What sorts of results did I get while using P90X to lose my pregnancy weight?
In the month I used P90X as a postpartum workout to lose my pregnancy weight I lost a total of 25 pounds coupled with the diet. I did noticed an increase in muscle tone mostly in my legs.
Would I recommend P90X to other new moms as a postpartum workout to lose the pregnancy weight?
Not as a first postpartum workout, perhaps after picking up a lower intensity workout program and then doing it for a few months the transition to P90X would be less severe and not affect health negatively. However going straight from postpartum recovery light exercise to P90X was way too much for my body at least and I wouldn’t recommend others trying. Even later, I would say the amount of time you can devote to exercise and how much you enjoy yoga would play a big part in whether P90X would work for you. If you do have time, do like yoga, and have been regularly exercising I did see notable enough results to say P90X does work.
I am currently trying Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred as I still have 15 lbs to lose. You can check back later for a review as to whether that workout program works well as a postpartum routine to lose pregnancy weight.
