5/3/1 BBB and endurance

I want to be a complete athlete. I lack some strength and size, that's why i've been doing 5/3/1 for months, i got great results, i'm way stronger than i was before. 5/3/1 alone didn't give me enough hypertrophy, i gained some fat, that's why i started doing 5/3/1 with Boring But Big template 2 months ago. So far i'm very happy with the results, 531 gives me the strenght, BBB gives me the size that i want, i'm on my track with these two. After a while i realized i haven't been doing oly lifting thing for a while, that's why i also integrated power cleans and snatches to my program. My weekly schedule is that;

Monday: 531 S.Press + 5x10 Bench / Chinups Superset
Tuesday: P.Snatch + 531 Squat + Metcon
Wednesday: Rest
Thursday: Bench 531 + 5x10 S.Press / Pullups Superset
Friday: P. Clean + Deadlift 531 + 5x10 Squat + Metcon
Saturday: Metcon (Filthy-Fifty day mostly)

My question is about muscular endurance now. To be honest i lack some knowledge about muscular endurance. I mean i don't know if you need to work on your muscular endurance seperately or endurance comes by you get stronger and you just need to do some metcons to improve or at least maintain your cardiovascular fitness. If you need to work extra for muscular endurance, what kind of training methods or metcons would you suggest me to follow ? Any help will be appreciated, thanks.

Just keep doing what your are doing. If strength is going up, muscular endurance will improve to some extent especially with the BBB template.
