This week class is going to begin with a warm up lap around the block to get you moving, and go right into a group stretching review. These are stretches you can use before or after a workout to improve flexibility, reduce risk of injury, and improve recovery. A lot of you have been great about grabbing a foam roller before or after class, but it doesn’t look like as many of you have taken to stretching on your own. There’s going to be some extra conditioning this week in order to give you the tools to maximize your performance, and feel great.

Aquapocalypse Update: Due to a major water pipe burst in Weston on Saturday the Boston area is without clean drinking water, including CrossFit Fenway. If you’re coming to class be sure to bring boiled water, or buy bottled water. Check here for answers to other questions you may have. Hey, at least we’re prepared with a theme song for just such a situation.
Soxpocalypse Update: After being swept by the Orioles over the weekend, the Red Sox return home Monday to take on the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, so there’s no parking during evening classes. Clay Buchholz will hopefully continue to prove why sending Wake to the pen was the right call.
