Scaling:
Ideally, each set will be as heavy as possible, but newer athletes should start light and add weight as they are comfortable. Experienced athletes can establish a goal weight for the final set of each movement. Work backward to help guide the load choice for the initial sets. Spend at least 10-15 minutes warming up to the working load for the first set. If at any point your mechanics begin to deteriorate, decrease the load.

Intermediate Option:
Back squat 10-8-6-4 reps
Shoulder press 10-8-6-4 reps
Deadlift 10-8-6-4 reps

Scaling:
Focus on excellent technique on every set. The beginner should focus on mechanics instead of loading. If you have a previous maximal load for this movement, use this as an opportunity to attempt a new PR. For more experienced athletes, only increase the load if your technique is consistent.

Beginner Option:
Snatch 3-3-2-2-2-1-1 reps
