ABC News affiliate WSET.com (Lynchburg, VA) has an article on rhabdomyolysis and exercise - specifically working out with P90X, an high-intensity exercise program.  Rhabdomyolysis is the breakdown of muscle fibers resulting in the release of muscle fiber contents (myoglobin) into the bloodstream. Some of these are harmful to the kidney and frequently result in kidney damage.

Rhabdomyolysis is a potentially deadly condition that can be triggered by overdoing exercise/workout programs.
