I've rarely done anything over 10 minutes in six months.

I have recently put on 6 kilos of decent mass by eating an extra 60g protein a day and a big bowl of ice cream right before bed.

Workout is the same. Heavy lifting, no splits, limited metcon.

Seems to be the party line here, but yes, cut down the metcons to just a couple a week, and keep them short.

Given that one of your goals seems to be a high-level of GPP, I would suggest alternating periods of lifting/short metcons with CrossFit workouts. You could even make it a seasonal thing.

At CrossFit RVA, we'll be essentially doing this for the greater part of the winter. We;re cutting the length of metcon work, producing shorter, heavier workouts, with plenty of lifting days. Add in a little extra skill work to fill in the time gap, and I believe that everyone will come out strong, fit, and ready for some longer workouts in the spring.
