    How long is your workout?!

    I am in the process of completely redesigning my workouts completely due to work schedule and what not.

    I am trying to put a time frame of what will be sufficient & how often.

    This does not include cardio - that I am quite proficient in

    But, workout length - well, till now it has never had to be timed.

    40-50 mins at the most - one body part every 7-10 days.

    I recently switched to 45-60 second rest breaks and I am done in 45 min or so. I do 4-6 exercises at 4 sets each plus a couple warm ups and feel sets near the beginning. It is nice to get in and out quicker and my workouts have been feeling more productive.

    About 17yrs give or take. I was doing one body part per week but I need more time to recover these days and it fits in with my schedule

    Good input hur

    I have been doing 2x muscle groups per day hitting each twice a week

    The results have been just great to me


    But, having a new schedule to follow will not allow me this kind of time at all

    Warm up and lifting time here.
    Low number of sets, dorian style, higher reps when on juice. To failure and beyond.

    I cannot talk on the phone after an arms workout, cant hold it up. Sometimes need assistance from my gf taking off tshirt or sweater after shoulder or chest workout, shower can only do it after some recovery or soaping is not an option...

    Usually 1-2 hours depending on the workout, on my current programming it's usually about an hour but for one of the bench sessions it's about 1.5 because i hit the whole upper body.

    Before this one i'd be in the gym until i felt like i was done, sometimes up to 3 hours (massive rests) and i was making great progress, will be going back to it after the meet.

    I would say an hour and a half on the average. Seeing how strength is more my target, I take fairly long rests when doing my compound movements.

    Ever since I began Marcus' HIT approach, no more than 50-60 minutes including warmup

    Before when I did volume it would ramp up to about 90mins regularly.

    3-4 days a week, 45-60 minutes. I used to do longer workouts and more days a week, but as I've evolved to more HIT style my workouts have gotten shorter and I need more rest.

    Interesting, pretty much everyone on here seems to be leaning toward this type of workout.


    Yet, at the gym the biggest guys do the opposite - they just live there, working out slow with large rest periods & starring at asses

    But, staring at asses is a huge part of my routine


    1 part lift, 2 part stare - so we're looking like 3 hour workouts here . . . . LoL

    From the moment I step into the gym to the moment I step out ~ 1 hour 45mins - 2 hours. Includes bike work, stretching at the start and ending and warmup exercises for shoulder prep / groin for squats.

    High Intensity hitting opposing muscles in a supperset fashion while taking 30 sec in between one set....chest/back / bis tris shoulders /legs repeat (hits two body parts in one day while keeping it at about an hour! Rep range 6-10 to true failure, will go up to 12 reps for burning out each muscle group or switching it up each split(heavy 3/6/8/10. - light 8/10/12)...

    Ya can't match this intensity off cycle... lol so I do back off to 3-4x a wk at like 6 sets per b/p during PCT and focus more on the negative;eccentric motion)....
