I've been crossfitting for about two years now- Followed SS then onto the gant grimes hybrid program. After reading this artical I've realised I pretty much fit into this picture!

But I'm pretty lost at the moment on what I should move onto next. Does anyone have any suggestions on programs that I could follow or put me in the right direction?

Sorry I'm new to the forum!

I enjoy crossfit all and all but the training is leaving me in a bad way. I like the strength/ oly lifting side of the Hybrid program and I honestly think it's adding up to be a bit much too. I'd really like to keep it in and around the same kind of thing but was wondering if there is a better approach to it all.

I've got in pretty good shape with the hybrid too..and would like to keep my build..or even pack on a bit of size!

So pretty much a strength/oly program with conditioning in a smart way that isnt going to leave me in the state of overtraining...

Are you training for anything in particular? That helps people with their answers....i.e. I want to look better, I want to play sport XYZ better, I want to be able to back squat 400 pounds....etc.

Have you tried the Catalyst Athletics Workouts? They sound like they are exactly what you want.

Sorry for the late reply. I'm after a program that'll make me look/feel better and keep healthy. I'm not really enjoying training crossfit and finding its just leaving me burned out beyond anything.

I took a bit of time away to try and rest up thus the late reply. I usually train at home but I do goto a crossfit gym 2/3 times a week. So I have alot of gear to work with at home.

Thanks for all the help and sorry if this is confusing or anything.

It can be as simple or as complicated as you want to make it.
First: address any weaknesses that you may have and work on them.
Do the 4 lifts-Squat;Deadlift;Benchpress; Shoulder Press.
Long Slow Distance for endurance base.
Stretch constantly
Find a sport/activity that you enjoy and pursue it

Try Coach Rut's WODs. Simple, reasonable progression and very sustainable, with the right dose of intensity to (as he says) "stimulate, not annihilate."
