Comment posted If I want to lose weight, should I do the ‘Classic’ or ‘Lean’ P90X routines? by Kristen.
Ok, my first post didn’t show up for some reason? I had a question on resistance bands versus free weights. I’ve been using the bands since my weights aren’t heavy enough to feel the burn. I’m only on week 2 of phase 1 of the classic version but want some great results! I did Insanity and lost 16 lbs (5′ 10″ weigh 190 now) and am hoping to do well with P90X!
Does it matter as far as results, whether I’m using bands or free weights? I need to go get the bar, which is on my list to do this week, but have been using the attachment for the door frame for now. I have 5 lb weights but they’re too light for most of the workouts, except for a few shoulder and tricep moves, due to an old shoulder injury from volleyball many years ago.
I was going to get 10 lb weights, but don’t know if that will be enough?

- Nancy – I forgot to ask another question with last post. The yoga is hard for me to get in with an almost 2 year old demanding my attention. I have Jillian Michael’s yoga, is it ok to substitute?

Hi Nancy – I have a quick question on bands vs weights. I’ve been using bands because the weights I have aren’t heavy enough to feel the burn, and I’ve been contemplating which weight(s) to get. Will I get the same results with bands or am I better off with dumb bells? I have 5 lbs right now and know I need more, just not sure how much more? I am 5’10″ and weigh 190. I am on week 2 of Classic thanks to your great advise! I previously did Insanity and lost 16 lbs, so hoping for great results from P90X!
