Re: Rhabdo... 4 days after Rhabdo. URGENT

That's the only thing Steven saw, I'm just taking that straight out of his post...


All I'd like is for HQ to put a little disclaimer or scaling warning anytime a particular WOD comes up that is...

I already knew that you'd consider that 1 article sufficient. I'm pretty sure most would disagree..

Re: Rhabdo... 4 days after Rhabdo. URGENT

Well, it's a pretty big problem if every week on the injury forum we're getting posts of people who got rhabdo. And that's only a small subset of the cfitting population.

Re: Rhabdo... 4 days after Rhabdo. URGENT

That's cool. Yeah, that's really the only point I'm trying to make. That more needs to be done to inform people, especially when it comes to stuff that can potentially put you in the hospital.

Re: Rhabdo... 4 days after Rhabdo. URGENT

Horrible analogy. I'm not gonna explain this again. Everyone else seems to get it...

And on top of that, I never said anything about suing crossfit. My only point in all of this is that CF...

Re: Rhabdo... 4 days after Rhabdo. URGENT

Let's say there was an inherent danger in something as simple as ring dips - and doing high rep ring dips gave you rhabdo. But this information isn't widely known. The people at HQ know it. But...

Re: Rhabdo... 4 days after Rhabdo. URGENT

Honestly, I've been involved in athletics, working out, powerlifting, etc for almost 10 years now and I'd never even heard of the GHD situp before I started CrossFit. It's not common sense to scale...

Re: Rhabdo... 4 days after Rhabdo. URGENT

On top of that, lets just say that I own a CF gym. And I have a library of books on thousands of exercises that all of my clients are free to read. One of these books explains GHD situps and the...

Re: Rhabdo... 4 days after Rhabdo. URGENT

On paper, 100 "GHD situps" doesn't look all that intimidating. On top of that, it is not common knowledge than they are more dangerous than most crossfit exercises to the average trainee. If a...

Re: Rhabdo... 4 days after Rhabdo. URGENT

His point was basically because so many people have gotten rhabdo from doing CF, people are now more familiar with the illness. And apparently that's "spreading awareness" in a good way

Re: Rhabdo... 4 days after Rhabdo. URGENT

No I don't appreciate it. I find it downright offensive. Sarcasm/humor is one thing when you're dealing with silly stuff like trash talking towards other athletes, but in matters of life, death and...

Re: Rhabdo... 4 days after Rhabdo. URGENT

Pay more attention to the main site. Pukie is a clown with Rhabdo. Or at least he was at one point. On the old vidoes, the pictures of pukie were graphic images of his kidneys falling out dripping...
