Hi Aimee, A couple of thoughts: 1) You stretched outOct 2nd, 2010 | By Nancy Andrews | Category:
Comment posted If I want to lose weight, should I do the ‘Classic’ or ‘Lean’ P90X routines? by Coach Nancy.
A couple of thoughts:
1) You stretched out your stomach for the better part of 9 months so expect to take 6 or 7 months to regain it.
2) Stick with Classic
3) Ab Ripper X is really hard at first. I never thought I’d master it but now I even do some of the moves with my arms up in the air and after I get done, I add on more ab work. Your muscles are really out of shape due to the pregnancy, be patient and it will come.
4) P90X is a 90 day program – it’s not designed to transform you in only 2 – 3 weeks so realize you have to take some time to let it do it’s thing to your body.
The biggest change comes in the last 30 days. That may not be what you want to hear but it’s true. To accelerate fat burning you should keep your diet to about 1250 – 1400 calories a day and make sure you keep to a 40/40/20 ratio of carbs/protein/fat. This is harder to do than it sounds. If you are not using a protein powder to supplement your protein needs you are not likely to be consuming enough protein.
Drink at least 1/2 gallon of water a day. Water can raise your metabolism and is necessary to clear your body of the by-products of fat burning.
In month 3 you can introduce ‘doubles’ into your routine. That’s an extra cardio session 3x a week.
