Comment posted If I want to lose weight, should I do the ‘Classic’ or ‘Lean’ P90X routines? by Sarah.
I’ve read almost all of your posts and want to thank you for all of the great information! I also want to ask how you can stand to repeat yourself for everyone? haha
Here’s my question(s): I’m 29, 5’3 and weigh approximately 140 pounds. I am naturally pretty muscular (legs) and most people freak out when I tell them I weigh 140. I am getting ready to start the P90X (yes, Classic) but in the midst of losing weight, gaining muscle mass (toning up) I am really hoping to target my butt. I’d like it to firm up/shrink/you know, look sexy again! Do you think I should add some sort of special butt exercises/dvds or should P90X do the trick? I would hate to finish the 90 days and then have to work on my butt when I could have been adding it in all along.
Also, I know you’ve told people to not do cardio with the workouts at least until the 3rd month, however, when I was working out I would do 30 minutes on the elliptical after weight training. I guess my question is should I be concerned with adding my own cardio? Will I really get enough from the P90X dvds?
I know that the scale is not really a good indicator of health/fitness and that it’s all about the way you feel/look but society has brainwashed us into thinking that it’s all about a number. I know that I can weigh 130 pounds but my husband says my goal should be 120-125. Honestly I have an idea of how I want to look and I really don’t care what I weigh as long as I can achieve that goal. I’m hoping that with pictures/measurements I will be able to really track my progress.
As for my calories, I read that you state 10x your body weight which means I should be eating about 1400. What’s the lowest amount of calories I should be consuming? Also once I reach my goal weight/fitness level what should I do to maintain? Should I continue P90X like normal and how many calories should I consume to maintain?
Thanks again for all of your answers, it’s great that you are sharing all of this wonderful information to us!
