The book I’m co-writing with Dr. Garrett Smith has a section written by him about Rhabdo. He’s seen his fair share of it as a long-term competitive powerlifter and personal trainer (he even trains people who compete in Crossfit games and shit like that). He’s had a couple of trips to ER for it himself. It’s funny and awesome – basically trashing the fitness community that is so obsessed with extremely intense bouts of exercise. In some circles Rhabdo is seen as a rite of passage of sorts. Like you ain’t tough if you’ve never pushed yourself to that point, haha. I will watch out for Coke urine indeed!
