The Power of Ten workout, as discussed here at The Inform Fitness Podcast, is a high-intensity, slow-motion strength training protocol closely modulated with your very own one-on-one, personal trainer.
Here in Episode 37, we discuss the potential dangers of not closely modulating a high-intensity exercise program such as CrossFit, excessive spin classes, or marathon training. Working out under very extreme conditions could result in a rare but serious health condition called rhabdomyolysis (rhabdo).
Rhabdo occurs when muscle tissue breakdown results in the release of a protein (myoglobin) into the blood that can result in kidney failure. In this episode, we explain the symptoms rhabdo, the short & long-term effects, and how can you avoid it?
