My training now consists of 5 heavy singles and 5x5 of same exercise which takes me anywhere from 40-55 minutes depending on the exercise and includes warm up sets. I do core work after and some cardio but I am keeping the main weights session under and hour for now. As the weight gets heavier, it may get as high as 75 minutes I reckon once PR territory comes into view.
I follow a very loose "lean gains" eating style. Look it up. Its a style of intermitten fasting with 16 hour fast and 8 hour feeding. I could eat more times during the 8 hours, but i experimented a lot with it and i do fine the way i am now. I eat around 1:00 and then eat post workout- 9:00 ish. I eat BIG both times. I had great success with it when i was cutting weight earlier this year. I dropped a solid 10 lb with it. I still follow it loosely, but i have been putting on weight lately. My strength is skyrocketing, and i've been eating even bigger with tons of carbs etc to make sure it continues. I'll cut later
I follow it now more for convienence than anything. I only think about food twice a day. Less stress
and its actually WAY easier for me to control weight, etc because it is only 2 meals. Cut carbs on earlier meal, lose weight! Eat more post workout, get stronger and recover faster.
