Default Does Time Affect Training

When I used to workout I would take small rests and breaks and my workouts would last about 90 minutes. I started 24 mass last week and now everything seems to happen alot faster with alot less breaks and my workouts are complete in 50 minutes.

what are the pros and cons of training longer or shorter.

if you feel tht you cannot continue after 50 minutes, its most probably better than working out for 90 mins, i personally workout for 45-60 mins max depends if im doing abs on tht day or not. and i would not be able to go till my normal failure on the next exercise after that time, it all depends on the intensity and volume of your workouts that affects time. i used to train from 1 hr to 1.5 hrs but thats when i just started (bout 1 year ago) and didnt know anything so i've learned a lot through here and other resources and to tell you the truth i didnt see any results (major ones) until i droped the time on my workouts (made it more harder ofcourse) and took more rest days.

The longer you go the more cortisol and less GH you will release. Try to keep your workouts less than 1 hr.

My workouts generally last 1-1.5 hours, but that's because I train 2 bodyparts at a time, but my workouts never lasted more than an hour when I used to go everything individually. I've seen some growth from both approaches.

this varies person to person if i am in gym less then 30 mins i cant hit muscle hard enough as i can in two hours, small sets high intensity doesnt work that well for me it has to be high intensity high sets, supersets statics etc.... so this statement wouldnt apply to myself

I get great workouts done in 1 hour or less. I'm still very sore from a < 1hour workout I did monday.

You have to keep recovery in mind too. If you are working out for 2 hours and can't get to full recovery by the time the next workout comes around, back it off a bit.

I used to workout 1.5 - 2 hours everyday when I first started. but for the past three years I've worked out 45min - 1 hr and noticed that my results are better. I guess it's the intensity level and that you're not overtraining your muscles.
