PUSH Week Success!

What a great week of fitnessing all round... such amazing energy in the gym. PUSH week was a solid way to get us all moving and energized after a tough period of restrictions due to COVID.
Over the next couple of days, I'll be tabulating the winners and announcing prizes. Just a reminder that only 3 of the PUSH week wods will count towards the overall scoring... can you guess which ones?
This is always the fun part of the week, trying to piece together the best overall test of fitness over 3 workouts. On the one hand, it would be a solid choice to have Fran, Nurwor, and DT ... and on the other, the Friday workout really tested a lot of different components of fitness and would be a worthy inclusion.
What are your thoughts?
We'll look to do a PUSH week every 6-8 weeks, so stay tuned for our next one... and other fun fitness challenges to come :)
See you soon,
