How long to stay in the gym...
Just another thing I've wondered what other people do. I usually am there for 1.5-2 hours depending on what im working and how crowded it is. But i do rest a little longer than most people so im not going hard the whole time, just for 8 reps at a time. ive read threads about cortisol doing something after 47 minutes, whats that?
my buddy always thought i was over training but we took a look at arnolds bb encyclopedia and it says that overtraining in arnolds eyes is like 3-4 hours a day!
how long do yall stay in the gym?

should there be a difference between how long one is at the gym and how long one spends time training? I ask this because some just simply spend time at the gym and could halve the time they are there.
I never take longer than 1:15. Not becase I time it, but simply cause I just get through my training and never sit down. At the moment I take about 50mins.
One thing I'e picked up from reading about olympic weightlifters, or at least the Europeans, is that they never sit down but just get through their training.
