More is not better for natural lifters.

More time in the gym is NOT better for natural lifters. Science reveals that in general, an hour of heavy weight training per training day is optimal. For some trainees, up to 90 minutes of training is acceeptable.

But as a beginner, and until you learn the lifts and your body, there is no reason to train more then one hour each day.

Steroid using trainees have artificially elevated testosterone levels. They can train longer, without penalty, and recover faster.

As a natural, overtraining can lead to a catabolic - counterproductive state.

Get in, do your workout, and get out. You do NOT need to spend 2 to 3 hours in the gym each day.
