How Long Should My Workout Be?
⏱ A great question indeed but a simple one to clarify.
If you think you need to spend over 2 hours in the gym, you do not. There are plenty of people who can tolerate that duration of intensity but in terms of the average beginner that is beyond unnecessary.
Unless you are working out with a group of people, you can accomplish 98% of your workouts in 45 to 60 minutes. There will be times where more rest between sets is needed and it may run into the 90 minute range but even then it’s rare. Anything beyond that for extended periods of time could be detrimental as opposed to beneficial.q
