60 Minutes, Over and Out?

i read somewhere( some guy’s program, where else) that 60 minutes is the exact time for testosterone peaking in the body and after that body starts releasing cortisol… so be done within 60 minutes or head out with what you’ve done within the hour coz post 60 mins we go catabolic ( without juice, ofcourse)
any views??

This has been discussed a few different times, most recently here:

Bottom-line is that the clock shouldn’t be the priority. Getting an efficient and effective workout should be. If a workout takes 45, 63, 91, or 130 minutes, don’t stress as long as it’s working.

On a related note, workout nutrition is always important but it’s arguably more important the longer your training sessions get.

^ This. I don’t know of anyone addressing peri-workout nutrients in an intelligent manner, who failed to make progress because they trained too long. I’ve always said that as my attention to nutrition got better, the volume of my training also increased, and my ability to recover and make continual gains was unhindered.

Yes, if you go along the entire spectrum of the population it’s true that you can potentially find someone whose recovery ability is so poor that they still must limit their overall volume despite doing “everything else” optimally, but for everyone else, I wouldn’t sweat it.

and that’s all i needed to hear bros , thanks a lot!!

There’s no such reason as overtraining, Only undereating…
Within reason

False. There are people who were well fed but overtrained.

There is no such thing as over training, only under recovery…
