    Re: How long to workout?

    it has been proven in studies but MORE IMPORTANTLY actual real life experience that training for more than 90 minutes is actually counter productive

    go to the gym, handle your business, and leave. if you want to count post workout stretching as working out then that is fine but even so it should never exceed 90 minutes. you should be able to handle shit in 40-75 minutes that is all

    strength training takes time. just working out everyday 2 hours and pounding your body into the dirt is only going to get you injured.

    Depending on your rest periods, stretching, prepping, adding in cardio, workout lengths vary wildly. Do what works for you without overtraining, allowing enough time to recover.

    Re: How long to workout?

    2 hours seems excessive. If you are training right, bot on your phone, fucking off, talking etc. You shouldn't need more than 60 to 75 minutes
