    If I take more than an hour to get through my workout then I am not lifting intensely enough.

    I try to aim for 45 mins to 1 hr max with half hour to 40 mins on top of that for cardio. Higher intensity, shorter workout. 30 seconds rest between sets when on my own, however long it takes until it's my turn again when training with partners.

    hour, hour and a half is usual. I remember one day in particular last year when my partner and I spent 2hrs 45 min on shoulders and arms, 6 sets per exercise 3 exercises per muscle group. that one sucked

    usually an hour to 1 /12 depends on how long the breaks are.

    always 45 min to an hour. Thats when test levels are at its peak. Any more then that and your wasting your time IMO as your body begins to release cortisol which can lead to muscle break down and not muscle building.

    More than hour has been linked to drop in hormone levels and higher catabolism. I try to keep it to 45 min.

    Usually 60-90 mins, depends on what muscle I am working, and if I do an ab workout after lifting. Those are always the 90 minute days. If I had to stay in my gym longer than 90 mins, I would shoot myself!

    Im about 40 or 45 minutes. Sometimes longer depending on what im doing. THe question is, when on Juice how long do you lift for. I was at around an hour to an hour and a half.

    Since I started my first cycle being going very high intensity--less sets and more weight. Average workout time has decreased from 1 hour to about 45 mins.

    45 minutes to an hour about 4 times a week, 1 direct workout on each body part per week. I train intense, I always go to faliure, at least on the last set of every exercise. I train on quality not quantity.

    When I do one body part, it's usually 45 mins.
    When I do 2 body parts, it's usually 1 hr.
    When I do abs, it's an extra 15-20 mins added on to my workout.
