Usually I take an hour.
When I do upper body only complete the following within an hour.
bench (3 sets of 10)
leg lifts ( 3 sets of 15)
lat pulls (3 sets of 10)
bi cep curls (3 sets of 10)
takes me about 15 mins each exercise. Am I taking too long?

60 minutes tops 9 out of 10 times. Only problem is if the gym is packed and I have to wait for a bench (on Mondays LOL). Everybody wants to bench on Mondays. Never see them again until next Monday.
Everyone does chest on mondays At the gym, the pecdecks and bench always have lines.(my reason for buying a home gym)
From warmup to finish takes me between 30-60 minutes depending on the day

I work out because I have two daughters.....and one day they'll be teenagers.
Usually 45 - 60 minutes to do a HST full body routine consisting of about 16 sets. Time varies depending on the rep range being used. On the 15's, no less than an hour. On the 5's, no more than 45 mins.
Also I workout at home.

Everyone on this site knows that I train for at least 5 hours per session. I perform at least 50 sets per bodypart with little to no rest in between. This has made me huuuuuggeee!
Ok, not quite. I use low volume and usually train for 20 min-1.5 hours.
weights and cardio 2 hrs
just cardio days 1 to 1 1/2 hrs
