SS like programming 3 days a week with plenty of food and protein to support your work and the 4th day can be something to work on your other goals like metcon. simple.

What are your numbers right now on the lifts? and did you really exhaust linear gains while on SS previously? Whats your height and weight? We can help you more if you let us know some of those things.

You should be doing at least some oly work NOW because it's such a high skill movement.

Otherwise, what are your lifts and weight? What diet are you on? etc. Like Kevin said.. we can't help you unless we know you're newbie, intermediate, advanced, etc.

You would benefit from doing SS (again?).

Do you have the book? If not I would suggest buying it.

I believe Pavel also said that actuaries make better lifters than artists, because they don't have mental block doing mundane tasks repeatedly. If you find that training gets boring, than crossfit.com may be the way to go. You also get to work out 6 days for every 8.

That said, any O-lifting will begin with lots of singles and doubles of teensy-tinsy weights. You can do that probably everyday if you want to hit the gym a lot. Being strong has no bearing on your technical ability.

The thing is that you needto concentrate on building a strong base of strength first before you can focus on anything else and that means getting a lot of food and rest. The more you rest the better your gains will be and the faster you can get through the program and move on to other things.

You could follow SS on the standard 3x week and throw in a short metcon once a week if that suits you but it could hinder your recovery.

6ft 170... you need to be stronger.

Are you training for anything in particular? An Oly squat is more anterior chain while a low-bar/PLing squat is more posterior chain. Not good or bad just depends on what you are training for.
