Earth to the PP, the University of Iowa is in Iowa City, not Ames. These were Iowa players, not Iowa State.

Sounds like the Iowa State Cyclones need to clean up their act. These cheater workouts are probably what enabled them to beat the Goophers in the Insight Bowl a year and a half ago.

For sure, barbell squats are one of the most strenuous exercises - and one of the most effective for building overall body strength. but you do need to be careful. you need to be in condition to do the exercise first of all, and i wouldn't do any contests or anything like that. just be careful and allow time to recover from each set. Also, i would not do squats more than twice a week.

Fire the coach for poor supervision!
