Default Workout Program Critique

Hello Everyone,

I'm new to the forum. I recently read "Kicking the Metcon Habit" by Jocelyn Forest and I could totally relate. I had been searching for a new workout to change things up and came across Crossfit. At first I loved everything about it. Then, however, I felt like I began to lose weight and muscle mass. Maybe I wasn't eating enough or maybe I was doing too many metcons, I don't know. Anyway, as an ex-football player, I have always been concerned with muscle mass, keeping my weight up, and being as strong as possible.

So I have developed a new program for myself, which is strictly weightlifting, not much cardio. Maybe some plyo's, agilities, and running on the weekend. I am wondering if someone out there can take a look at my program to see if I am setting myself up for making gains in strength and size, instead of over training. Any suggestions and critiques are greatly appreciated.

Thanks and happy training
