Re: rhabdo???

Antibiotics or statins?

I have heard the male/racehorse thing but I don't believe the language read only; it was something like most common in...

Re: rhabdo???

It is not medication related according to my doctors. Just overdid it...I'm now admitted in the hospital on my 4th bag of IV fluids. Hopefully the levels will be down enough tomorrow to go home!

Re: rhabdo???

Thank you Ian! CK levels are going down, just waiting on the doctor to review them and see if I can go home! Lesson learned---I will probably not do pull ups ever again!! Not worth it in my opinion!

Julie I would highly recommend you look at changing your programming all together. This "go as hard as you can all the time" mentality is clearly not the bes for you - 2 cases in just over 6 months is ridiculous.

Back way off and look at Pavel power to the people, rite of passage, and program minimum.

You have got to break this cycle before you cause even more damage.

Re: rhabdo???

Julie, there are actually some medical conditions that predispose to rhabdomyolysis. just doing pull ups, even lots of pull ups (assuming that you are not doing negatives, of course), really shouldn't give you Rhabdomyolysis. by strong suggestion would be to visit a physician, probably a kidney specialist, and ask for a workup specifically looking for underlying genetic or metabolic things that might predispose to this problem. Expect a bit of lab work, some of it probably expensive, as well as a muscle biopsy.

Good luck. Let us know how things turn out. We really are interested in really do hope the best for you.

What is Pavel power to the people? The scary thing is that I was not "overdoing it" in my opinion. It did not feel difficult and I was not more fatigued than normal. I agree that I will need to change my approach since this has happened.

Bingo, plans have already been made to see a rheumatologist after I get out since they think it may have an autoimmune factor. I have Celiac disease which is an autoimmune disorder and they said that there could be a link somewhere that we need to investigate. I completely agree, as does my primary care physician, that this shouldn't happen just from doing pull ups. Frustrating none the less since I have been active all my life and I absolutely hate being bed bound! Thank you for the get well wishes and I will keep you guys posted....hopefully I can figure out a way to keep incorporating crossfit into my workout regime without causing any further damage since I really do enjoy it and the benefits, rhabdo aside.

Re: rhabdo???

Power to the people is a book on weightlifting written by Pavel Tsatsouline. It's a good book (I own it and used the program), though I think Starting Strength is superior. I would get SS first then PTP.

Ahh, what are your goals?
