35-45 mins. Tops. 45 only happens if I'm bored and add in some bicep/tricep isolation exercises.
Gained 40lbs in about 11 months doing this. ~50% of it lean.
Bench went from 90x10-175lbsx10 ohp went from 65lbsx5 - 125x5 pendlay row from 85x5 - 165x5 pullups from 0x0 - 5 reps w/ 50 pounds added deads from 200x3 - 300x3 squat from ~115x5 - 200x10 (not much legs due to serious knee problems over the last few year)
when i have time i can spend up to 3 hours. 90 min on strength training, 30 minutes on some met con/core shit, 60 min slow steady state cardio/foam roll/ stretch. Otherwise, 90 min tops. I honestly enjoy exercising.
It took me about 3 months to get 10 reps for 3 sets on pullups. After that I started doing weighted pullups, found the weight I could do 3x5 with and added 2.5lbs every session I hit 3x5. Every time I tried to add 5 or more pounds I'd stall out, so I've been consistently just adding 2.5lbs every workout.
Been doing like, Chest day, back day, off, chest day, back day, off. Would be doing chest, back, legs off but haven't been hitting those because of my knee surgeries.
>>35529555 >Fuck off. You try and stuff 6 different pulls at 5x10 @ 95% 10RM AND pull ups AND ab work in under 1.5 hours. Getting pretty defensive there, bud. Maybe you should tone down the volume... you'll make more gains.
>>35529405 usually about 2 hours, I take long breaks for my main lifts 5-7 mins and do 2 each workout for 5 working sets. Then I'm usaully so amped that I fuck around with a bunch of mid weight exercises
>>35529628 >You can do more than 3 3x5 compounds without isolation work I never mentioned high volume in regards to compound lifts or isolation solely. I'm talking total volume which would include both.
>>35529739 I was also referring to overall volume. Obviously there's a dropping off point, but more than ninety minutes isn't bad in the slightest. That's especially true since actual time taken and amount of volume done aren't the same thing. Sometimes I can knock out a workout in an hour if I feel really fresh, and other times I can take upward of two and a half hours if I'm hungover or sleeping like shit. The volume never changed, just the rest periods. Only fucking beginners think that because they can't handle that load yet.
It should be longer since you're really supposed to rest for 3-5mins between sets. I can't be bothered to wait that long or pace about the gym like some guys do. Supersets are broscience but I usually only give myself 30sec-1min rest between sets.
Pierce 10-5-3-Peak. Kind of similar periodization, but with the 10 rep conditioning phase and more exercise selection. This is actually my first cycle and I am loving it so far. We'll see how I feel in a few weeks, though.
>>35529790 >The volume never changed, just the rest periods. So you are essentially repeating the same thing as me. What exactly are you disagreeing with me on? Being slow doesn't change anything as long as the volume remains the same.
>>35529920 >implying everyone is the same You were probably a fat fuck. Not OP but I started out at 120 lbs skelly and it took me at least a year and a half to even hit that. Stop using yourself as anecdotal evidence, it doesn't apply and no one cares.
30 minutes, not entirely accurate as I workout at home, and do sets throughout the day, but hte main workout 30 mins jut to get the compounds in, do little shit throughout the day. Do 10-15 mins of aerobic exercise on offdays. In pretty good shape, don't center my life around it like faggots here, because socially people already think I'm strong, and I'm not a faggot who cares about PR's in the gym. people lifting 400+ lbs is cool, but I suspect it's bad for joints in the long run.
I go for 1 or 2 hours. On my long days I lift for an hour, though I usually only do 5-6 lifts and some brief core stuff (I like to take my time while I lift and my gym is always empty so I'm never competing for equipment), and then I fight or an hour.
On my short days I just fight for an hour, which consists of my warm up and stretch, and then a mix of bag work, focus pads, and sparring.
>>35531276 Yeah. Was really into it, trying to get back into it after the last 13 months being plagued with knee a knee injury. Got surgery on both of them, just finishing up PT for the second one and I think that'll be it.
Honestly 2015 would've been a great year for me in terms of races but, whatever. Trying to slow-and-steady it with riding and hopefully go to my teams training camp this March.
>>35531681 Long distance multiple days in a row is always hard and fun lol
I love weightlifting and feeling strong doing every day shit, and the confidence you get from not being 140lbs skeleton. I also wanna hit 75lbs on pullups for reps before the training camp but not sure I'll see that happen lol, going to try to keep lifting until I either have to cut down more weight or it is misery when I'm riding a lot
Honestly though, there is something about riding that I love so much more than lifting, wanna go somewhere with it, but it's just a dream for now lol
It was hard at times but mostly fun, it was with my dad and my mate, through northern France in the summer, so beautiful weather (mostly), we did it two years in a row
That's cool, yeah obviously lifting is awesome (I did have a good routine the past couple years but have slacked off in the last six months... should probably get back to the gym), I just thought extra mass might pose a problem for cycling. But hey if you're planning to do it I should probably try it too - cycling and bulking. I am literally 140 lbs myself at the moment (64 kgs, so bang on)... do definitely wanna get a bit bigger than that.
