how long is your average workout?

the reason i ask is i began training (18 months ago) by doing very high volume workouts which took 2-2 an a half hours (inc 30 mins cardio) after 14 months i stopped making gains and switched to hard, heavy, intense workouts with 30-60 secs rest (depending on exercise) in between sets. now a typical workout is around 1 hr 15 mins (inc cardio) thus its taking me only half the time (about 45mins) to train 1 major bodypart. (this is training 6 times per week)

i am seeing gains from this approach and im aching like hell the next day, but i dont feel tired after workouts and i feel....guilty....going home after just over an hour.

should i add volume to my high intensity workouts?

but most importantly how long do you guys train for?

    Decide what work needs to be done in a session, and in what manner you're going to do it ,then let the session time take care of itself!

    Personally I think this testicle tenderness is due to my recent return to AM cardio. I do it naked on a recumbent bike and my gonads tend to flop about.

    40 mins to an hour depending on what I'm training and how many of us. Prefer swift training with no @rsing around so if more than 3 supersets are a must. I hate hanging around.

    On average just over an hour. However, I do a mad stretching regime for my legs, which takes about 20 minutes. Then if I go on the heavy bag as well I would be in the gym for just over two hours.
