3 Hour Workouts!?!?!

3 Hour Workouts!?!?!

Apr 21, 2013

Do you consider the time at the gym social hour or time to get stronger? I always considered the time I spend at the gym as a time to get the most possible gains in size and strength. Well over the past year or so I have noticed a trend, I think people use the gym as social hour. And there is nothing wrong with that if that is what they want to do but me personally I don’t think they are getting to much out of their workouts. I even hear people on the radio and in they gym bragging they spent 3 to 4 hours per night at the gym and they don’t even break a sweat. Well speaking from somebody with 6 plus years of experience there is something real messed up with a statement like that.
In my own opinion I think somebody that trains without gear on or raw should have a max workout of 90 minutes and this is including 20 minutes of cardio. I do realize that working out in gear tends to take longer but the average gym rat does not even know what gear is. My typical workouts last about 50-60 minutes and on the rare occasion I decide to do cardio it takes no longer than 90 minutes.
I like to keep a fast pace tempo when working out taking not longer than 2-3 minutes between sets of bench or squats and no longer than 45-60 seconds between accessory work. When I keep my tempo up and move through my workout with intensity and speed I notice much bigger gains in strength and size, And its not like my workouts are easy I do 6-7 total workouts but I think a huge factor on how well the workout will work is the intensity and tempo.
Me personally I don’t want to spend all day at the gym, I want to get in and out. I know people make friends and things at the gym but I would rather sit on my couch and watch tv, listen to music, or socialize with friends rather than a hard, sweaty weight bench.
