>After an hour of exercise, your body becomes aware that you are going to extremes. It then attempts to conserve its fat reserves and begins to burn muscle for fuel.
Is this true? I regularly do more than an hour if I count cardio and lifting, should I lower how much I lift?

    Take as long as you need to for your workout. Too short and it's circuit training(cardio with weights). Too long and you are powersharting/fat or cooling down.
    Depending on the program, lifts, and intensity you could be doing 30 minute(why) to 2hour+ workouts.
    If you go too long you might want some caffeine or something to boost your energy.

      >2hour+ workouts.
      >If you go too long you might want some caffeine or something to boost your energy.

      Trash tier advice tbh. In truth, ideal workouts should aim to last no longer than 60-80 minutes. Once you get up past that hour mark you really start increasing cortisol levels and tanking your test. Then you're overtraining taking away from the next workout.

      >warm up: 10 minutes
      >1 core lift: 40 minutes bench/squat/deadlift/etc
      >accessories: 20 minutes

      Quality warmuo, busting ass on your main lift, and finishing up with a couple effective accessories. Dont need anymore than that

      Caffeine artificially increases your energy. Ideally, you dont want any type of stimulant at all. Making it a habit to only being able to fire when you're cranked on preworkout is a recipe for disaster long term

        If you do so little as SS:
        Warm-Ups for three exercises = 30min
        5min rest before each set = 35min
        If you take ~1min per set = 7min
        That's 75min so not too bad. But eventually you also incorporate chinups which will make each workout last longer than 90min and that will only grow if you incorporate assisting lifts.

        Stronglifts will make all of that last two hours though.

    Very misleading picture.
    Assuming you sleep 8 hours
    Work 8 hours
    30 mins to get to work
    30 mins to get home
    That leaves you with 7 hours.
    15 mins to arrive to gym
    1 hour to workout
    15 mins to get home
    That's 1.5 hours.
    1.5 hours is 21% of 7.

    You will spend 21% of all your free available time related to working out.

      That's assuming your employer counts lunch breaks as work hours, I lose another hour there.

      • 2 months ago

        I was trying to be very generous but yes, you are correct. 25% then.

    • 2 months ago

      If you are a slave to gnomish and goverment laboral serfdom then don't even bother working out. Focus on increasing your employer's profits or saving enough so you pay more taxes to the goverment. You are not gonna make it.

    Akchually, it's 4.166666666667% of your day. Get your facts right, chud.

    If you work and sleep for 16 hours then your "day" is actually 8 hours. There's probably a half hour to a full hour of total commute. That means that a 1hr workout is 14% of your day and you also have to dress, change stations, rest between sets, and change back to your street clothes so that workout is probably longer than one hour when you account for total time at the gym. Looking at 21-28% of your day.
