How often to MEBB?

If I am looking to emphasize strength gains as a priority alongside the WOD, is squatting and benching once a week, aiming for linear gains each week, an effective way to go? I was thinking about a 3x5 scheme like SS.

I want to squat because my technique needs work (as revealed by Rip's article), and the bench is the best upper body compound movement which isn't frequently part of the WOD. I think combining these two gives me the most efficient combo for strength gains.
