WARNING … Safety first!!
High intensity exercise must be approached cautiously in the beginning, a gradual ramp up of intensity is necessary to allow muscles cells to adapt to the new demands being placed on them. Failure to do so, opens the door to a life threatening condition, know as ‘Rhabdomyolysis’. In short, the muscle cells are damaged flooding the bloodstream with toxins that can overwhelm the kidneys as they attempt to cleanse the blood, leading to potential shutdown. CrossFit can cause Rhabdomyolysis. It is important that you start at a reduced intensity. Brown urine, complete muscle weakness and/or swelling of joints are warning signs of ‘Rhabdo’. If you develop these symptoms, seek medical assistance IMMEDIATELY.
