It depends on how hard your hitting it. i usually go about an 1.5 hours some weights, some cardio, and some bsing. If your hitting more then one muslce group i like to try to do three exercises for each part im hitting sometimes more. Usually do one real heavy excersise and then a few auxillary. I like to superset so I can get done pretty quick.

well by the end of said muscle group, i'm shaking. tore the muscles and did what i came to do. then move on to the next muscle group which hasn't been touched yet. and go hard with that. it's a routine going after work, if something comes and stirs up my routine it's hard to go to the gym after because i get lazy. the gym is on the way home from work, so i stop in, if i get detoured into another route. i'll usually just snuff it off until next day. i'm terrible for that. haha

my main muscle group takes about an hour, then i go onto abs and work on those for about 30 mins. one thing that's on my mind though, everyone has abs, it's just under all that fat. how do you get rid of that fat? will ab workouts contribute to it? currently i do knee raises, torsoe twists with a medicine ball sitting down (if that makes sense), and i do oblique crunches.

This is definitely a difficulty. If your shoulders are just a tiny bit injured it limits so much of your work with weights

Now i'm trying to work out my abs 3-4 times a week and i'm going from an hour workout to almost an hour and 45 mins. I wanna stay longer but i get hungry and just leave haha (i workout after work).

i've been going since the summer time, and thus far, i've seen some improvement, my chest has gotten bigger and my tricepts have grown a bunch. but i'm considering staying at the gym for 2 hours now just so i can work on a 2nd group of muscles. an hour for 1 group may seem like alot of time already but just seeing what you guy's routines are

my routine when i work out:

1st set: start off with the heaviest i can do, 8 reps, then immediate go down a notch, usually 10 pounds lighter, do 8 reps, then go down 1 more notch, and pump out 8-15 reps depending how light the weight is.
2nd set: as heavy as i can 8 reps.
3rd set: repeat.
I've even heard that very short, ie 30min sessions are better for gaining. You put more energy into pushing my heavier weights, low reps and lots of failure

the hardest muscle set i'm dealing with right now are the biceps. i need a spot for that muscle set. so difficult to maintain good form while curling dumbbells. lots of failure there...

Grab one of those ez curl bars and put your back up against the wall. It'll prevent you from swinging your arms and back.

those are okay. i have good form with that. it's the single dumbbells that make me swing my back. i have such difficulty with 17.5lbs. but i can ez curl and straight bar curl 50 lbs no problem.

try using the incline bench like this: Incline Bench Dumbbell Bicep Curls - Free Weight Bicep Exercise

you can use dumbells on a preacher bench as well.

edit: and just as an FYI - lifting dumbells is always going to be harder than lifting a barbell. For instance I can benchpress (barbell) 225lbs x 8. Can only press 210 x 8 with dumbells.

i'm assuming with the bar it helps you stabilize a bit whereas the dumbell it's all freemotion so you have to engage your core and balance which takes away from being able to give off full strenght?

Yea shoulder problems suck for lifting. My warm ups are about 20 mins which consists of alot of shoulder stretches warm up sets for strengthing your rotator cuff. Helps me alot. As long as there is no underlying damage glucosamine chondroitin Pills help with keeping joints healthy too. newnew just be careful not to over train any muscle group. Thats when you get hurt and it also hurts your gains. Also on the ab thing Cardio thats how you get abs and also why i dont have them.
