Let’s talk about the tiny number of reps for a second…

If today’s L1 workout included twice the Push Ups at every turn, it would take five rounds (which will be very easy to do) to amass fifty Push Ups (which would be hard to do).  From there you would still have a large amount of Push Ups remaining in the form of two additional AMRAPs, which will likely lead to either relying on your knees/breakdancing or looking at the floor as you accumulate more and more rest.  As far as the L2 workout goes, the Power Cleans will likely be done at a faster rate than their HSPU counterpart.  If it had been 8 HSPU for every 4 Power Cleans, much of your AMRAPs (which are very short in duration) would have been spent looking at a wall while waiting to reload that next rep.  Whichever workout you do should be taxing not only in the movements being performed, but also because of the speed of the transitions between them.

The perfect way to wrap this up should go right here,
