Will Team Shenny + Demi team up for the WOD today!?
**All exercises are done in teams of 3 with 2 people working at a time and one person resting. The running and the broad jumps will be done as a team (all three people complete that movement together).
**Teams may have two barbells and KB’s. Unless there is not enough equipment available
**Communicaiton will be Key! You must get to 60 reps as a team and with two people working counting will be tricky
On a serious note, let's discuss Rhabdomyolysis, a.k.a. Rhabdo. "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." (Glassman, Greg; 2005)
Generally those who are most likely to suffer from exertional rhabdo are those who have been exposed to too much work (exercise) in too little time. Who are these types of people?
Former athletes, gym-goers, or CrossFit athletes who have taken some time off from training and come back weeks, months, or even years later and try to push themselves as hard as they did when they had been training.
Beginners who have never exercised, or even those who have exercised but with low intensity.
There even seems to be some "non-exercise risk factors" that could lead a person to developing rhabdo.
Factors in the Development of Exertional Rhabdomyolysis (Brown DO, Thomas; 2004)
Athlete's experience and fitness level
Type (concentric vs eccentric)
Sickle cell trait
High ambient temperature
What are Symptoms of Rhabdo?
dark, red, or tea colored urine
weakness of affected muscles
weight gain from water retention
joint aches and pains
muscle tenderness or aching
It is important that if you have any combination of these symptoms that you see your doctor and have your creatinine kinase (CK) levels tested, as well as your kidney function to make sure no kidney damage has occurred.
2) "Hydrate your body adequately, especially after exercise. Serious athletes are at risk of dehydration and possibly rhabdomyolysis. Drinking large amounts of water after exercising can help your kidneys flush out the myoglobin." (http://www.ehow.com/how_5653026_avoid-rhabdomyolysis.html)
Please know at CFMG our #1 priority is safety. Our job is to help you become stronger, faster, and healthier. We would never try to put you in harm’s way. This is why we prescribe "On Ramp" workouts for those who need to scale workouts down or are just getting started with CrossFit. We also offer a free filtered water source so our members can continue to hydrate before, during, and after their workout. Please know that "rhabdomyolysis can develop at any level of physical exertion" (Brown DO, Thomas; 2004) so if you feel like you need to scale the WOD down, you probably should.
