Re: Why wasn't I informed of this glorious program earlier?

Zach, I strongly urge you to pull back and slow down a bit. Search "rhabdomyolysis" - if you're on your first few CF workouts, it's likely that your muscles will break down so quickly that the kidneys will be harmed. This is acknowledged by CrossFit (i.e., I'm not making this up!).

From healthline.com:
"Rhabdomyolysis is the breakdown of muscle fibers resulting in the release of muscle fiber contents into the circulation. Some of these are toxic to the kidney and frequenty result in kidney damage."
