Direct from the Book

The workout for Wednesday was pulled right out of our new CrossFit Fenway WOD Books (BWR8, page 129).  The WOD Books go beyond being a great way to track progress, and also include a lot of useful information.  In addition to all the standard named WODs, there are a bunch we’ve never heard of, as well as many more unnamed workouts, such as the one we’ve selected for Wednesday.  If you’re traveling, and you have your WOD Book, you’ve got instant exercise inspiration.

The books also include answers to some questions frequently asked of the coaches, like tables to help calculate max lifts based on loads moved at various rep schemes, and kilo-to-pound conversion charts (especially helpful at CFF).  They’ve also got Paleo food lists (which could be very useful in the not so distant future), as well as a Zone block guide.  All in all the WOD Books are more than just a fancy journal with an awesome logo to record your workouts.  They are actually a tool to aid in your pursuit of fitness.  If you’d like to pick one up, you’re in luck!  We have a few of the limited first run still available.
