Elliot...glad to hear your going to take up O-lifting. You don't have to throw the baby out with the bath water, still do some CF skill work...but focus on gaining power via O-lifting practice (minimize the metcon work). Will you lose some of your metcon? Sure...but that comes back quickly, actually quicker with a greater strength reserve. I am more convinced of a program where CF is a base, but you break off into other areas for a month or so to develop one of the fitness components. Of all the fitness components strength and power are the most vital for performance. Doing a concentrated O-lifting or Powerlifting program will only help.
