    How Many Hours

    How Many hours do you guys spend at the gym on a workout day?

    I usualy get everything done in 50-55minutes but im thinking I might need to spend more time there. However, when I working on Abs I usualy just spend 30minutes.

    Depends, weights no more than an hour.

    You spend 30 minutes on just abs????

    Just lifting, about 45 minutes - an hour depending on the day.

    Second cardio session if I have one: half an hour or so.

    I usually hit the weight for about an hour and stretch at the end for another 15 minutes. I've done resistance training protocols where I finished in about 40 minutes though. I usually don't do cardio for any longer than 20-30 minutes.

    just beacuse you arent in the gym a long time doesnt mean that you are doing something wrong or that you should be in longer to get gains. It matters how intense you are when you are lifting. I can only sustain about 30-50 minutes of hard lifts and staying focused. 10-15 mins warm up cardio and sometimes a light strech after.. 30 mins on abs does seem a bit much..

    I watched the clock today. I really warm up and at the end I really stretch out. My time in the gym is more towards 1.5hrs with all my warm up. But the real taxing part is about an hour.

    Normally, about 45 minutes. But I'm trying out a HIT style workout Archie recommended, and my wokouts are less then half that right now.

    What are you doing, BBing, PLing Oling?
    It's different for everyone, I know as an OLer I need and do spend 2 1/2-3 1/2 hours in the gym a day, 4-6 days a week providing my schedule is clear.
