I like your program for someone who has exhausted a basic Linear Progression programs, is happy with/or close to their desired bodyweight and doesn't mind if the strength gains slow as long as they keep coming and wants to start upping their conditioning.

Strength can take a long time to build, conditioning can come a little quicker. For metcons if you have a higher strength base the metcon weights won't be the challening part, the pace you choose to do the metcon will be the challenge.
what he said. go to the 3 day gslp with 2 metcons a week and once you hit your end with linear, then switch it up
