I purchased the P90x set of dvds but can’t seem to decide whether or not to use the Classic or Lean version. I used to be a very strong/fit athlete a few years ago but have packed on the pounds since taking on a full-time job (poor food choices, too many happy hours, and mostly a sedentary life-style). I have approximately 30-40 pounds to lose and I’m really looking to lose weight and just be very lean and fit. I see that you suggest the Classic, but I’m still not sure.
My concerns regarding the classic aren’t that I’ll “bulk up” b/c I know I won’t be taking the supplements and lifting the amount of weight necessary to do that, but I just want to pick the routine that will be the most effective AND easiest to stick to. I tried the Ab Ripper X dvd just to get a taste for P90x (made it through with only a few less reps on the standard setting, which I was quite proud of), but I was ridiculously sore for almost 4 days after that and didn’t feel like doing much of anything on those days b/c of it. I’m worried that I’ll start the Classic and just be so sore that I won’t stick to it or skip days, etc. I’m sure that the lean will still kick my ass, but since it’s more “cardio-focused”, I’m wondering if it will limit the soreness and keep me engaged in the program?? Or maybe there’s some kind of recovery trick that I can do to minimize it? I’m totally committed to making a change, but I also don’t want to be absolutely miserable for the next 90 days of my life haha
I’ve also taken note of your nutrition/dietary suggestions, and they seem like they make a lot of sense and that they’re something I can likely stick to, so thanks for that.
What are your thoughts/suggestions?
