Day 3 of TapoutXT
Yesterday was day 3 of the TapoutXT program. You would think that 3 days would see little – if any – progress. After all, what can 3 days do, especially since I haven not been able to even get through a complete program yet?
However, I have already lost 3 lbs and am starting to feel that “good” stiffness throughout my entire body.
Besides finding a renewed sense of pushing myself again, this program is also showing me that anything is possible when you have a bit of fortitude and dedication. Mike Karpenko is unlike any other trainer I have seen. He is motivating, energetic, and the mere fact that everything is applicable to Wing Chun (at least as I have seen so far), that in itself keeps me going.
Make no mistake about it, this program is tough. It is the real deal and you have to approach it with the most positive attitude you can muster. Like you have read already, the programs are about 50 minutes and I am still only able to complete maybe 30 minutes so far.
But I deserve it. I deserve to be healthy both physically and mentally. TapoutXT delivers that and I am going to make the most of it. Right now I can barely move so that’s a bit of a bummer, especially when I have class tomorrow. That will prove interesting, to say the least.
Still, I am looking forward to seeing what happens in class after a couple of weeks being on Tapout XT. For my students reading this, get ready for a new me because I’m coming in faster and harder.
Well, once I can move again, that is.
I will make periodic updates with my progress as we go along with the program. I want everyone to see if TapoutXT really lives up to its claims. I am more than under the impression that it will, but you will be going with me on this journey.
Now I am going to lay down and take a nap. Maybe cry myself to sleep.
