The weight-training sweet-spot

Never train more than 60-90 minutes (this doesn’t include a warm-up, or a cool-down) at a time. Excessing training negatively affects hormones and increases the risk of getting sick. Listen to your body. If you feel too tired to go on after a three minute break, after 30-45 minutes of exercise, cool-down and call it a day. You will work up to longer training periods, over time, if consistent, when your body has adapted. If you’re in the gym for two hours or more at a time and are not seeing results, this is why.
