Gillian Mounsey and Maj. Don Clarkson joined Justin on Episode 91 of CrossFit Radio, webcast live at 6 p.m. PDT on Wednesday, Oct. 28, 2009.

1:41 CrossFit firebreather Gillian Mounsey came on the show to talk about a special event she has organized: she’s going to do 100 muscle-ups in an hour to raise money for Hope for the Warriors. Mounsey explained what Hope for the Warriors is and how it helps U.S. servicemen and women and their families. She explained how her idea was created, who helped bring it to fruition and what CrossFitters can do to help.

18:36 Maj. Don Clarkson runs the affiliate CrossFit Fort Hood. He talked about what it was like to have Jimi L. and Coach Glassman give a presentation to the senior officers at Fort Hood. Operation Phoenix provided $20,000 worth of equipment, and Maj. Clarkson detailed how the gear made it possible to evaluate soldiers doing CrossFit vs. soldiers doing standard army PT over eight weeks. He talked about the results of the study and how they are working toward implementation of CrossFit post-wide in the units at Fort Hood.

JJ, I got to meet MAJ Clarkson and the guys at CrossFit Centurion when I was down at Ft. Hood this summer. They've got some great things going on down there, very exciting stuff for the Army CrossFit community. Thanks for getting him on the show!

Hey JJ, great show

as far as getting Maj. Don's 8 weeks of programing you might suggest just putting it into his upcoming journal article. That might have been the plan already but that seems like it'd be the best way to disseminate it and keep track of it if anyone ever wants to come back and find it.

Keep after it big show 1-0-0 is just around the corner! Tell Neil the crossfit nation says hi if you talk to him. (You could have him on as a guest some time, we'd all love to know how he's doing.)
