During a recent flight, I purchased one of my fav reads, Fitness Magazine. I came across an article entitled “Workouts Gone Wrong.” It tells the story of a 40-year-old chef in Colorado who ended up in the hospital after a high-powered circuit training session. She was diagnosed with exertional rhabdomyolsis. She spent three days in the hospital hooked up to a saline IV to flush her kidneys! Her experience, per the article, is an extreme example~ but warns that it can be easy to get “carried away” with today’s hard-core fitness trends.
