Not sure which P90X routine you should do? The answer is almost always do the CLASSIC Routine!
Here’s my reasoning:
If your goal is to lose body fat you need to do the Classic routine, not the Lean routine. Why? Because in the Classic routine you will build more muscle. The process of building muscles is a continuous process of breaking down and repairing muscle tissue…and that burns energy. Where will your body get that energy from? Food, and yep, you guessed it…body fat. MUSCLE BURNS FAT…period. Unlike your typical cardio routine, muscle building helps keep you metabolism high all day long…it’s a beautiful thing!
If your goal is to build muscle you need to do the Classic routine. It is perfectly designed with that goal in mind.
If your goal is to burn body fat at a rapid rate, like I did (and like my coach did) you need to do the Classic routine, not doubles. It is possible to exercise too much, really! If you stick to one workout per day, and REALLY hit the target on your nutrition and supplements you will see results. If you do doubles you risk wearing your body down so much that you can’t give 110% on your workouts, are more susceptible to injury, and you could even burn so many calories that your body goes into starvation mode (body slows your metabolism to conserve energy).
If your P90X Calender is falling apart from 90 days of your sweaty hands touching it, or it is just used up…great news! You can print out a brand new one right here!
