    I say to my friend:

    I did 60 push ups, 50 sit ups, 15 pull ups in 1.5 minutes for each exercise.

    Is the above sentence okay?

    I'm trying to say I did had 1.5 minutes for each exercise and that's how many I did.

    "In" is wrong in that context. If you say you did all those exercises "in" 1.5 minutes, it means that was the total time you took to do all 125 exercises.

    I did 60 push ups, 50 sit ups and 15 pull ups. I took a minute and a half to do each set.
