Washington: HIITS- an exercise and weight-loss trend that involves alternating bouts of extremely vigorous exercise with brief rest periods- may be a superior way to slim down, but it can lead you to the hospital with rhabdomyolysis, it has been revealed.

Rhabdomyolysis is relatively rare condition in which muscle tissue breaks down to such an extent that toxins released into the blood stream can damage the kidneys, the ABC News reported.

Web entrepreneur, Matt Lombardi, told the publication that he just wanted to get into shape but after taking just one workout series, he landed to the hospital with rhabdomyolysis.
