good point! However, given that you have limited time, you could go for a "whole body" approach, e.g. with kettlebell type exercises (see fitness.stackexchange.com/q/2001/3778) that work the posterior chain. Working on relatively small muscles such as the biceps is in a limited time context less efficient.

Do you really need to use weight? Perhaps a body weight program would be better given your time constraints.

comment During muscle loss, are muscle fibers destroyed or do they just shrink?
Adding some links to back up the answer would be great. Also, the answer is a bit too open. You state that you will lose.. and then add that you can build.. The answer is missing what is different when you age.

Working out for 90+120 minutes and not filling up with water and energy seems a bit on the destructive side

The answer is a bit on the short side. Also, it seems like the progress has stalled
