    Re: Lifting weights

    if you did an upper body day and a lower body day split twice a week you can mantain your results for sure. if done properly of course.

    2 hour sessions are never a good idea and that is laughable. are spending most of the time socializing? you should be able to get your workout easily in under an hour

    You know the gym today: 2 hours total

    30 minutes of texting
    30 minutes of bullshitting
    30 minutes of selfies
    another 15 minutes of texting
    15 minutes of going thru the motions pretending to train
    You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great

    Forget 2 hours. I did shoulders, arms (bis and tris) and forearms in 1hr 20mins.

    If, however, I was doing 2 sessions a week they'd be push/pull and if I wasn't pissing in the wind they'd be an hour each

    More frequent shorter workout would be better. Long duration workouts increase cortisol levels.

    Instead of 2 2hour workouts I would rather you do 4 1hour workouts

    If you are completely new to the sport you are gonna see results whatever it is you start doing.

    Is it optimal to train only twice a week?
    No.

    I'd try to get at least 3-4 sessions because that would allow better distribution of volume and intensity.

    For good health, maintenence, and smaller gains 2 days is great. If you were really looking for serious growth I would say 3 is a minimum.

    I'm in and out within an hour unless I decide to do cardio too.
