45min - 1hour should be enough for any workout.

There are interesting studies that show when doing anaerobic exercise (the bodybuilding type lifting most people here and in the gym do) that after approximately an hour of work your body begins to release cortisol as well as other detrimental hormones.

You can get an excellent workout in for two people (you and a spotter) in about an hour's time frame. You just can't candy ass it around the gym like oh so many people do (2 minutes breaks in between sets, 5 mins between stations, etc.)

It takes me about an hour to warm up.

I work out for about a hour & half everymorning. If you are working out for 2 hrs your spending to much time in the gym jerking each other off.


I spend a Hour working out & 30 mins running.

During the week we are done in under an hour, but Saturday's are a little longer, as we tend to rest and BS a little more. We've been in ther ove 2 hours a couple times when a few "newbies" came to train, so we had a small group to cycle through the lfts.

1.5 to 2 hours is average for me. There is no way Im working two different muscle groups and getting out in 45 to an hour, even with super sets and no talking.

45 minutes tops

of course it helps that the gym is my garage and I don't have to wait on anyone to leave the station.

I go into the gym and do my shit. Plain and simple. It's a lot shorter for me now since I am barely doing any cardio, but still. I did back last night

lat pulldowns, 3 sets
seated rows, 3 sets
wide grip lat pulls, 3 sets
horizontal dumbell rows, 3 sets
bent over barbell rows, 3 sets
hammer strength pulls, 3 sets

and I f'ed around with the hack squat because I wanted to.

I was solo, so it took maybe 30 minutes minus the hacks. The actual core workout was a hair under 30 minutes. I take a one minute breather between sets of dumbell rows, so that I can go heavier (70 x 12, 95 x 10, 110 x 6), and I still can get in and out around 30 minutes.

I'm still learning all this stuff, but my time is right at an hour + 10 minutes cardio warmup prior. I always end with about 15 minutes cardio as well so in 70 minutes, it's about 25 minutes cardio 45 minutes on the circuit. My time between reps and stations depends on my heart rate as it's still building up. Sustained target rate is 144. Of course, working the legs increases the HR quicker than upper body (except push-ups for some reason).
