For all the amature boxers, how many days a week and how many hours do you guys train. I sometimes find it hard to balance school/training. Is three days a week of training enough in your opinion? Thanks guys

Five, sometimes six days per week, 2.5-3 hours per day.

Three days per week is considered the minimum by my trainer if you want to compete.

my trainer's expectations of me if i want him to corner me at golden gloves is run 3miles a day 6-7 days a week, and be in the gym 5-6 days a week. and im in school. i make this quota some weeks, others i dont.

6:00am-2:30pm = Work

5:30-7:30 = Training (Boxing)

8:00-9:00 = Karate

4:10-9:45 = School (Thursdays)

The time in between is my commute from one place to another.

I run, do cardio and study on weekends. Once in a while i find time to fcuk. LOL.

I have a jammed packed day; all day, everyday with one day of rest within the week....then i think to myself what else would i be doing?

I can only go monday and wednesday right now, usually its monday wednesday thursday (those are the days our gym is open...weird days I know). I try to spar each time Im at the gym since its only open on those days and I'll stay for 2-3 hours, usually two. I make up for the crappy gym hours by shadowboxing for 5 rounds first thing when I wake up.

mon-(morning shadowboxing, pushups/pullups, roadwork)
evening gym, abs
tue-(morning shadowboxing, anaerobic power circuits) evening home skill session
wed=same as monday, thur=same as tue, fri=same as mon except skills at home

on tuesdays and thursdays I have my college cardio class and we usually go out and run/bike/or whatever but we have to keep to the criterion for the day which is usually pretty slow paced stuff so its more like a recovery run or whatever you want to call it.

Three days a week is enough, you can try to do some running or other cardio in your own time as well.

You should do your roadwork in the morning so you have fresh legs in the ring. Proper recovery is just as important as proper training. You could train like an idiot but fully recover all the time and make better gains then somebody who did all the right things but never allows himself to recover.
