In my opinion...

If you're training for strength or power, your conditioning (if you do it) should be modest, mostly low and moderate intensity, and complement your strength program.

If you're training for GPP, you should do your strength and power movements first, and your conditioning should be a mix of low, moderate, and high intensity, depending on where you are in your program (wave, block, etc.; if you're doing linear with lots of conditioning, do 3 weeks on, 1 week deload). Your conditioning should complement your strength program.

If you're training for an event or sport, your conditioning should be appropriate to whatever you're doing. And no, cf.com is not appropriate.
