Re: insanity, and loosing milk supply

I haven't worked out with a program like that while nursing. But I would think as long as you are still eating plenty of calories than you should be fine. If you notice a decrease supply I would up your water intake by a lot and increase your food, with good healthy foods. GOod Luck!!

Re: insanity, and loosing milk supply

I would say at least increase your calories by 1,000 which includes the 500 calories for BF'ng.

I haven't done P90X but have done couple rounds of Insanity and I incorporate it twice a week with four days of weight training. You'll be starving honestly if you do Insanity or similar activities at least five times a week.

Insanity alone burns up to 700 or so calories in an hour; and that's not counting whatever calories that's used to restore your body. Water intake would be critical as at least for me drinking 32 oz of water is usually done during the workout not to mention you will be covered in sweat (if you sweat easily especially) the first 10 minutes of the warm up. An ounce of water for every two pounds of your body weight might be a good measure.

Food wise increase your lean protein intake, good fats and healthy source of carbohydrates. If you find it hard to add more protein into the diet I would consider using protein shake or meal replacements. Especially with Insanity you'll want to eat no later than 45 minutes after the workout to replenish your body and basically have the body switch to a restoring mode.

Insanity is great for both speed, strength and leaning out. But also it does require you to do a lot of jumping and moves that require explosive movement so if there are any concerns I would speak to a professional before starting this type of exercise. Good luck

I tried with both my children to do even minimal workouts and my supply would drastically suffer, didn't matter how many more calories I consumed or how much water I drank stopping exercise was what helped. I had to stick with just yoga and walking, I guess the hormones released from exercising triggered my milk hormones.
I try increasing your water intake first or before really getting into the DVDs

i have done p90x (the whole program) while bf my 2nd kid. he was over a year tho and well he didn't need the breast milk. needless to say he weaned himself very shortly after i started my program. I managed to loose 50+ lbs. ahh im just so ready to workout, but i do not want my 7 month old dd to wean.

I'd be interested in hearing what you think about px90... it's super intimidating to me!
