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.

Your making his point...I'm not sure what your intended point was, though. The average layperson has not heard of the term "rhabdomyolysis" before CrossFit, but many people with any common sense are aware that you can suffer "muscle damage due to exercise".

I'm also not sure what the point of posting those inflammatory threads from Perf Menu was...pretty tasteless. There was an entry from a thread I was involved in and only part of the context was given...typical.
