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

As someone pointed out upthread, NOT putting your clients in the hospital is sort of a baseline for competent trainers. No matter how out of shape or ignorant they are, you should be able to devise a...

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

Sure. But a trainer giving a newbie a workout with 100 GHD situps is like a car dealer encouraging you to take your new Toyota to the track. And then telling you it's your own stupid fault when you...

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

Has CFHQ shown any interest whatsoever in developing that kind of information? I certainly agree that it would be helpful, but it's not going to happen without CFHQ's involvement.

As for...

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

It's difficult to use common sense when you've never encountered a situation before and have no point of reference.

Like when your trainer tells you to do 100 GHD situps. You've never done them...

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

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

I can visualize a great ad campaign in which the National Kidney Foundation and CFHQ team up: train hard, but train smart. Maybe co-sponsor ultramarathon events -- mentioned upthread as another...

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

How much has Crossfit HQ donated to the National Kidney Foundation? If they *really* want to promote rhabdo awareness -- rather than using the danger factor as a marketing tool -- a group like that...

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

That's 54 threads in five years. Not all of which are directly about specific rhabdo incidents, and a few of which are about incidents *not* related to Crossfit. That's actually not a huge number of...

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

Ow.

I'll bet she's in a real hurry to go back, too...

If I were an affiliate owner, I'd put rhabdo avoidance very high on my list of goals.

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

The problem is that -- among Crossfitters -- beginners are among the most likely rhabdo victims, often due to poor programming and/or poor scaling. So you take people who are new to intense exercise,...

Drink lots (I mean LOTS) of liquids. Follow medical advice to the letter. Expect it will take weeks, not days, before return to previous strength and fitness.
