MUSC Health's Dr. Alec DeCastro recently appeared on Channel 2 to discuss a disease that may affect athletes participating in CrossFit. Hot days with intense workouts may put participants at risk for a muscle disease called Rhabdomyolysis.

Symptoms include:

- extreme muscle soreness, more than after usual workout, making it hard to walk or move

- dehydration and similar effects of dehydration: dizziness, fatigue

- dark or brown (Coca-Cola colored) urine from chemicals in the kidneys
