A simple rhabdo question

From reading posts it seems like rhabdo is always lurking and can strike anyone from a noob in his first WOD to a bona fide firebreather.

Is this people's consensus? Without being facetious, is there a way to minimize the risk? E.g., if I regularly do GHD without a problem, am I more or less at risk than someone who does them infrequently? Or does it matter?

Read this post: http://www.board.crossfit.com/showthread.php?t=38220 (WFS)

It's a sticky from the affiliate section on avoiding rhabdo.

Re: A simple rhabdo question

If you've gradually built up capacity for something like GHD situps or jumping pullups or KB swings, you're very unlikely to get rhabdo from a single workout as compared to someone who's never done GHD situps....unless you do something stupid like doing 150 in a workout when your previous max volume was 50.

Re: A simple rhabdo question

No. Rhabdo isn't "always lurking."

Stupidity in programming and/or self-control is though.

Thanks for the responses. Truth be told, I've not let fear of rhabdo scare me away from WODs or movements, but I also don't aspire to breath fire.

Well, you should let it scare you away from stupidly programmed workouts. Just because someone writes something up on a board or on CF.com doesn't mean you have to do it.

Re: A simple rhabdo question

Sound advice. A lot of people get swept up in the group dynamic and rhetoric and do things ill-advised.

Personally, I do my own "programming," if you can call it that.
