The former competitive bodybuilder and 2013 Ms. Olympia winner Dana Linn Bailey was hospitalized after overtraining during CrossFit training but the good news is she’s ok…
Dana Linn explained in her Instagram post that she gave herself Rhabdo which is a rare syndrome that can result in kidney failure if not treated on time. She was doing GHD sit-ups for CrossFit training and pushed herself too hard during 3 rounds of two minutes and didn’t realize there was something wrong until about five days after her workout.
Her stomach was really swollen and decided to visit the Doctor, only to find out her kidneys were not functioning. But Dana Linn Bailey is making a full recovery and has some words of advice for anyone just starting out…
“If you are doing an exercise that is a little bit newer to you or you don’t do often. Take your time and try to step outside of competition mode. Listen to your body. And hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!”
Dana wrote the following on her Instagram post along with a picture of her in the hospital…
“Who woulda thought, OVERTRAINING is actually a real thing?!!! #mindblown 🤯🤯🤯
SWIPE to READ STORY. I’ve sorta waiting till I found out everything is getting better and I am going to make a full recovery. And my last lab results showed significant improvement. Everyone give a read because this can happen to anyone whether you are new to lifting or have been training for 15+ years…if you are competing like me, this can happen to you!!
THANK YOU ALL for all your get well messages!!! I’ll be making a FULL recovery in a couple more days and hopefully back to lifting”
We wish Dana Linn Bailey a speedy recovery so she can get back to training like usual.
