View Full Version : How often do you guys spar?

We spar every day at the gym. 4 times a week. Sometimes 5 times if we travel to another gym on a friday.

I usually spar about 16 or so rounds per week. Although that has jumped to as high as 30 per week when I was training for Nationals or Golden Gloves.

How about you guys?

I was about to make a thread about sparring but you made one.

I try to spar atleast twice a week, sometimes i can only get one session.

Ideally i like to get 6-8 rounds per sessions. Sometimes the guys i spar with only wants to do 4, so i take what i can get.

What sucks is that my gym only has 6 heavyweights including me, and not everybody is there everyday. Plus two of the other heavyweights don't like/want to spar me. Sometimes guys from other gyms can come over or we go there but thats not really often.

Today i went 12 rounds with a good friend of mine, it was the first time i went that long. I was spent by the end, felt like puking. We went hard but it's cool cause we're friends outside the gym aswell, best sparring session i have had in a long time.
