That sounds about right. First thing I thought when they explained the challenge was, "Hmmm, this sounds like a good way to give someone rhabdo...."

Ager.
Ager is 5'9" tall, around 145. She drops to compete in the 63kg class.

Eh, not if you know what you're doing and squat a lot already. They are well-tuned enough to know when they need to stop (except the bb'er apparently!) abd there's a reason the had racks there and didn't require five mi urea straight with the bar on your back.

The biggest problem with rhabdo would be doing a ton of reps of something you aren't used to do, or pushing yourself to complete failure.

This is how a CFer would do at this event. 99 reps in 5 minutes.

58/63...Doesn't really matter much.

Didn't realize she was that tall.

Re: "Who is the sickest squatter"

This would have been way more interesting if it was all athletes of a similar bodyweight all squatting the same weight for time AND if they were known athletes not no name guys, who may have done 1 or 2 competitions, so as to ensure they lift properly because yes THAT powerlifter had ****ty squats, but I don't know many REAL powerlifters who squat that badly.

I though the same thing about a set weight.
