Rest while training is counter productive. I suggest resting after training.

Rest is recovery, where your body comes back stronger from what you put it through in training. Without it, you're just burning yourself out without getting the returns.

Depends on how much time you have to spend on work, school etc.

If your in college and you decide to take 1 or 2 years longer because you want to focus on boxing and you dont work.. well then you can do 9 - 12 1-2 hour workouts a week I think. (running, weights, boxing). All the other time you can sleep and eat healthy and go to school now and then.

If you not in that position you have to train less. Maybe just train 3 times a week. Boxing training got priority tough.

So yeah rest is important. But there is a saying: "He who fears doing to much always does to little".

Try training 7 days a week and you will fail. Resting is when your body improves

Not necessarily true. You can train 7 days a week, depends on how you train.

Let's say you're training fairly intensely for boxing, which is what guys on here should be doing really.
