A quick search of PubMed for "exercise induced rhabdomyolysis" yields 181 hits, starting in 1966.

Searching for "exertional rhabdomyolysis" yields 245 hits, starting in 1963.

Searching for "exercise induced muscle damage" yields 778 hits, starting in 1970.
I'm sure the armed forces, marathon, and ultramarathon literatures have quite a few studies on this topic too.

I personally heard of muscle damage due to exercise prior to CrossFit. It doesn't really matter that I didn't know the formal medical name - it sure looks like others did.
