[Workout Review] T-Tapp's Barefoot Basic Plus DVD

Although it is highly recommended to wear shoes while learning the Total Workout or doing any standing T-Tapp exercises due to the arch support and better balance, the Barefoot Basic Plus clinic workout teaches the primary principles of how to maximize muscle activation and safely do the Basic Workout Plus without shoes. Application of these techniques can also be done while wearing shoes to increase intensity and effectiveness of ANY workout you do! You can feel it working your legs a lot more.

Barefoot Basic Plus

This DVD includes three workouts in one!

1. Barefoot Basic Plus Workout + Instruction (45 minutes)
2. Barefoot Basic Plus Workout Only (30 minutes)
3. Hoe Down Showdown 55 (45 minutes)

Last night I did the Barefoot Basic Plus Workout + Instruction with my sister.  It was her first time watching a T-Tapp DVD and doing those exercises, but with her dance background she followed along pretty easily and could feel the exercises working.  I was lucky enough to be in the class during the filming of this workout...and was amazed at how much more you can activate your muscles when you engage your feet.  Even just lifting the big toe will make you feel your tummy!  We may try the workout without instruction tonight.

Hoe Down Showdown 55 is also on this DVD. Filmed during our 2009 Retreat at the Safety Harbor Resort & Spa, this record breaking, super aerobic "workout" features everyone doing 55 sets of Hoe Downs non-stop! Now YOU CAN too!  During the class I only completed 10 sets, which was enough for me at the time.  I taught my nephew how to do Hoe Downs the other day and he keeps asking to "do that exercise again"!  Hoe Downs are great for all ages.  Get this DVD to follow along to see how many sets you can do with good form. It's fun, challenging and you can get the whole family involved.

Overall this workout is well worth it! You get 3 different routines to work with and the techniques you learn can easily be applied to any other form of exercise or T-Tapp workout to increase your results.Yes You Can!

Benefits of Face Brushing

You've heard me talk about Body Brushing and all the wonderful health and beauty benefits that come along with it, but what about Face Brushing? You can brush your face and neck and get the same type of benefits as body brushing delivers! Facial brushing removes dead skin and stimulates circulation , which firms and improves skin tone . Your skin will become softer and smoother ! It's like a mini facial massage every time you brush, a fabulous way to spoil yourself during your daily facial cleaning routine. In order to do the face brushing sequence you need a small natural-fiber bristle brush . The important thing to look for when selecting the appropriate face brush are natural plant fiber bristles. Do not use the type with plastic bristles because it will not have the same effect. I'm excited to announce that T-Tapp now sells  face brushes ! In addition to the Body Brushing Sequence,  Teresa Tapp created a special Face Brushing Sequence that has been proven

Benefits of Body Brushing

Body brushing is incredible for the skin and healing of the body. Europeans have been body brushing for centuries...maybe that's why they look so fantastic! This blog post will go into some education about What is Body Brushing? Body Brushing is also known as skin brushing and dry brushing . It's done using a natural bristle brush, like the T-Tapp Body Brush pictured above ($11.00, ). Teresa Tapp, creator of the T-Tapp Workout and author of Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes , has developed a specific body brushing pattern that's proven to be effective for all ages and a variety of health and beauty concerns. Teresa's pattern involves brushing the entire body from the feet all the way up to the neckline. Once finished go back and brush the areas that need a little extra attention, such as the butt, thighs and abdomen.  It's best to body brush first thing in the morning , when the increased blood flow will help wake you up and the body is in a natur

Amazing Eats at Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen

Last night I had the most fabulous meal with my sista at Pappadeaux in Atlanta. She's been keeping this place a secret from me! We get there around 8pm and find out that she knows the hostess from way back. (Our buzzer literally went off after about 5 minutes when there was over a 40 minute wait for a table. VIP!) The first thing that we ordered was the most delicious dip I have EVER put in my mouth, hands down! Lump Crab & Spinach Dip with crispy garlic cheese bread ...OMG. I could eat that by itself and call it a night. I saw a woman with this drink and had to order one for myself. It's called a Swamp Thing made from a mix of raspberry and melon liqueurs blended with frozen Hurricane & Margarita . Fantastic! Brain freeze though. I hate to admit that even though I'm a Florida girl, I've never had oysters before . She was shocked and insisted that we order some. Her favorites were the Oysters Baton Rouge - oysters on the half shell baked with a Parm
