Question: “How long should workouts last?” (Probably not what you think)

That was a question I recently got from a student – about ‘Kettlebell Strong Program”’ – a classic double kettlebell training program .

He was shocked that Day 1 only took him 10 minutes. 

He also stated that it was still challenging, especially the last set.

The truth is, your workout length is dependent on:

[1]  Your time restrictions

[2]  Your current abilities

[3]  Your goals

And that’s really it.

Look, I know that sounds strange, and so “against the grain.”

But ask yourself this:

If you only had 3x 15 minute time frames to workout / train, would you really disregard them because you “read somewhere” or “thought” or “heard” that a “good workout” had to be at least 30, 60, or 90 minutes long?

Based on training people from all walks of life for the last 10+ years, the honest answer for many, if not most, is “yes.”

And that’s too bad.

Because you can accomplish a lot in a very little time, if you know how to structure a workout (training) program.

So remember, your workouts may not be as long as The Rock’s, Ah-nold’s, or your favorite bodybuilding magazine star from the 80’s or 90’s, but they don’t have to be.

Cause they’re not you, and you’re not [on drugs] like them.

Plus, you work for a living.

You can get a “great workout” in however long you need, when you structure your program according to your goals.

And don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
