Comment posted If I want to lose weight, should I do the ‘Classic’ or ‘Lean’ P90X routines? by Coach Nancy.
Thanks for stopping by! Regarding your question I encourage you to think this way – it’s the workout that should focus primarily on adding lean mass and your diet to bulk up or burn fat. Sure some cardio can help with fat burning but resistance training will burn more calories in the 24 – 48 hours following the workout than will cardio. And the lean mass you add will burn more calories 24/7. Moreover, if you workout intensively those resistance training sessions will burn the same calories as the other workouts with the exception of Plyo which you’ll do during classic anyway.
I have a post on diet that you may find helpful at http://www.pressplayfitness.com/?p=2105.
In summary, do classic and you will lean up if you follow my diet guidelines. My husband did classic, did not even do all the cardio in the classic program and lost 50lbs while adding a lot of lean mass. He actually got so lean he added back on 5lbs so he didn’t look quite so thin. You can see his transformation at http://www.pressplayfitness.com/?page_id=2079.
