Scaled as follows:
5 pull-ups
15 push-ups
20 sit-ups
25 squats

5 rounds, 3 minutes rest

2:55
2:30
2:35
3:22
3:26

2:59 average per round; 26:56 total time, with rest.

I have been discussing scaling with Dan and Pete and reading a lot about it, especially the Relative Intensity article from Performance Menu's June 2009 issue.
This was the first attempt I had at scaling along these lines, with an attempt at a power output increase. Not counting the sit-ups, here is the breakdown in horsepower per round vs. my last attempt on March 5. That attempt was with Ring Rows, so I believe the estimates are high for those rounds.

Round 1
2:55 - .13
8:55 - .11
Round 2
2:30 – .16
8:24 - .11
Round 3
2:35 – .15
10:11 - .09
Round 4
3:22 – .12
8:20 - .11
Round 5
3:26 – .11
7:24 - .12

I definitely had higher output with the lower rep counts, which is the goal.
