Re: Another Rhabdo victim - long post

I would guess something along the lines of what Sean said....

Your dominant arm will typically put up more resistance when you're tired which leads to more eccentric damage being accrued in the eccentric portion of the movement.

Re: Another Rhabdo victim - long post

Thanks Sean and Steven - it does seem obvious now that the non-dominant arm would be the worse hit. Hadn't even thought of it. Meanwhile, legs and abs weren't even remotely sore. I will probably say goodbye forever to anything with 100 reps. Not worth it.

Re: Another Rhabdo victim - long post

Don't worry about your kidneys they are fine. If you are peeing clear you are ok. Severe rhado would start with brown urine and progress to anuria within 24-48 hours. CK of 27,000 is impressive but not too bad from a renal stand point. 300,000- 500,000 would be a big deal. Asymptomatic marathon runners can be in the 15,000K range, granted the muscle mass of their legs is much larger then your arm. In terms of adjusting volume, if you scale things so that your finishing time is in the top 25% of crossfiters you'll be safe.

Thanks Jon - I appreciate that info - I was never really sure how "bad" it was. That puts in into perspective.
