    How to combine lifting and crossfit?

    Looking to optimise my workout for next year, currently is as follows (crossfit/push/pull/legs split)

    Monday: Crossfit
    Tuesday: Push day
    Wednesday: Crossfit
    Thursday: Pull day
    Friday: Crossfit
    Saturday: Light leg session
    Sunday: Rest

    I wish I could train legs more but my knees are both ****ed from tendonopathy, so it's more self physio than training legs. Don't really want to drop any crossfit sessions as I like the fitness and conditioning it has given me.

    Am I getting enough gym workouts in per week with what I'm doing now? I do a lot of volume on the push/pull days, but is one day a week for push, and then pull, enough?

    I feel like crossfit is more for the metcons /Olympic lifting technique and don't feel like it constitutes hypertrophy.

    This. And I'd maybe do something like below.

    Day 1 Push
    Day 2 Pull
    Day 3 Legs
    Day 4 Rest
    Then repeat the four day process again.

    Otherwise what I currently do because of my family life and work schedule is;
    Day 1 Upper Body
    Day 2 Lower Body
    Day 3 Rest
    Day 4 Rest
    Then repeat process gain.

    Been following the Viking Bare Bones program and its been working great.
    Progress, not perfection. One day at a time.

    Doing metcon and working on technique at the same time doesn't really work.
    I can tell time. Time cannot tell me.

    Unless you are very good at programming and know all of the Crossfit workouts at least a week in advance, it's not going to be a good idea. The most convenient way would be to have an additional training day on Saturday where you can give a little extra attention to any movement that was neglected during the week.
