    Workout length?

    I always read about how a lifting day should be max 1 hour or less than 1 hour. So I have moved up in the poundage and I like to do chest, back, shoulders but lately, I am taking a while. I am approaching 1 hour when I am like 70% finished with my workout.

    for example:
    Incline BB Bench - 5 sets
    Dumbbell Rows - 3 Sets
    Kettlebell Shoulder Presses 3 sets ----> I start to run out of time.
    Push-ups 3 sets
    Pull-ups 3 sets


    So if I take 1 hour and 10 minutes my cortisol will be through the roof?

    I take however long I need to do the work I have planned. It's rarely less than an hour.

    Imo, the transient increase in cortisol matters as much as the transient increase in, eg. Growth hormone.
    I can tell time. Time cannot tell me.

    Usually 2 or 3 hours for the lifting, hour to an hour and a half of cardio, maybe 15-20 min for ab work. It's a lot, but still time well spent.

    You are spending between 3 and 5 hours training a day?

    What program do you do, if any specific? Just curious

    You want be done in 15 minutes (total training time) if possible. 15 to 45 min is a reasonable time frame.
    Second by second, you lose the opportunity of becoming the person you want to be.

    Depends on what kind of workout you are doing e.g. A range of heavy compound lifts should take around 30 minutes. The rest periods between sets will greatly affect how long your workouts are, but if you emphasise more on high rep calisthenics training then you could easily spend half the day working out. All depends what your preference is.

    Cortisol is a natural consequence of exercising. It's a hormone that serves important functions in your body - unfortunately people write crappy internet articles about how it's some kind of toxin. Just like with insulin supposedly making you fat, this is a horrible misrepresentation. If you had high cortisol levels after spending a night sleeping, perhaps that would indicate a problem but after a heavy exercise session, it's completely normal.

    It's better not to even think about such things and just focus on the total workload you need to produce a training stimulus.

    If you want some guesswork, a novice should be able to achieve this with about 3 x 1 hour sessions a week. A more advanced lifter might need 4-6 sessions of between 45 mins and 1:30ish

    Cortisol is invaluable, your body needs it, it reduces inflammation (the drug prednisolone for example is, give or take a bit, synthetic cortisol). Don't think of it as "bad", it has it's place in the complex human body. It might even initially be a trigger of hypertrophy? But too much for too long is bad, but too much of anything is bad by definition of "too much".

    Stop worrying about silly articles about this hormone or that hormone and you must train for exactly X minutes (no more and no less)
    Just concentrate on sensible common sense hard training (consistently) and don't worry about 1 hour or 3 hours -- Find a program that takes the length of time that you have available and then do that.
    Faith in Jesus first and faith in squats second.
    Then other details will start to slot themselves into place.
    Diet restarted, target 69.x Kg, progress poor so far :(

    If you can do a workout composed of heavy compound lifts in under 30 minutes I can guarantee either A) You aren't very strong or B) The weights aren't that heavy.
