Good thread for sure. The only time I spend about 2 or 3 hours in the gym is when I'm training legs. And that's usually because of the longer rest times in between sets when doing squats and leg presses. I don't think my thighs and calves would ever respond if I only did a 45 minute workout. No way.

if its a regular workout i usually do 1-3 mins for small muscles and 3-5 mins for large muscles. but if im doing intensity or some other kind of workout, its less. like right now im doing 90 secs rest for all muscles.
