4 people wait around the ring 1 gets in and spars for 2 mins with 30 seconds rest in between against the other 3 one at a time, then we rotate whos in so that makes 6 rounds altogether and I spar 2-3 times a week

Default Re: amount of sparring

I usually do around 6 for myself, however, I am a good sparring partner since I have good stamina, am hard to hit, and make the person work. This means my trainer has often had me do 12 rounders working with different people. I've gone up to 15 once actually.

I misunderstood his comment to be fair. He said the most he sparred in a week was 4 times. But still, he's pretty new to boxing so I don't believe for a second he'll last 20 consecutive rounds.

I saw that too and gave him the benefit of the doubt that he meant 20 rounds in a week.

Default Re: amount of sparring

The reason I ask is because I don't get much sparring. I only have my coach to spar with and he's not supposed to be sparring because of his eye or something, but I can't hit for **** so it's ok.

But I'm getting ready for a tournament so I've been sparring at least 4-8 rounds a day for the last week. I was just curious how much people did on a regular basis.
