Has this become the big thing lately? Just curious, seen in crop up in quite a few places here and there. Wondering why Crossfit in particular seems to be raising awareness of it.
A number of my friends (including ER physicians, internal med guys) are ultra endurance types, quite aware of what causes it, and through conversations with them over the years I'm quite puzzled that this seems to be an emphasis.
None of what most folks do on this board, EXCEPT strongman, is likely to lead to rhabdo- it's FAR more common in impact sports or excessively long duration of exertion with insufficient recovery (like 8-9 hour football workouts). And the precautionary measures that need to be taken, if it's a concern, are FAR more involved than simple exercise substitution.
Just throwing it out there, curious what people's take on it was.
