    Default Tapout Help

    I also posed this home At home, but it might be a better fit here.

    I recently started Tapout XT and I love the program. Unfourtunately, I just don't have the time to workout six days a week, at least not on a regular basis. After looking over the calender and reviewing the workouts it seems as though a few of them a fairly similar. (Strength + force Upper and Ripped Conditioning for example). So my question is, do I need to do EVERY workout on the calender, or is there some I don't need, or can be substituted on a 4 day a week training schedule?

    sounds like you overpaid for a gimmick product

    I really can't answer your question as I train Affliction

    Tapout XT is exactly the same as p90x and Insanity, the gimmick here being the UFC brand to make men feel more comfortable about doing it. The tagline "if you want to look like a fighter you have to train like a fighter" is baffling. Truth is no fighter in history has ever trained like that.

    Like all these programs it boasts "remarkable" results within 90 days or so, but when you consider that it has you prancing around for 60-120 minutes per day, 6 days a week, it's no wonder the flab falls off these people. What they don't tell you is with a real routine these fat loss results can be achieved with a 3 day per week workout, 45-60 minutes per session within around the same overall time frame, and you'd gain more muscle and strength to boot.

    That said, if you're ever stuck at home for whatever reason and fancy doing a bit of cardio, you could do worse than one of these DVDs if you find them more motivating than just doing a bodyweight circuit. Aside from that, I'd advise you to take the plunge, buy a starter weight set or a gym / martial arts academy membership.
