How do you guys who play sports do your WODs. Im playing rugby and its hard to do WODs on match day and the days before and after. Do tou just skip those days or how do you work it out.

My contests are on weekends. In season, I have two training days. One normally on Monday and the other on Wednesday. During the off season it's every other day or as often as I can physically perform the workouts.

Right now, I'm still in the preseason, and I'm going five on, one off, with my event training considered part of the workouts.

Don't skip the workout. Just bring down the intensity, and take a few days off before the match or game. Train a day or two after the game and no less than 48 hours before. You need to recoup before the match.

IMO, I would skip the day before match WOD.

All the best,

We scale back conditioning the day before a meet. Generally we won't condition the day of a meet.

I play lacrosse for school and I let practices keep my conditioning levels where I need them to be (so no WOD). I try to get strength in for legs (squats and DL) 2-3 times a week along with some upper body lifting.

there's a good threah over at the Performance Menu(PM) Forum.
Also a good article in the PM:

As far as main page WOD and in season training, I would take Friday off completely from the WOD.

My ideal WOD rugby template would be:
Sunday: swim/row. light recovery work
Monday: MEtcon WOD(or interval rowing)
Tuesday: AM ME lifting, PM Team Training
Wed: Metcon WOD or rowing
Thursday: ME lifting in AM, PM Team Training
Friday: off, or light jog/recovery work
Saturday: Game day.

Note, this is ideal, and is a lot of work. Scale and recover appropriately.

Personally, I don't do any major exercise the day before, or on game day. Bodyweight exercises, some stretching or yoga, maybe some light KB work. Rugby is such a demanding sport that you need to be firing on all cylinders for the game. Doing a WOD on game day is going to decrease your energy levels. Anyway, I'd consider a game of rugby to be the ultimate WOD, especially if you are a forward.
