Looking at les mills body combat....but not sure
I've been doing insanity since last march, great results. But my body has stopped losing and I'm less then 10 away from goal. I'm looking for a change, but not sure if the body combat is the right route. I've been stuck at the same weight for 2 months, I'm thinking my body needs a change up exercise wise from the usual insanity, but not sure where to go next.

Hi.
You may have reached a plateau. Combat is an awesome workout that may challenge you and help you to get through the plateau. Personally I am in my 5th week of doing the program and I am starting a facebook challenge group in a few days and the information is posted on the message boards. If there is anything I can do for you just let me know. I hope this helps.Take care and have a great day.

Hi SweetCee,

You have been doing High-Intensity Training for almost a year. In my professional opinion, you should switch to a program that offer more resistance training like P90X. You'll still get cardio, but you will incorporate the resistance training that your body needs. You need to put on muscle. 1 lb of muscle burns about 40-50 cals per day. Combat is a great program, but by switching over to hit you will still be doing the same type of training ( high-intensity) and therefore will get the same results.

If you need further support, feel free to reach out to me.

In Health,

I have p90x, I've never done it. Maybe a hybrid between the two may work.

I absolutely love Les Mills Combat but I also love P90x and Asylum series..I would look into doing P90x because the more muscle you have on the body the better

Hello SweetCee, Super congrats on your Insanity/Beachbody Journey; I've done Insanity x 2 and I know how challenging it is.
You are totally on the right track - your body has had enough of Insanity and it's time for a break. The only way you are going to change your weight and body is to challenge it in new ways.

Combat will do that. And, 10 lbs, is a reasonable amount of weight to lose over 60 days provided you also look at your diet. No program will do it all - you have to feed your body good fuel/food and take in about 500 fewer calories a day to lose 1lb a week. So, I suggest following the program guide in terms of nutrition; give every workout 100% percent - like you did in Insanity - and give it a month..

Be sure to measure yourself and take before pics and your weight - you have to know where you start to know if you are progressing.

I'd love for you to join my message thread - I'm only hearing crickets now and would love some folks to join in - http://www.teambeachbody.com/connect/message-boards/-/message_boards/message/250684511

I'm just starting week 2 and love it. I also felt like you - it might be too easy - but you and your body need a change and you can get some incredible results. Combat 60 was challenging yesterday and I felt it/feel it today.

Hope to see you on my thread and I wish you tremendous success with COMBAT and all you do.

Yes, SweetCee,

Adding resistance training is going to help you get results. Again, you have been doing high-intensity training for just about a year. Doing do another version of high-intensity training like combat, will produce the same results you already have. All of the coaches mean well here and want to help you, but they are missing the science behind periodization training. Do P90X for 3 months and watch how you break through your plataeu...then switch to Combat
