The purpose of this study is to:

  1. develop a normative database for serum creatine kinase (CK) responses to basic military training (BMT);
  2. determine the incidence of exertional rhabdomyolysis (ER) among a large cohort of recruits undergoing BMT;
  3. assess the impact of climate on the incidence of ER during BMT;
  4. determine the incidence of candidate genes that may be associated with an increased risk of ER.
