    I have a lot of hyper mobility in my body and this video has given me a lot of insight into how and what to train when it comes to stability.
    Pretty much most of the advice I see, treats every joint problem as a lack of mobility and so the solution is to stretch the hell out of everything, so you can imagine how that would make the problem worse.
    Do you have anymore advice, for strength training for hyper mobile bodies? Like I said, it's hard to find quality wisdom and so I'd appreciate any help you could provide.

  7. JEFF…I am hyper mobile and it's getting hard to sleep at night and pain is so bad sometimes. Weight training seems a to make it worse. I would love for u to do more videos on joint stability exercises.
