    As a general rule you'll need more volume over time to continue to get strength gains. This is the main principle that Sheiko uses in his training.
    Because of this, it means that if you can get results in 30 minutes- do it. When you can't then increase the volume in the workout and it will start to take longer

    You should also be doing cardio to ensure that you can keep up the pace as eventually you're going to run out of time. I like doing 10 minute walks after each meal

    So to answer your question, it depends on your history, your work capacity and you're strength level.

    At a beginner lever (that's where you are) if you are in the gym any longer than 45 minutes you are wasting time.

    There are lots of ways for a powerlifter to “train” and the longer the better IMO, training for that one lift needs attention to detail.

    on the other hand the bench is a conundrum and too much time spent on this can cause problems for most trainees.
    this is one exercise where you really need to find ways of strengthening the triceps at the same time spending equal time strengthening the whole back safely while minimizing movement around the shoulders.

    lifting weights is mainly an activity where you’re finding what works for yourself.

    then of course there are freaks that where it ( like most sports) just comes naturally.

    So, the rub is; it’s and individual thing, spend as much time training as need to master the movement/s give yourself enough recovery time between workouts and training.

    there is no magical mystery tour here.

    Pilates is teaching me how to activate my core, hamstring and glutes... i think when i am doing deadlifts my back is doing too much of the work... and getting sore.

    Would recording my workouts help with form? I think deadlifts is my worst lift...

    Where are you located?

    the best thing would be to see a proper coach.

    Yeah. I am seeing a power lifting coach. It seems that the aussie power lifting community is quite small.

    Maybe i should be emailing my coach instead of posting on forums for advice.

    Who is this coach?

    may as well give the dude a plug, or would you prefer to stay anonymous for trolling purposes ??
