Help planning my workouts

Hey Guys, first thread around here, though i have followed cf.com for long time.. Im a 6'1 5/8, 190 lbs guy looking to put some weight on. My problem is that i have a hard time planning my workouts, due to american football training tuesday and thursday. I follow the Crossfitfootball.com workout sheet, which suggest training monday, tuesday, thursday, friday, and saturday. I really think im pushing my body to hard by doing both workouts and practice... Any Ideas on how to plan it better? should i move the workouts to other days, cut them in half, etc???

Re: Help planning my workouts

CFFB is in offseason mode right now since most people aren't playing football--I'd look back at last fall's CFFB programming to find their inseason stuff. It's designed with lower volume and intensity so it integrates with a normal practice schedule.

Or you could just do something like GSLP or 5/3/1 that has you lifting 2-4x per week and let football practice act as your conditioning. That's what I've done with my 2-3x per week rugby training and it hasn't been too much for me.

Re: Help planning my workouts

I would follow the on season workouts or skip Saturday's workout if following the off season WOD's.

So, it would look like this:
Mon- CFFB swod/dwod
tues- CFFB swod/dwod and practice (Scale or eliminate DWOD if needed)
WED-REST
Thurs- CFFB Swod/dwod and practice (Scale or eliminate DWOD if needed)
Fri- CFFB Swod/DWOD
Sat-Rest
Sun-Rest

"what Eric said"

also listen to your body if you think it's to much maybe it is. Step back (ie one or two days taking out or stepping it down a notch) and reincorporate CFF a little bit at a time. Also take a look at your diet with all the extra training you may need to get some more intake.
