    Smile workout duration for adults

    Dear Gents,

    I am 55. Good but average workout experience at my 20s and 30s then a break for many years. Restarted 3 years ago. My BMI is 25,4. Body fat 16%, visceral fat 12.8.

    Cardio exercises 3 weeks per week at a moderate level. Duration 30 minutes.

    2 times per week muscle building sessions: shoulder/chest/legs and back&arms. The duration of each session is 90 min inclusive of warm up 10 min and cool off 10 min.

    Is that OK for my age and experience?

    I heard the most efficient duration should be no more than 60 minutes warm up and cool off inclusive.

    What do you think from your experience?

    Thanks and cheers

    most efficient for what?

    workout duration doesn't matter as much compared to what exercises, what intensity and how much volume you are doing during that workout duration

    There is no time limit - what matters is how much hard work you do during the session and over the course of weeks / months.

    There is a balance to be struck between doing too little and achieving poor results - and doing too much and becoming too fatigued to continue. The first is a very very common issue, the second much less so.

    The novice routines we have in the sticky threads at the top of the page take a good guess at how much work you need to do. Everyone is a little different of course but one of those would be a good starting point

    While 45 minutes may keep the OP "fit", there is no reason to limit his workout to an arbitrary time.

    If you feel good after such a training, then why not? So time is not redundant.

    overhead press 100 kgx1, 82,5 kg 4 sets х 5 reps
    deadlift 230 kgx1, 200 kgx4, 190 kg 3 sets x 5 reps
    raw squat 180 kgx1, 150 kg 5x5
    chin-ups +25 kg x10 reps

    Thanks for your time answering. Got some useful stuff. Basically, what I concluded is:

    - no time limit unless health limit
    - however, the age may add some limitations
    - no records ambitions
    - in general, a workout with moderate weight of duration of 45 minutes net plus some time for mandatory warm up and cool off

    Is it something that can be defined as a golden rule?

    Best and cheers

    Better to use a ready made routine as I mentioned above - it will almost certainly be better that something you put together yourself.

    This question and many others you didn't yet know existed will be answered by doing that. Designing routines is not just a few simple rules, its takes experience and knowledge.

    55 is not an age to be concerned. I’m 53 and I push hard in the gym. I work till I’m thru the program. Could be an hour , or more or less. My workouts are more intense then when i was younger. Do not buy into the “I’m old” stuff.
