    depends on your body composition initially... if you are skinny and trying to put on muscles - 30-45 minutes with basic complex exercises - and then go and eat and rest....
    if you got some extra weight - may be 1,5 - 2 hours... but
    for an average  person training  drug free would be 45mins-1,5hour, no longer

    great grayvitaliy
    I suppose best thing is 45-60 minutes for the trainers who do not doing bodybuilding as  full time

    In general, I recommend 45-75 minutes per weight-lifting workout, 4-5 days per week.  Especially in the offseason when lifting heavy and intensely, this is all the time you need to stress your muscles and CNS.  Spend the rest of your time eating, sleeping, and resting well in order to recover and grow muscle.
    During contest prep, you will likely be doing cardio which will be additional time in the gym.  This is okay.

    I like to hit the gym 4 times a week for 1 hour a time of intense workout. I wouldn't call myself a body builder, but i'm well built with a good body.
