There are more than a few cases like the ones in this L.A. Times article popping up across the nation. Remember what we tell you about rhabdomyolysis and prepare your body for these WODs, as well as THE RECOVERY we all need. If your body tells you to take a day off, take it.

While there are so many different individual adaptations to the workouts, a few things are constant: we all need to HYDRATE, GET DECENT SLEEP and AVOID CRAP FOOD as much as possible. If you hit these workouts without taking care of those three major points you increase your exposure. Another well documented correlate to rhabdo is the statin family of drugs used for cholesterol treatment. Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions about this.
