More time equal more gains
 
Does More Time In The Gym Yield More Bodybuilding Gains? What do you think of this question? I do not think that it is true. You can work out and work out but if you are not doing the right exercises or lifting enough or have proper form you are doing it for nothing.

Very simple answer: No!


However, whether more time in the gym yields more gains depends on how much time a person is spending there (working out, not socialising) to start with; if a person is only there for 10 minutes, then spending more time in the gym would yield more gains.

Its what you do with that time in my opinion. I could probably maintain what I have and maybe get stronger with 20 minutes per session, but like Babs said, there has to be a minimum level somewhere. On the other extreme, a 3 hour session isn't likely to be fruitful after the first 60-90 minutes, unless its something like events training with lots of breaks in between.

My rule...if you can't destroy yourself in an hour, you have no business training longer.

Haha this ^^^. If you aren't fried in an hour you need to rethink your training.

I would think that quality would be better than quantity any day.

No it does not. More time may seem like a good idea but in reality if you are struggling with the moves just to get more time in, then you are not really helping your body any.

Well, yes and no.

At least for a guy/girl just starting out lifting as often as possible while still remaining fresh is usually the best option. Lifting weights is a skill as much as it is about brute strength, and that skill can be improved upon by more practice.

However only perfect practice makes perfect, as the saying goes.
