Thanks so much for posting! Nice to see things didn't go the worse for you. Out of curiosity, were there any lasting impacts?
    You're not going to get rhabdo doing any kind of reasonable protocol to increase your pull-ups. It really really requires pushing through your limits. I'm sorry about what happened to the O.P., but this is not a real source of major concern outside of crossfit and overzealous/under-intelligent trainers pushing you to do more than your body knows it can handle.

If you are unfamiliar with this illness or work with a trainer, please take a moment to read my story and share it with your friends and family.

      I am so sorry you experienced this and thank goodness you are ok!!! That is quite a story. Thank you for posting. Hope you can back in the game without any lasting effects. Do you think you'll go for the marathon next year?

        Uuuuhhh... Strength training... Risks? Care to elaborate?

        Maybe I'm all freaked out after reading this post. Ive decided that I'm going to get on a serious strength training program after my November race but I need to know my risks before I dive full-on into this. Thanks!
