Virtuosity is defined in gymnastics as "performing the common uncommonly well." There is no perfect score even for a perfect routine without virtuosity. To achieve virtuosity is to always work for full range of motion, hit your target, perfect your mechanics, to not count reps that fall short, and to be honest with yourself and others when counting your reps. Scaling motions is an awesome way to get better and keep a high power output while building upon the fundamental skills they require, but the goal should always be to work toward the RX'd motion standard. This does not mean that you cannot attain virtuosity if you are not doing prescribed workouts yet. As long as you work to ensure that you are maximizing your current potential and working for perfect scaled reps you are on the right path. Do the best you can do with what you have, and you will undoubtedly find that your work capacity will increase over time.
