    The rhabdomyolysis article is TERRIFYING. (I don’t do CrossFit, but I do — and have for many years — work out intensely, with a special focus on building upper-body strength. I was taught to know and respect my limits, and not overtrain, but I still read articles like that with some anxiety, like, “Am I doing this? Could the horrible thing this article is about happen to me?” I’ve never been injured, but I suppose when you lift heavy weights it is always good to be on guard and not be afraid to go lighter or do fewer sets/reps if it starts to feel wrong.)
