John,

On my strength days I'm usually doing 5x5 as you noted.

On my metcon days I'm doing things like 5 rounds for time of 25 sit-ups, pull-ups, push-ups, burpees, squats. Things like that. Essentially workouts that don't focus on max lifting capacity but working higher reps for time where you work yourself both aerobically and anerobically (although at lower weights/resistance).

I'm not an authority on what will or won't cause strength loss. That being said from what I have read and understand the key is having sufficient recovery, meaning lots of quality sleep and an excellent diet.
