I spend 2-3 hours (depending on the day/course) doing karate training 2-3 times a week.

I spend an hour on gymnastic strength training at home 2 times a week.

On one of my strength training days, I also spend half an hour working on flexibility.

:D

In my opinion, you are the only person who can answer this for yourself.
It depends what your goals are and how hard you are willing to push yourself.
My goals are strength and endurance based, I normally will not touch weight for more than 40-50minutes a workout, but will start with a 1/2 mile run, and end with 14 minutes of 45/15 intervals on treadmill or rowin machine!

In my opinion and experience training clients, no workout, in its entirety, should ever exceed an hour for just about any goal type. In terms of the high intensity exercise we seem to be talking about in the traditional workout style, More does not necessarily always equal More, as in more input does not always equal more output in terms of gains. Our inputs only make gains up to a certain maximum and, if we continue that same path past the optimum/maximum point, our inputs give us less and less gain.

As Pavel Tsatsouline, one of the premiere fitness and strength minds on the planet says in his book with Dan John "Easy Strength," "The more you push on the limits of your body, the more your body pushes back." You can talk to anyone who 'lives on the edge' with their fitness...Yeah they may look great, but look under the hood and you will find a shriveled up, miserable, over-trained human being. I find a program of 2 days of about 30 minutes of sprints or metabolic work (even as low as 15 minutes has proven effective), 4-5 days heavy, low rep strength training at about an hour with warmup, and as much low level aerobic activity as possible is premiere for all goal types.

I typically finish most of my kettlebell workouts in under 45 minutes, including warm-up and the stretching after. 

I take some long walks several times a week too,  usually about an hour or so, either with the dog around the neighborhood or in the nearby woods to do some scouting and just enjoy the sights.

Depends what you're training for, how you're training (weights, cardio etc.) and what you're goals are.   

Resistance Training Workouts:
  • 5 min light cardio
  • 5-10 min dynamic stretches
  • 20-50 minutes of lifting
  • 5-20 minutes of stretching/foam rolling
  • The shorter the workout, the faster the pace (between exercises) should be; your heart rate should spiking.  Longer workouts should be performed at a slower pace.

'Cardiovascular' workouts:
  • Sprints - 5-10 minute warm up (light job), Ten 30 yard hill sprints (Sprint up, walk back slowly, however long it takes), 5-10 minute cool down, 5-20 minutes of stretching.
  • Longer cardio (hikes, jogs, bike rides, etc.) - 5-15 minute warm up, pick a distance, go do it, 5-20 minutes stretching

Like I said, depends how you're training.  A lot of people on this forum don't do long aerobic/cardio workouts (bad for the joints, can be bad for muscle growth), but if you're a soccer player, you better be able to run for 90 straight minutes!  I've played tennis matches that have lasted well over 3 hours; you can't expect to last 3 hours if you've never trained for a 3 hour period.

So TL;DR, what are you training for?
