You can handle as much as you can eat and sleep. If all you do is train, eat and sleep it should be no problem. However since you're 13 I doubt you're able to do that.

I'd suggest trying 12 hours a week, then back off to where you get a good balance of recovery and training.

Yeah a 13 yo can handle 12 hours maybe a little bit more just make sure you give some good recovery time and you make yourself healthy.

I spend maybe 6 hours a week doing kickboxing and bjj. Maybe 3-4 more hours if you include cardio I do on my own time.

gotta make sure you have time to recover physically, pushing beyond that only stunts gains and hurts your body. honestly it depends on the 13 year old kid.
