This workout is meant to have a strength bias, but no score is worth compromising form or safety.
Pick a weight which you can maintain immaculate form for each movement. If your form starts to break, stop. If you find that your form breaks early, stop, reset and perform the workout at lower skill level.
Make sure to consult with your coach to pick the appropriate skill level.

Post reps completed during the 6 minutes of work time. Ex: 85 L3.
