Just a quick one.
I have read in numerous mags and on the web that a workout session should last around 45-60min. Is this still the same when on a cycle or should you go a bit longer with the extra test in your system?

I'm usually 60 minutes.
If I'm on anything, I'll up the poundage and add a couple extra reps.

Anyways, make sure you have a good routine and you aren't overworking anything. As far as rest time between sets, I don't use a clock or anything and I start my next set based on when my heartrate says I'm good to start the next one. Don't take huge breaks but give yourself enough time between sets. Don't worry about the clock, just get your work in (assuming you have a good routine) rest as much as your body tells you to, not more, and you're good.

that all depend how many days you are in the gym if you lift 5-6 days a wk, than a half hour is possible, if you lift 3 times a wk, it nmay take you an hour nd half because you have more work to do since you aren'tin the gym as often. 60miniutes is optimal;, but an hour anf a half won't kill you either. listen to your body, if you feel burned out with long workouts, then cut the time back, and if you are on GEAR imo your worout frequency is higher a well as recpueration time so yes you cando more time that the average drug free lifter.

When people say 1.5 hours in the gym, I find 99% spend wayyyy toooo much time gabbing and resting......90 sec. rest MAX between lighter lifts, 2-3minutes between heavier.........so, squats and deads and bench may be upwards of 2-3 mins, but fly, leg ext., calves, etc, 90 seconds max.
