Is it possible to reduce back/chest size?
A long time ago I used to do a lot of free weights. As a result, my chest and back size increased significantly. While the muscles are now gone, the size remains today.

I started the P90X regular program and noticed that I was getting toned, put the size seemed to increase, which is not what I'm looking for.

I have read in other posts that the mass gain is temporary (due to muscle soreness) and may diminish as I continue exercising. My question is, is it possible to reduce the size I already had coming into the program?

I am now thinking about doing the lean program, but I do see that it requires exercises for the back, and I'm afraid it'll make me bigger.

Also, I know diet is going to play a huge role, but would it be safe to assume that if I consume less calories (even less than suggested in the meal plan) I'll see an even bigger reduction in size?

Doing the lean program is a great way to get toned!!! But eating less calories is not the answer. Maintaining a solid caloric intake each day will keep you where you want to be. Gaining size is a combination of heavy lifting and high caloric intake....you can become nice and lean without looking like a "monster" maintaing a solid nutrition plan. If you stay with moderate weights and really nail your nutrition, you should get the results you are looking for.

If you need help with developng a nutrition plan, please feel free to reach out to me as I would be more than willing to asist you with this!!
