3: Build up your MUSCLES
If you had more muscle strength around a hypermobile joint then would be more stable. Don‘t worry resistance training wont turn you into Arnold Schwarzenegger overnight girls. Gaining a little bit more protective muscle than you currently have then you will be able to force your way out of dangerous positions.
It’s quite simple, if your joints are buckling under the pressure you NEED more muscle tension. The bigger the engines the easier you will find it to tense u
4: Dynamic Stretching
I know, I know STEP 1 says no stretching.
Their is a world of difference between tension reducing stretching, and dynamic stretching. As dynamic stretching:
-> Increases co-ordination
-> Increases stabilising tension at the end range of motion.
-> Can even help you with STEP 3, as it makes your muscles work.
In other words it is a form of moving that makes you more skillfull at moving in and out of dangerous positions. It also increase body-awareness which any yoga instructor will tell you is always a good thing. A good examples of an exercise methodology that includes a lot of dynamic stretching is vinyasa yoga.
(The caveat to this Step is that you must ensure you move your joint in a controlled fashion, it is best to avoid the type of stretching called ballistic. As a general rule the more you can control your joint the more stable it will be and the more it will be able to protect you as you move.)
