If you want to lose weight, go with Classic. You will burn more calories with Classic than you will with Lean. There are several studies that show that working out with weights produces a much longer post workout caloric burn than cardio does. Your metabolic burn rate will be elevated after a resistance training session up to 48 hours vs. just 2 – 3 with cardio. It’s not how many calories you burn during exercise, it’s how many you burn all day long. Beyond that, adding more muscle burns more calories. You can add muscle without getting bulky if that’s what you want to do. So even if you think you have good muscle, you can make it leaner and metabolically more active with resistance training.
Lastly, if you want to lose weight around the waist, you definitely need to go with Classic. Not only will you be doing 3 ab ripper x workouts per week vs. 2, the synergistic impact of developing muscle mass in your legs, chest and back will also help you develop more ripped abs. The higher intensity of Classic will enable you to burn more fat off your abs as well.
