Comment posted If I want to lose weight, should I do the ‘Classic’ or ‘Lean’ P90X routines? by Coach Nancy.
If you’ve read my replies here, you’ll notice I am very consistent. Do Classic.
Lean won’t build muscle mass the way Classic will. Since you want to lose weight you may be thinking you don’t want to gain lean muscle but lack of lean muscle is part of your current condition. More muscle and your body burns more calories. More muscel and you can exert more forcefully during your workouts and expend more calories. Did you kow that the body burns extra calories after a resistance workout for 24 – 48 hours? After a cardio routine the ‘after burn’ lasts only 2 – 4 hours. And the body burns more calories after a resistance workout than it does after a cardio routine – with a higher percentage coming from fat!
Doubles are way too much for an out of shape, significantly overweight woman such as yourself to consider at this time. Get fit first and then consider doubles.
At the end of the day you need to accept that you took years to put on all the extra fat you now want to lose. Make a real decision to improve your lifestyle and aim for 30lbs (maybe as much as 40lbs) over your first round of P90X.
