Okay, girls, let's get down and dirty. Yes, I got the vast majority of my results with short workouts. Usually 15-20 minutes, up to 30 minutes. (But I think interspersing seasons of long workouts a couple of times a week was important, too). The promise of "15 minutes" is what drew me to T-Tapp in the first place. "15 minutes" kept me going through busy days. I would think "anybody can do 15 minutes." And of course it was a little more than 15 minutes by the time I changed clothes and brushed, but still, no more than 25 minutes. Okay, so we've established the fact that I did "15 minutes" a lot.
But does that mean it was easy? Did I not sweat? Did I flop through and jump in the shower? No, no, no, my dears. I groaned. I dripped. I researched form. I pushed myself. I worked HARD in that 15 minutes. True confession: More than once, when I was still really, really overweight (like 100 pounds), in the middle of the workout I sat down on the edge of the bed and cried a little bit because it was hard. Then I stood up, pulled up my socks and pushed *play* again.
So yes, 15 minutes. Fifteen efficient, effective minutes. But easy? Not exactly. Worth it? Most definitely.
