Any exercise is good but between Lean and Classic, Classic is better. The thing is that based on your age, you are about to cross an invisible line and it’s not a good one but you can’t avoid it either. Now every year you will lose about .5% of your weight in lean mass. In other words, you are now going to start losing muscle. This is a natural course of aging but if you work out with resistance training you can avoid that. So the thing is, you’ve probably have already lost some muscle which means that the weight gain is more than 20lbs of fat it’s something like 21 or 22lbs of fat and 1 or 2lbs of muscle loss. Classic is the version most focused on building muscle through resistance training so it will do more for you. Resistance training burns more calories and burns a greater percentage of those calories from fat when you calculate from the point of exercise through 40 hours. Cardio only elevates your metabolism and burns additional calories for a couple hours post exercise compared to the near 40 hours you get from weight training.
Plus as I tell gals all the time, cardio does little to remodel what you have. You typically just become a smaller version (at best) of what you were. But with resistance training, you lift and firm that booty, you create abs to die for and flabby arms become lean and toned. That’s what most men find sexy. Pick what you want but the greater transformation will always come from doing Classic as long as you ‘bring it’ to each workout.
