Before you work on building muscle, you need to lose the weight. Drop your calories to 1900. For every ten pounds of weight loss, increase calories by 100.

That should help you lose the weight quicker. By the time you're down to 208 you'll be eating 2500 calories. At that point I'd assess your bodyfat%. Not sure how much of that 268 is muscle.

Cross that bridge when you get to it.

You're frame is not what P90X was designed for. There is a fit test. It specificaly says if you can't pass the fit test do Power 90 first.

Now since you own P90X and don't want to waste your money, both the exercises and the nutrition plan can be modified to mirror power 90.

By default you're already mirroring Power 90 with your workouts. I doubt you can do 8-10 wide grip pull-ups without assistance or hang with all of Plyometrics.

And that's O.K. The nutrition guide from Power 90 has you eating less. You have an abundant source of energy attached to you body. Your fat. By reducing your caloric intake, you're body will have to find another source of energy to pull from. The first place it will grab from is your fat.

Allow it to do that. As time progresses your body willadapt to your caloric intake. that's why you increase by 100-200 calories for every 10 pounds of weight loss. I say 100 but everyone's body is different.

Trust me on this. You didn't get results the first time. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing again and expecting different results every time.


I'd personaly reccomend fat shredder for you at 50%protein/30%carbs/20%fats to begin with. Then you can increase carbs a little once weight loss begins to stall to get your body back where it needs to be.

So try it for two weeks and report back to let me know how it went.
