Rhabdomyolysis (Rhabdo):

Can you "overdo it" when working out? Of course you can, and at some point we all do to a certain extent. You want to make sure that plain old soreness, not pain, is all you get. There is a reason people ease into these workouts. CrossFit produces a strong adaptation from you body, so there is potential to get a negative systemic response if you go too hard when starting out.

A condition called rhabdomyolysis can occur with extremely hard efforts or workouts. Your body can handle a certain amount of muscle damage from working out (this is how we grow/build our muscles). By repeatedly taxing muscle tissue, then rebuilding that tissue, our muscles get stronger. If you overdo it, you can cause so much muscle damage that the waste materials end up in your kidneys, where those wastes normally go, but in much smaller amounts. If you have trashed your muscle tissue by exerting too hard, you can have serious kidney problems.  In some rare cases this has led to death. You can avoid this my using common sense and following one of the most basic rules of CFV Colorado: Leave your ego at the door.

How do you avoid Rhabdo? Stay hydrated (not 20 minutes before a workout, more like 12 hours), drink a lot of water every daily whether working out or not. Practice good nutrition habits. Don?t starve yourself or eat trash. You need natural minerals and vitamins. Sleep well, limit stress, and chiefly, ease into training. Fitness engagments will be here for the rest of your life, enjoy it. There will be plenty of time to get your butt kicked by fun/hard workouts!

I am aware that there are significant risks involved in all aspects of physical training including rhabdomyolysis. I understand and agree that I am voluntarily participating in physical activities which may expose me to this risk.
