    Depends on the day. Today I had three different workouts at about 5-10 minutes each, full body, the last one followed by delicious roasted chicken and sweet potatoes!

    Most of the time, I just do once a day for about 10-15 minutes.

    When I lift (SL5x5) it takes me over an hour, but that's because I'm at the point of needing 3-5 minutes rest in between sets. Most other workouts (bodyweight, sprints, etc) take far far less time, probably closer to half an hour.

    Its nuts but its conventional wisdom at its finest. The fitness industry pushes the more is better mantra and almost everyone believes it. Even here. I've done that too, but many years ago. 2 hours in the gym!?!?! LOL How many days a week? 5-6?? LMFAO

    Are you doing multiple main lifts in a session or something? I have to confess that I'm not all that familiar with SL. I'm doing 531 and even with longer rests between working sets, I still get done my main lift and assistance work in 30-45 minutes. Spending over an hour on a lifting workout seems excessive.

    It's a book by Stuart McRobert about gaining strength/muscle. It's full of great information and I find it very motivating. Everyone that lifts weights should read this book. Honestly, I try to read it once a year. In fact, I'm going to start re-reading it tonight!

If I put you through my workout and you tried to carry it on for even 30 minutes you would leave the gym in an ambulance.
    Then what is the answer? Already tried 6000 calories a day..

    I really hate to go to the gym. I could spend 2-4 hours in my dance studio, several hours walking or hiking outside, once in awhile biking with slow pace, an hour or so for Pilates. I do sweat but not tired at all when I do anything under 2 hours. I do these activities because I really like them and they seem to treat me well in return. I wish I have more time and sunshine in the day for fun outside activities. It's rare in Seattle, WA area.
