I know a lot of people starting out, some you of don’t actually understand how it works even if you have these sheets that I’m going to show you. It might be a little cryptic to you, and I understand. You know, it was kind of interesting for me. I didn’t really understand it at the beginning and I’ve realized the more I try to explain this to people the more that it’s actually something that some people struggle with. So I thought I would try to help you out here and kind of explain it a little bit so that way, if you’re having any issues, this will hopefully answer it for you.
But what you have here is the P90X workout schedule. You have three options when you start P90X: you can do the Classic, you can do Doubles, or you can do Lean. And that all, you know, it all depends on what you want to do.
I have done Classic in my first round, and into my second round I’ve done Classic. I played around with Doubles for a week and that was cool but it takes a lot of time. It has a lot of time requirement. And Lean is for people that want to do more cardio as opposed to resistance, so if you want to either just stay lean or you want to lose some weight faster, some fat faster, do Lean because it incorporates a lot more cardio stuff as opposed to a lot of the resistance, which you can see here.
But I’m just going to explain this real quick. There’s three Phases and I’ll just go through each phase. They’re all about the same but I’ll explain it because Doubles change up a little bit. When you start out, Classic and Doubles are exactly the same in Phase 1. They don’t vary between your weeks 1, 2 and 3, and then your 4th week, which is your recovery week.
Lean is a little different because that involves some cardio, like I said. So if you want to do more cardio and burn more calories, more fat, there you go, do Lean. But most people start out with Classic.
So what you’ll do, you’ll notice here Classic weeks 1, 2 and 3, okay? It’s the same with all three of these but weeks 1, 2 and 3 is here, and then week 4 is right over here, and I’ll explain this to you, okay?
