Around 15-24 rounds 3 times a week for top level pros.

Amateurs spar 4-6 rounds constantly.

Source?

24 rounds in a single session is ****ing madness, there's no way you could maintain intensity over that period of time.

I've got no problem with the 15.
15 makes sense, it's the 24 that sounds funky.

at what level are you competing? and how many rounds for what duration are you competing?

coming from the conditioning standpoint, i can knock off 1/3 (33%) before i start to flirt with detraining. so i take the variables of time & intensity and apply those. if you're an amateur competitor going 3rdx3min then i would suggest either:

1. 4rds x 3min on the regular, then knock it down to 3 x 3 two weeks prior to major competitions to peak

2. 3rds x 4 min on the regular, then knock it down to 3 x 3 two weeks prior to major competitions to peak

the issue with adding more rounds is that intensity will decrease as duration increases. that's a major problem i find here in the United States; boxers and coaches both so appreciate a slower, banging pro style so they push for more rounds. think about how you want to perform for competition and push yourself for 25% more. if you want to get more work in then get your coach a "counter" and push for a greater punch output every round ... for 4 rds.


if you happen to be recreational then go for as many rounds as you can + one. have fun. that's what you're there for, right?
