Rhabdomyalisis at CFC / Workout: June 5th, 2013

Thanks to Ed, Matt and Erika for coming over for an early week workout. Quick and dirty tonight. 
Thoughts are with Mike S. as he gets over a case of Rhabdomyalisis at St Luke's. this was the result of a workout of 100reps of 135lbs presses and squats he put himself through on Friday. 
If you don't know what "rhabdo" is I urge you to get to know the symptoms because it can in its worst  form be deadly by the way of renal failure. 
After a very hard workout if you have very severe muscle pain, swelling and your urine is brown. Get to the hospital. You just tore your muscles apart so badly they released a bunch of bad stuff (myoglobin specifically) that can cause rental failure. 
In retrospect, it very well could have been rhabdo that Sarah had last Monday night after the "Murph" on memorial day. We thought it was a stomach bug, but no one else around her had anything of it or contracted it from her subsequently. Vomiting and severe nausea can be signs, with severe muscle aches, swelling, fever, and again brown urine. Too coincidental. Be careful, stay safe. 


Warmup: 1000m row / dynamic / hip mobility 

Strength: Cleans 3-3-3-3-3 full reset after each rep

4 rounds 500m row
10 toes to bar
