Using a metcon as an attempt to get stronger is generally a bad idea. Use strength work to get stronger and metcons to work on conditioning. It's hard to improve conditioning if the weight is too much for you to move it fairly quickly and consistently with minimal rest.

makes total sense..this is what i am looking for --clarity

i was trying to use wod to get stronger/bigger rather than better at conditioning and overall stamina..i like this explanation a lot, separating the conditioning to wod and strength training to other times.

thanks again
