On Episode 199 of CrossFit Radio, host Justin Judkins interviewed CrossFit A.C.T. owner Bill Shockley and Pepperdine University professor Dr. Cooker Perkins. This episode was webcast live at 6 p.m. PDT on Wednesday, Nov. 23, 2011.

The Workout of the Week (WOW) is from CrossFit L.A.’s website:

In 3 minutes, complete the following:
Run 200 meters
135-lb. thrusters, max reps
Rest 2 minutes
In 6 minutes, complete the following:
Run 400 meters
135-lb. thrusters, max reps
Rest 2 minutes
In 9 minutes, complete the following:
Run 800 meters
135-pound thrusters, max reps

The score for this workout is the total number of thrusters in each round.

5:25 Bill Shockley owns CrossFit A.C.T. in Saddle Brook, N.J. He told his unique story of finding CrossFit and how he has continually sought to become a better CrossFit trainer and coach. He also gave coaching advice on how he helps his athletes use their training journals. Shockley and Jessica Murden recently put together the Nasty Northeast Throwdown, and he explained why they put on the event and what the first day was like on 9/11. Finally, Shockley talked about the next competition he will host for LEOs, called the “Battle of the Badges.”

30:55 Dr. Cooker Perkins is a professor and researcher at Pepperdine University, where she teaches courses in sports medicine and conducts research on maternal and child health. Perkins came on the show to talk about some of her research that was recently featured in the CrossFit Journal article CrossFit Training During Pregnancy and Motherhood. She described how pregnant CrossFit women who continue to work out are breaking new ground in the area of exercising while pregnant. She also gave recommendations and warning signs for women who choose to be active during pregnancy, and she talked about her future research plans.

Due to an email problem, Dr. Perkins asks that any women who previously contacted her please reconnect via this address:

Women who are interested in learning more about the study and participating are also encouraged to contact her at the same address. Initial eligibility: women who voluntarily participated in CrossFit training during their pregnancy (no intensity or frequency requirements) and kept a consistent log of their workouts.
