The other thing is, a lot of the weightlifting drills they do arent going to do much for an athlete unless 1. You have a solid grasp of the lifts and the mechanics thereof, or 2. You have a coach who knows these things well and can fix issues in real time.
Seriously, if you really want to focus on weightlifting and really be a good lifter, I would recommend finding a good coach and taking a little time with them. I started with an actual weightlifting team a couple monts ago and I have to say its probably the best CrossFit related decision I have made.
Yeah... when I first started crossfit I was all amped up and ready to work my *** off, now I'm realizing it's going to take a more... intelligent approach, as in receiving some coaching and finding a place where I can focus more on weightlifting.
What's your stance on paid digital coaching? If it's within my budget and I can find a good coach in my area, I will try to do that, but if not, I may need to consider a digital coach.
