Comment posted If I want to lose weight, should I do the ‘Classic’ or ‘Lean’ P90X routines? by Coach Nancy.
Thanks for stopping by! I’m glad you came back and told me your age because that does make a difference. Younger gals have more lean muscle mass than those of us older. By the time you hit 40, your body is definitely losing muscle mass. In your case, because you have been active with the Bikram yoga, you are in much better shape and have had less loss than most women your age.
In your case, you only need to lose a few pounds so I’d recommend a modified Classic routine. You love the yoga so you should continue to do that. Replace the P90X yoga and Kempo with your Bikram yoga. Keep the strength training routines and the Plyometrics. When you get to recovery week, you can do all Bikram yoga.
Be sure to get enough protein in your diet while you do this. What you want to do is to build 2 -3 lbs of lean mass while you actually take off 7 – 8 lbs of fat for your best look. Not only is protein essential for building lean muscle, it also raises your metabolism so it helps you burn fat.
Let me know if you have other questions!
