Crossfit Football Training

Fellow Athletes,

I've recently been working out alone and not being able to do WODs with any affiliate. I thought it'd be nice to be able to choose my own workouts but I''ve found that sometimes I'll skip over a WOD with a weakness for say another WOD that "seems more fun." I've decided to follow CFFB to regulate my crossfit workouts.
My only question is, if I don't actually play football, how do I know if i should do the In-season/Off-season WODS, and whether or not I should do the Professional, collegiate or amateur strength portions?
Do they program each of these differently depending on what kind of football training their target demographic will be doing?

Thanks All,

Re: Crossfit Football Training

You should do off-season, because in-season has less volume, taking into consideration the demands that football puts on the athlete. Amateur is for people who can make daily progress, college is for people who can make weekly progress, and professional is for others. Try out amateur if you're unsure.

If you don't play football, you should follow the off season programme.

Re: Crossfit Football Training

I recently switched to CFFB because I need strength training. I am consistently adding 5lbs to all of my lifts as they direct. It feels great.

I do off season amateur training.

Re: Crossfit Football Training

I'd keep an archive of the In-Season WODs because of their reduced volume since you are in the service you may have to deal with mandatory unit PT. If you want strength work on the side use the reduced volume of the in season WODs.
