Default 13 Iowa Football players hospitalized from workout

Quote:
owa City, IA (Sports Network) - A strenuous squat workout has been cited as the cause for the hospitalization of 13 Iowa football players in January.

A five-person faculty-staff committee appointed by University of Iowa president Sally Mason released its report Wednesday to the board of regents.

The committee concluded that the workout, conducted January 20, resulted in rhabdomyolysis -- a stress-induced muscle injury syndrome that can affect the kidneys -- in the 13 players and unusual soreness in most of the players it surveyed.

The players were hospitalized several days after the workout and were gradually released soon after.

The report said that the injured players were "completely blameless" and that no injured player had taken any contributing illegal substance. It also said no football coach, trainer, or physician knowingly did anything wrong.

But it concluded that communications were handled poorly and set forth 10 recommendations. Among them were that the football program should reaffirm its recent decision to abandon the type of workout that caused the 13 players' injuries.

The report details the January 20 workout, which was the first intensive session following the winter break. Specifically, it detailed a portion of the workout that required players to perform 100 back squats with a barbell weighted with half of the maximum weight each player had lifted at his last assessment.

It said players were given as much time as they needed to complete the 100 squats, because the goal was to create a sense of accomplishment. Coaches at times told players to take breaks because of deteriorating form, and all but one player completed the task.

I know coaches work on mental toughness in workouts but at some point you have to consider the safety of the players.
