Before you start to overtrain? I was going through different posts in the forums and someone suggested that training should only last 30-45 min. Is this true? My weight training time usually last 30-45 min but then i do cardio for 40 min then after that i might work on my abs then stretch for 10 mins, So in total i'm in the gym for at least 2 hours. Is that to long? Will i eventually overtrain? Any advice is appreciated! Thanks

Try to keep it under 60 minutes,after that cortisol levels start to rise.I think thats the word.

Your good to go. You shouldn't overtrain with your current routine.
If you're worried about overtraining, take a few days off every couple of months or reduce your volume for a week.

It's an individual thing, depends on what you are doing, how INTENSE the training is, age, sex, etc..............

After about an hour and a half testosterone levels will decrease. Try to keep it under an hour.
If you don;t feel motivated to train you are probably overtraining. You be the judge. Everyone is different.
