Thank you for your interest in the article.

I will start by saying that the workout in our report was a
modification on a crossfit workout
. I too came across some reports in
the grey literature (albeit not as many) . In fact, there is an
article in the crossfit journal that warns of rhabdomyolysis and
provides 4 cases as examples. However, I agree that there is no other
peer-reviewed literature on short-duration high intensity workouts and
rhabdomyolysis.
Quote:
Anecdotally, in the past 2 years our emergency room was started to see
about 2 cases per month of rhabdomyolysis mainly from crossfit and
p90x. So, I agree that they may be increasing.
These cases are mainly
in people with intermediate conditioning. I hypothesize that it would
be difficult for a high level athlete or someone completely out of
shape to get EIR.

The question is what to do? Crossfit is very clear about the risk and
provides a graduated program. They also suggest training from experts
who will guide the trainees through the workouts. There has never to
my knowledge been a case of permanent renal failure related to EIR of
any kind. But is it only a matter of time? We know in crush injuries
rhabdo can cause renal failure or even death. Is there something
fundamentally different?
There is a commentary on the article you may find interesting:

In the end it is my hope that the article will raise suspicions in the
ER for EIR.

I'm speechless after reading the amount of FAIL in the last 2 pages posted on here. I can't believe some of that stuff that Andrew found.

Also, that youtube video was absolutely priceless...

Here's a bit of CrossFit trivia: Brian MacKenzie competed in the 2008 CF Games. Would anyone care to guess his placement out of 196 male competitors on the 730 meter trail run?
