Resistance bands are a good tool for working your back. Admittedly you won’t get as strong a back with them as you would with a pull up bar and pull ups but you can still get a good workout if you use heavy resistance bands and work your back intensely.
I never get the concept of ‘toning’ a body. There isn’t any such thing as toning outside the whacky world of women’s fitness magazines. All you can do is 1) add to or reduce your bodyfat and 2) add to your muscle mass or suffer muscle atrophy. So in order to look your best you want to reduce bodyfat while adding lean body mass (muscle). Diet and exercise work together to accomplish this. As far as exercise goes, the more large muscle groups your work with resistance training, not only will you add more muscle mass, you will alter your hormonal profile such that you’ll be ready to burn more fat. So with that as a background, P90X Classic will do more for you than Lean. Once you get to the body structure you like best, you can always then move to a 2x per week resistance training pattern and add more cardio if you are fearful of too much muscle.
