George Carradine asks:
I’ve been following CrossFit Football for 6 months and have made excellent progress in terms of strength and conditioning. I am an amateur soccer player based in the UK and am training to excel at my sport and also be bigger, stronger, faster in life in general.

My question concerns how to best utilise the CSFB programme when playing matches twice per week as typically I play every Saturday and Monday. My Saturday match is not the issue but I am concerned that by doing the SWOD  & DWOD on Monday morning, playing my match Monday evening, then SWOD & DWOD on Tuesday afternoon the volume will become too significant to allow for sufficient recovery and adaption. Would you advise taking Tuesday rather than Wednesday as a rest day and doing Tuesday's work on Wednesday? Or should it be a case of scheduling extra food and sleep to cope with the stresses of playing Monday's match and following the programme as planned? I'm sure there are plenty of athletes who have more than one game day per week so I would be interested in hearing your thoughts on how best to cope with this. Thanks for the great website and podcast. These really are superb resources extremely well delivered.

    George – Game Days are Tues for me. I shift the entire CFFB schedule 3 days back so CFFB Saturdays fall on my Tuesday. Currently, I skip Mondays (CFFB Fridays). After what Ben said though, I will start adding Monday SWODs back into the mix. If it adversely affects performance, I will cease immediately, only pausing briefly to delete Ben from my Christmas card list.

    CFFB Day/Ingo Training Day:
    Sunday/Wed (rest)
    Wed/Saturday (rest)
    Sat/Tues (Game Day)
