Fitness bees, I need help!
I’m 10 weeks away from my wedding (74 days), and on week 5 of the P90x lean routine. I’m trying to decide if I should stick with P90x lean, or switch to T25.
I’ve made enough progress that I’d be OK getting married with my body as is, but I’d like to slim down a bit more. I haven’t been following the diet well, so I’m hopeful that changing my diet will make up the gap, but wondering if I’d see better results losing that last layer of fat with T25.
I could do T25 (50 days), then one month of P90X. Or I could finish P90X, then do 2 weeks of T25 right before the wedding. Or I could just do the one then repeat before the wedding.
Has anyone tried both? I’d love some feedback!

I highly recommend 21 day fix.. especially for the eating plan. It is the easiest to follow for me and get the extreme version if you are already doing P90x! I am on round 3 myself, I just continue right into another round (day 22 is day 1 of next round). I cannot say enough about it. I am down 16.5 inches in 2 rounds!!

I haven’t done either of those. I’ve done insanity, P90X and chalean extreme and liked them all for different reasons and have gotten great results from all. I guarantee you that if you cleaned up your diet you would see pretty great results in 10 weeks with either/both programs. Even switch them back and forth if you want (it also prevents getting sick of one or the other!). I recommend using a calorie-tracking app if you haven’t already. I use myfitnesspal and it’s really easy. I also recommend getting a food scale and weighing out everything instead of estimating portion sizes. Get a good balance of protein, healthy fats, and complex carbs, keep your calories under a certain amount (myfitnesspal will set that up for you according to your info/goals), and be consistent with your workouts and you will see some awesome results. Promise!

You posted this two weeks ago, so I’m assuming you probably decided BUT…. I would highly recommend finishing P90x but classic not lean. Or just adding in some weight lifting to your workouts. I pumped up the weightlifting before my wedding and I was so glad I did, you could really tell in my wedding photos. The thing you notice most in a wedding dress is your arms and back, So focus on those! You’ll still burn enough calories to not gain andyour overal body fat will go down making u look slimmer. Good luck!

I ended up settling on T25 M-F, then P90X arms on Saturday (or rock climbing), and P90X stretch on Sundays!
They’re both awesome, but I definitely agree that T25 doesn’t do as much for arms as P90X, so I’m subbing in the extra!
