imo it comes down to how much you want it if you wonder if enuff is enuff it proly isnt. to be honest. when i tryed ameture boxing i put in 2 3-4 hour sessions daily for years before i was ready. but that was me. and it also depends on how you train

Personally, I trust my trainers. If they want me to fight and think I'm good to go then I'm with them 100% and I'll give it 100%. I'm always honest and straightforward with them so they know mentally where I stand. If I don't feel ready, then I'll tell them my technique needs polishing or my cardio isn't up to par, or whatever. Your trainer is the only one that can say whether or not you're good to go. It is important as a trainer to know your student, and it is important as a student to trust your trainer (provided he never gives you reason otherwise)

3 is enough, but you will have to decide if you want to go full time or stay as you are sometime in the future.

Ultimately depends on your boxing ability. You could train almost everyday and still lose almost every sparring session you have..

lmao i do 4 for mma =) like every says its all on dedication and how serious u take it, some people are lucky and are very talented others like me have to bust their ass to get decent.

just in stand up i have been dedicating the last 2-3 years to it so i guess you can call me a gym rat ahaha

but if your doing ama boxing 3 days a week 2-3 hours and at least 15 rounds of sparing a week with a 6 week training regiment should be fine.

btw how old are u?


^^

and just because you lose doesnt make you a bad boxer and/or fighter, i loose alot of my sparing sessions bc im the youngest in our fight team and we have very good fighters on our team, but im a different fighter when i step into a cage.

WOooo Hoooo my first post in the training section.....mostly just like reading the info but because I myself was an ametuer boxer for many years I thought I would put in my two cents.


3 times a week is plenty if you take the little time you have seriously. I only trained a couple of times a week and I had great success. Just make sure you work hard and go over the little stuff when you are bored or have free time. Just make sure you get time in for your cardio and you will be alright. It does depend on your natural ability though, striking has always came easy for me so I just got to the highest level I could and then it took less maintanace to keep my skills honed.

Props man I love boxing. Albiet I'm a bigger MMA fan but it truly is a great sport.

Good luck man!
