5x5 Time taken

Ive been using 5x5 for over a month now and love it, its not exactly frankies routine:

Deads = 5x5
DB Rows = 5x5
Dips = 5x5
2x per week and Hammer curls (2 sets) on one of the training days.

Only thing is that the workout takes an hour, is that usual or am i training at a pace too slow?

I don't have a problem with it but the deadlifts seem to take about 30 mins of the time.

    Tough call tbh some people say train in 45 mins but if i do deads, sumos, rows and shrugs at 8 rep warm up 6 rep heavyer warm up and then 3x5 heavy it will take me 50 mins to an hour if i train with a partner it takes about the same. If i dont get a couple of mins rest between sets i just cant produce the intensity
