    How Long Does It Take You to Workout?

    Primal Fuel
    Hey guys,

    I'm following a high-intensity strength training workout program. It only takes me 45 minutes to workout, but it's REALLY hard. I do supersets of 4 exercises (squats, dumb bell overhead presses, pullups, and burpees) with 1-2 minutes of rest in between.

    I'm adding more and more weight each we, so I do rest longer between supersets because it's so tiring, but I'm wondering how long you guys spend in the gym.

    Best,
    Raza

    It takes me an hour and a half. :/

    Partially because working out is a stress reliever so I make my stay at the gym as long as I can. My one concern is that this pushes me to overwork my body.

    Yeah, I can understand it being a stress reliever. What kind of stuff are you doing in the gym for that long? I guess it all depends on what you're doing.

    It takes me about 2 hours, but if you only focus on the basic lifts which is very effective 45 minutes sounds right. Though if it gets heavier you will have to rest longer

    I do 3-6 sets of bodyweight exercise about every day. I do them while I'm busy with other things around the house, so net time is maybe 5 to 10 minutes. No travel time, no waiting for equipment, no changing clothes, no shower needed.
