I go to the gym with 2 buddies 5 days a week (mon-friday). we usually stay close to 2hours each day but i've been told this is a bad idea / can strip muscle instead of gain it as im training for too long?
Anyway if someone could explain to me the cons of working out for so long that would be great.

When training athletes, it is impossible to wait until scientific research provides all of the necessary knowledge." Vladmir M. Zatsiorsky, Ph.D.
