    You should train about 45 mins to an hour a day, 2 hours is very much overtraining.
    People who go around pretending to know everything are annoying those of us who really do.

    after like 60 mins of working out in a day your body would release cortisol and basically you're taking two steps forwards and one steps back. ur muscle can't take the strain and have already gone catabolic
    My distasteful stats:
    Arms R 12" L 11.75" Chest 34"
    56kg/123 pounds 1.65m/5'5''
    19 y'old

    Been bodybuilding since Nov 2002
    Weight before bodybuilding: 48kg

    Learnt everything from IGF-1 to ATP in 3months(and still learning!)
    Grab the knowledge, but don't forget to apply it.

    A day?
    You're overtraining a la BIGTIME
    Don't train every day,and if you train keep it under 1 hour.45 mins is perfect (excl. warmup and 2 times of stretchin.)

    Also you're weight is fine.I currently weigh 71 kg at age 16,im bulking and trying to get 80 sometime soon.
    Better to be thought of as a fool then to speak up and remove all doubt.

    mon - chest/bi
    tues - back
    wed- legs
    thurs - shoulders
    fri - triceps/traps

    if you're trainign 3x a day(e.g., on a full-body routine), about 55-60minutes.

    if you're training 1muscle/day, stick with 35-40
