If you are not willing to reduce your number of WODs, which would be my number one suggestion, then what Patrick said is important. Absolutely cut out any WODs that involve snatches and clean and jerks. We have a good number of members of our competitive team who are dual members at one of several CrossFit affiliates. We don't let them count any high rep snatches or clean and jerks toward their total weightlifting volume for the week. And, what Blake said is also very important. Weightlifting sessions should be weightlifting sessions: Snatch, clean and jerk, squats. Don't try to throw a WOD on top of that. Realistically, if you are doing what you need to be doing in order to improve your weightlifting in two sessions a week, then you shouldn't have time to do a significant WOD in the same session anyway.
