Check out this thread, http://www.crossfit.com/discus/messages/24/2524.html
I answered essentially the same question.

So what you might have done to keep the same emphasis is choose the heaviest weight that you could do the workout as written with. For a workout that was clearly more aimed at strength you could choose your options 1) or 3). Option 4) is good for a beginner.

General strategy;
- as a beginner get through the WOD any way at all and learn the movements/ get in the habit
- as you get more accomplished, start noticing the pattern of the WODs and make your changes so that you still get the intended effect.
