What is Rhabdo (Rhabdomyolysis)? We can dispense with much medical detail with a quick and easy description of rhabdomyolysis as a potentially lethal systemic meltdown initiated by the kidneys in response to the presence of shed muscle-fiber debris and exhaust in the bloodstream. There are several causes and types of rhabdo, classified by the underlying cause of muscle breakdown. With CrossFit we are dealing with what is known as exertional rhabdomyolysis. It can disable, maim, and even kill. Basically, Rhabdo in CrossFit can manifest itself due to over-doing-it, especially when you are new to CrossFit, have been away for a while, or are pushing your limits. Know your limits. Symptoms of rhabdo include, but are not limited to, extreme soreness, muscle weakness, fatigue and “Coke” colored urine. Treatment involves flushing your system out with IV fluids. Dehydration, heat and statin drugs are some factors that can make you more susceptible. Rhabdo is no joke. If you suspect Rhabdo, then get medical attention immediately.
