For the last two off-seasons I've been doing crossfit. I'm really happy with what it's done for my skiing but both last year and this year I've thought that I'd keep doing it during the season a couple days a week only to find myself giving it up mid-season because I feel worn down and always skiing with sore muscles. I end up just skiing and trying to eat healthy until the offseason starts again. It's a decent system but I don't like going cold-turkey during the season, as I'm losing some of the strength that I built up during the offseason and it feels like I get some imbalances from purely skiing.
I'm wondering if others do crossfit during the season and, if so, how do you keep yourself fresh for skiing and avoid from burning yourself out? Are there other workout programs that are more complimentary to in-season skiing? FYI, I do crossfit about four days per week in the offseason and in-season I ski three days per week. At the beginning of the season I'm usually in the gym 1-2 days per week but, as I said, haven't been able to keep it up through the season.
