Comment posted on If I want to lose weight, should I do the ‘Classic’ or ‘Lean’ P90X routines? by Coach Nancy
Do you ever watch the show The Biggest Loser? I bring this up because the people on there are very overweight and yet you never see Trainers Bob or Jillian saying “gosh you are too heavy to do resistance training”. And that’s because if you really want to make a change in your metabolism you need to build muscle which you are sorely missing. So even in your case, you need to do the resistance training which is the core, the ‘secret’ of why Classic is always better than Lean.
What you do need to do is take it easy on the moves. You won’t be able to do push ups from your toes so you’ll do them from your knees. And if that’s too hard in the beginning you’ll do them leaning against a wall. You won’t be able to do pull ups either. Use a band and do pull downs. You can modify the workout to work at your level. What I would be careful of is Plyo, Cardio-x and Core Synergistics. At this point a brisk walk (if on a treadmill do it at a slight incline) would be best for you until you lose about 20lbs and build some muscle.
Most importantly change your thinking about eating and make your workouts a priority in your life. Don’t look for excuses, look for creative ways to fit it in when you are tight on time. Follow my diet guidelines I lay out in my article ‘My P90X Diet’ which you can find listed in the Popular Posts section in the right hand column.
Do these things and you will change! I appreciate your looking to do this the healthy way and not just opt for surgery! Let me know how it is going for you!
