    It depends on your particular 4 day split. The lower body day could be a 4x5 SQ and 1x5 DL. So, yes definitely under an hour. The Upper Body day could be a 5x5 BP, 4x3 PR and 2 sets of accessory movements, so that might be a bit harder. But even then there are things you can do: i.e., superset the accessory.

    I donít have a second bar, but I have a set of dumbbells. I know itís not ideal, but would dumbbells work to warm up the press or bench press in this situation?

    Potentially yes. You could do the chins right after each of the volume 5x5 for example and for some people 4x5 is enough volume to keep them chugging along. That will also save time.

    For the early sets yes, but as you get closer to the work set weight you really need to be doing the actual lift.

    That's what I was thinking. I'm still in the first stages of the novice program, so I am not lifting heavy yet. For example, I'm still under 100 lbs on the press, so 3 warm up sets with 25 lb dumbbells between squat work sets would be an option. Time hasn't been an issue, but it's good to know that I have options if need be.

    My workouts have always been 2 hours, sometimes more if I am particularly gassed or it's very hot. I video myself on most of the squat sets and review during the workout. I'm also generous on my squat rest times.
