I have been using 5/3/1 for about 6 months, and the 100 rep challenge looks like a fun change of pace leading into the Fall. I was just wondering what weights I should use for the Good Mornings and Barbell Row? I haven’t used these in my program as of yet because I was favoring more body weight exercises. (I am Military and have to be able to crank out hundreds of Push Ups and Pull Ups a week, so I practiced and trained those things.)
I am currently Five foot Nine and 190 pounds.
I didn’t read that one. Was it 100 in one set or in as few sets as possible?
What is your question exactly? The 100 reps is not supposed to be on a compound lift like GM or BB Row, the article gave some examples of what to use.

1 set, its the same principles as stuff like 5 sets of 20 or what you said.
The Good Mornings were 3-5 sets of 10-15 reps. I started at 3 sets of 12 reps with 65 pounds. It felt really light but I am still unsure how to go about increasing the weight. I would like it to be difficult, but I would also really like my spine not to go shooting out of my throat.
The rows were the same, but I had been doing high rep Dumbbell rows prior so I just upped the weight about 20 pounds and followed the rep scheme and tried to not talk to my self too much.
