So... you have already been training for 3 months? Is your current routine not working for you? What sort of routine are you going currently? The two sorts of training you mentioned (full body vs. split sessions) are generally for different phases of training. Some people like to do full body workouts their whole life, but I don't think I get enough fatigue for muscle growth that way anymore. But it's a good start for beginners.


Oh yeah almost forgot what is best length of time to spend in the gym to hit my goals.
Amount of time in the gym is infinitely less important than the quality of the workout. So I guess the short answer is "however long it takes to get through your routine". Technically you can get a good workout in 30 minutes, if you lift very hard and smart. An hour is about average, 1.5 if you are doing more volume training. 2 hours starts getting into excess (unless you are doing cardio afterward. Then it varies.)

The type of routine i am doing is full body workouts and is not working to well.think it might be the fact when doing fullbody workouts you can not stress the muscles as much than a split. Im going to change to a split soon. Have you got a good example of a routine that would be good for what i want to do "Bodybuilding" also Thanks for the Post.
