How Long Should a Workout Take?

John Grimek always recommended the kind of workouts we teach here at Dino Headquarters - and you can't argue with his results!

Hail to the Dinosaurs!

Three quick notes, and then we'll talk

1. The Dinosaur Files

The March issue of the world-famous
Dinosaur Files strength training news-
letter will be coming out sometime
very soon - probably later today -
and it's another great issue.

One of the feature articles covers Sig
Klein's training philosophy for older
men - and includes a terrific workout
that Klein followed back in the day.

I'll send an email as soon as we get
the links up. Be looking for it!

Jan and Feb issues, go here to grab

2.  Something for Older Dinos

Several years ago we did a great mini-course
on effective training for older Dinos --
with a brand new workout. It's available
in PDF with immediate electronic delivery:

4. How Long Should a Workout Take?

I get tons of emails from readers who want
to know how long a workout should take.

They've read about two, three, four and
even five hour workouts -- and about
'"champions" who supposedly train all
day long -- and they wonder how they
can fit all that training into their schedules.

Some trainees even give up and QUIT
because they think they have to train for
several hours in every workout, and they
don't know how they can do it.

It's frustrating, because trainees have been
facing this issue for over 50 years -- and
the answer has been out there for just as
long -- but most trainees still don't get

That's because the good information gets
lost in a sea of bad advice. Or nowadays,
in a cyber-sea of bad advice.

And that's why we all need to keep beating
the drum for sane, sensible, effective and
productive strength training and muscle

So let me do exactly that.

Fifty years ago, Bradley J. Steiner, Peary
Rader, Arthur Jones, and a small handful
of other writers told their readers:

1. Long workouts are not necessary.

2. Most trainees actually do better on
shorter workouts.

3. You can get a terrific, result producing
workout in just 45 to 60 minutes.

a. You even can do it in 30 minutes.

b. Or 20 minutes.

4. Of course, you need to make every
minute count.

a. You need to focus on QUALITY in your

b. Focus on the best exercises -- and follow
the best set/rep systems.

c. Train with concentration and focus.

5. Train for strength. Always try to get
stronger. Always work on improving your
performance from workout to workout.

My own workouts usually take 50 to 75
minutes. Most of them clock in at right
around one hour.

That's one hour, three times a week.

And it works great.

Give it a try, and see what happens!

As always, thanks for reading and have
a great day. If you train today, make it
a good one!

Files . . . . you're gonna like it.
