How long should a workout last?
Sadly the prevailing theory for some people is still the old 45 minutes or else theory.While there are a few studies done telling you that you should only workout for 45 minutes or else your muscle wasting hormones rise, those are faulty at based. Numerous factors play into hormone release and you can’t isolate a group and expect everyone to get those results. That theory is stupid.
Much of the common knowledge about workout length comes from old eastern European literature that showed the athletes trained for about 30 minutes multiple times per day. That had nothing to do with the training and more to do with the sports coaches wanting to govern their athletes lives.
My best advice is to tell you to head to the gym with a plan. Work the plan and if you still feel like you can train a little long and want do, then go for it.
My workouts last between 45-60 minutes depending on what bodypart I’m training and if I’m doing any extra aerobic activity.

Almost everyone that attempt to lose bodyfat yearns for cardio alternative conditioning drills. It’s why people are obsessed with UFC workouts, you almost never see a MMA training program that leaves you on the elliptical for 45 minutes. Traditional cardio is boring which is why I love finishing off my workouts with these conditioning drill alternatives especially TRX exercises. Traditional aerobic work has even become less hardcore. It’s actually a lazier response because you can just sit on a bike and pedal as slow as you want. Hey, at least you’re wearing a sweatsuit!

The immortals workout has gotten the same type of excitement and buzz around it as the 30 workout did years ago when that movie was released. Unlike 300, however, the actors in Immortals aren’t going to be as CGI influenced as the actors in 300 were.
