Post Clean Loads and Metcon Time to Comments
All %’s for the strength segment of the workout should be based on your 1RM for the lift and are meant to serve as a guide in your training.  You should generally not be failing on any set except maybe your last one of the day.  If you’re unsure about your technique or ability to perform a given set safely at the posted %, then use common sense and good judgement.  When in doubt, live to lift again another day.  You DO NOT have to do each set of 5 reps of this movement without taking your hands off  the bar.  You can and should take a short rest and reset for each rep at each %.             

For the Metcon add a hand release to scale up your pushups.  Scale the situps down to unanchored Abmat situps.
