Finding the Right Training Schedule to Suit You

Scheduling your training around your work, recovery patterns, family and other commitments can be tough, so what's the best way to find out what works for you?

Sometimes life gets in the way of the ideal 3-days-on, 1-day-off training schedule.

When that’s the case, CrossFit Seminar Staff member Chris McDonald says CrossFit trainers need to help people train smarter.

Going hard for four or five days in a row will not work for most athletes. McDonald recommends incorporating skill work and mobility into the schedule.

“If you have that fourth and fifth day, it’s going to be hard to really bring intensity,” McDonald says.

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
