Man says one day of P90X sent him to the emergency room


NEW YORK — A man claims that his recent attempt to lose a couple of excess pounds almost cost him his health after he ended up in hospital with doctors scrambling to save his kidneys.

Matt Lombardi said he decided to try the P90X, or Power 90 Extreme, exercise regimen after he gained 20 pounds while focused on launching his college sports website.

But Lombardi says he struggled to complete the first training session, which he did on a Monday, and just days later he was admitted to hospital after contracting rhabdomyolysis, an illness associated with kidney failure and strenuous exercise.
