Rhabdomyolysis is a condition characterized by muscle breakdown and the release of the byproducts into our blood circulation. In severe cases, it is associated with electrolyte imbalances and kidney failure.
With the resumption of many face to face exercise classes now that the pandemic has eased a little and an increase in popularity of various exercises such as HIIT, Barre, Yoga and Spin, we are seeing increasing number of cases of otherwise healthy adults presenting to the hospitals for rhabdomyolysis following their first try at Spin classes. This is often seen in fit individuals who do other forms of exercise regularly and is not confined to unfit.
Do be mindful and pace yourselves when you try out new forms of exercises that you may not be familiar with. Don’t ‘chiong’ many many classes just to get your money’s worth out of duration based trial packages at the expense of your body giving way. Listen to your body at all times. Remember the importance of warm up exercise and re-hydration even when we don’t have commanders ordering us to half water bottle drink up!
Stay safe and don’t let things spin out of control!
