OP, I would probably not be calling your program "5/3/1 for Crossfit" (like the title of the thread suggests) because I am almost positive that the "5/3/1" is TMed and you could be getting yourself/your affiliate into possible legal trouble. Just a heads up.
Well first of all, you're wrong. Conditioning does not burn muscle, it burns fat, unless you are not eatting enough and not taking enough rest days. Therefor your whole concept is wrong, and the 5/3/1 system does not need to be modified.

I condition. A lot. To the tune of 20-25 miles running and 15-20 miles Ruck Marching.
I gain strength very regularly using an actual 5/3/1 program. In fact, I haven't stalled yet.
I am pretty sure I am not odd. I am pretty sure that people do this on a regular occasion.
So do what makes you happy, that's fine. If you want to do Crossfit in the morning, plus a Crossfit Football workout in the evening and swim on your off days while super-setting bosu ball curls and tricep kick backs, that is your right.
But on a page that Jim Wendler himself regularly writes on, and one that is full of amazing lifters in their own right, try really hard not to misname your posts. You will get flamed. Also try not to make ridiculously stupid claims like "Crossfitters need more volume."
