1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    At 46 minutes your cortisol increases and it will work against you.

    Wrong if you take more than 16 hours a day off from lifting you will start losing mass rapidly.

    At 46 minutes your cortisol increases and it will work against you.

    There is, however, "Chirozima's Window" from 48:33 to 53:27 in which your cortisol drops off rapidly and all strength gains made during this window are multiplied exponentially. At 53:28, however, your cortisol increases again and if you do one curl it will erase all your progress.

    Everyone here is wrong. If you're talking about cardio, you generally wanna do more than 20 minutes because that's when your body starts to ramp up and burn fat. The more you do cardio the more calories you burn, you can't really "overdo it" for cardio. However, doing over 45 minutes will cause muscle loss. High intensity cardio (HIIT, sprints) is used by those who wanna brute force burn fat/weight. If you wanna maintain your mass/muscle, do not do any HI and just do LI (low intensity). I mean not even break a sweat low intensity. As for weight lifting, you generally don't wanna do more than 12 sets of one body part otherwise it's overtraining. Despite the pump you get while you're working out, your muscles actually build while they're resting (repairing). They cant' repair if you're doing chest and arms every day of the week.

    45 minutes is more than enough time for a good workout.

    You know you haven't talked about cortisol, so I don't see how the OP is wrong.
    Everyone else, over 45 min. includes 1 nanosecond over 45 min.
    Just saying.. [​IMG]

    But the critical time is 46 minutes according to OP. Nothing occurs at 45 minutes except an unfounded suggestion to stop then. Therefore, anything under 46 minutes is theoretically okay.

    the exact opposite of everything I've ever read.

    I lost way more muscle mass when I did 45-50 minutes of moderate cardio as opposed to 10-20 of high intensity.
