how much time per day you spend at training? Do you train all three disciplines in one training?

Hey Evan, thanks for posting the answer. It reminds me I have to update my facts now. At this time I spend 2 hours per day 3 days per week. I let go of a few days so that I could have a life outside juggling and spend more time with my son. It works out fine for my performance, however I would not recommend this to someone who has not been at it for 30 years. I do train all three disciplines during each practice session.

Good for you, Anthony! I've heard people say that they wished they had spent more time with their family, but not so many say that they wished they had spent more time at work.

Anthony it sounds as if you are just trying to mantain your skill level so you can prolong your career as long as possible. But in your earlier years, how much did you practice each day?

Not too much more. When I was a kid, the most was an hour and a half 7 days a week. From about 29-33 years, I would practice about three hours 5-6 days a week. Now, as you can see I have dropped off considerably. I am just maintaining now. I don;t have much interest to do more with my juggling other than keep working and maintain my high level act.

Anthony do you think that you could theortically be better now if you practice lets say 8 hours a day every day for the first 37 years of your life. Or do you belive that practice can only help you up to a certain point.

I don't believe I would have been any better with that much practice. What many don't realize are the effects over training has on the body and mind. Nick Gatto knew about this first hand, which is why he kept me at a reasonable practice schedule. It also kept me from hating the hell out of it in my early years. 8 hours of practice a day is about 5 hours of wasted time. Don't get caught in the more is better trap.
