    So now that school started once again, I have personal weights for my first hour. :bowdown: We get about 45 minutes to work out (more like I get 45 mins to work out lol because everyone just sits around) and I rarely get all the way through my routine. On days that I dont finish my routine, is it alright If I got to my gym after school and finish the workout/continue it?

    why not just sit around or do cardio during your 45min period and do the whole lift after school

    Beacause I took weights for a reason. Also, sometimes I get my workout done on those days we go into the weight room right away (gives me about 55 min).

    All Im simply asking is if doing 3-5 excercises after school is worth it?

    if you are going to work out after school anyways, i would split the workout up by bodypart...sort of like arnold's advance routine. or do cardio in the morning and weights in the afternoon,

    No I sometimes finish my workout, which is about 5-6 excercises. Im doing a lot of 5x5 and 4x6 sets.

    You could try decreasing time in between sets, though that's not generally recommended I suppose. You might need that extra time to rest.

    There's no way I can get 3-4 workouts @ 5x5 done in 45 minutes. My squat workout alone will sometimes go above 45 minutes ( I take long breaks on heavy day )

    edit: so my suggestion would be cardio during 45 min and lift after

    Nothing wrong with going twice per day... so long as you control overall volume.
