Thank you – I’m glad you are getting something out of this site! And congratulations for taking on P90X Classic.
When you miss a workout or two, I recommend you just move on. But get past 2 workouts and I say start over on the partially completed week. In your case, that means to repeat week 4. I know you want to get as great results as possible by late November but what your body is telling you when you got sick is that that your immune system was too weak to fight off the virus. When you work out hard, you can add a lot of stress to your body which affects cortisol levels and can significantly suppress your immune system. So back off and re-do the recovery week. Also review both your diet and exercise routine. Are you eating properly? Are you trying to do doubles too soon? I don’t recommend doubles before month 3 and even then, most people are not ready for that level of stress.
As far as the general guidelines, they are pretty good for most people. I mean if you want to be precise, go read my extended article I reference in the response to Teresa which will show you how to calculate for yourself how much you need to ensure you are going to lose weight. I spend more time there with ratios and the ‘whys’ of the diet I recommend.
I wish you the best success!
