Similar to the old "15 OHS with BW", only much more dangerous to the system.
It seems like crossfit is becoming a sport of extreme muscular endurance, the ultamarathon of weight lifting. Not sure if that still qualifies as 'functional.' 100 back squats with body weight made me want to puke just thinking about it!

One quote I saw from a player said he did 100 squats with 240 pounds, and it was a timed exercise.

I think that old video of Dr. Ken doing something like 425 x 20 something reps @ 160-170 was way more impressive than that filth from CF.

ESPN has an article on this Iowa thing: http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=6061650

The workout included 100 weighted squats for time, 100 weighted bench presses for time, and pulling a weighted sled 100 yards, according to ESPN.

More "numerology"-type of workouts, with biologically meaningless rep numbers. Must have been a CrossFitter's 100th birthday or something.

Main page of University of Iowa had a link to this article: http://spectator.uiowa.edu/2011/january/amendola.html

For athletes, I think itís important to not over-train. Look at a balanced program to maintain good core muscle function so when you do stress the body with, say, long distance running or an aggressive sport like basketball or football, your joints are able to tolerate that activity because youíve prepared them well.

I did 100 BS with bodyweight once. Legs were sore the next day, back was sore for a few days. In retrospect, it had no point whatsoever.

Yeah, I've said it before, I've gotten suckered into max rep dick-measuring contests before and around 50+ reps you realize this is just really freakin' stupid.

Haha, I've been saying basically the same thing for a while. CF = something like triathlons with a barbell/KB/whatever.

They've simply fallen prey to the more is better trap. Too bad it wasn't the "more weight on the bar" version.

Ya, the workouts start to feel like military assessments or tryouts. Although those methods are used to weed people out, not train them.

A great quote from PPST:

"Planning a program of weight training requires a clearly defined set of goals for the athlete. Once the goals are established, training must be relatively specific, meaning that exercises and programming should pertain specifically to the sport. Training without planning is not much of a program, and if progress occurs it will be in spite of the program rather than because of it."

great book.

this one handed typing just suuuuuucks.
