The reality is that it's going to be tough to keep qualities you've had to train specifically for when no longer training specifically for them. I would simply do the minimum work you need to achieve the testing results you want and reduce the lifting as needed to accommodate that work. You'll probably find that you can keep lifting pretty heavy as long as you reduce the total volume. Stick more with heavy singles in the classic lifts and doubles and triples in the squats.
