Thats like saying you got rhabdo from walking. I run into alot of anti-coagulate/ statin/ non-damaging rhabdo cases looking for Crossfit rhabdo cases; there's about an equal amount with the Crossfit rhabs and most of this type hits the calves. Definitely lawyer inspired, and definitely amateur job done on their behalf. If they really wanted to legitimately investigate it, instead of making a goofy dogma video they should have just emailed me.
I thought it was hilarious, since this thread is about re-reading the crossfit journal and correcting the bullshit, that they strategically mentioned not "programming jumping pull-ups for newbies" in the video
Not what the Crossfit Journal and Crossfit.com says:
Crossfit Journal and Crossfit.com says scale regular pullups with jumping pullups if the client is new and can't do regular pullups
in a wod, especially with 100 pullups prescribed [the wods that induce rhabdo]. CFJ even says scale Barbara (a rhabdo wod) with jumping pullups... Yet they say in this video they never have "newbies do jumping pullups"?
Case studies to look up:
"Acute swollen legs due to rhabdomyoloysis: initial management as deep vein thrombosis may lead to acute renal failure.
" Mallinson, Goldsmith, Higgins, Venning, Ackrill. British Medical Journal Nov 1994
"Acute compartment syndrome resulting from anticoagulant treatment
." Hay, Allen, Barnes. British Medical Journal 1992
