Default strength + metcon programming?

So i've been doing a ganty-ish hybrid program for a while to improve my judo and my tumbling, and to just get stronger and fitter.

My question is about how to incorporate metcons with strength training. More specifically, which types of movements to use.

Example...i do heavy presses, followed by a metcon. In this metcon, if i wanted to do something with pressing, would it be better to do some kind of overhead movement like a push jerk, or a different plane of pressing such as pushups or dips.

Another example. I do heavy weighted chins, then a metcon, would it be better to do more pullups in the metcon, or a different pull such as deadlifts or power cleans.

Anyone have an opinion?
