How To Balance Olympic Lifting Days And Crossfit?

you should start doing both. like i said you can do olympic lifting on crossfit days but it wont be optimal for your training if you follow this routine. i recommend doing one of the following things:

And, what I like to call “daily hards”. You see, many people—especially those who don’t do heavy strength training, or other sports that require a ton of athleticism—find it incredibly tough to stick with a regular gym schedule because they always neglect their physical fitness without really giving it much thought. But, what if we introduced an exercise routine that forced us to do something we enjoy and take part in? How would our workout sessions fare against the usual gym “sittings” we might be used to? What about our rest periods? What about how motivated we are throughout each session?
