comment Is it really important to restrict the workout to 45 minutes?
Yes indeed "things" help in that respect! :-) But one can still generally do much more than popular opinion might suggest au natural.

comment Knee pain when squatting
I don't want to take away from the main question, but just wanted to mention that knee past toes is not necessarily poor form (common myth among non-lifting PT types) - in fact, it's probably necessary for good form! Otherwise, hard to keep balance & the right structure with load bearing over the center of your foot. Just try to squat below parallel with your toes (and therefore knees) against a wall!

comment Is it really important to restrict the workout to 45 minutes?
Hmm, I'm not familiar with Madcow, and while I've read (and very much appreciate) SS, I was already past the applicable novice phase when I ran across it. FWIW, my typical workouts are generally 90+ minutes (3-6 minutes rest between sets) 5-6 days per week, and no that doesn't hinder progress (quite the contrary) as long as I eat and sleep well!
