isometrics and hypermobility

Hello Paul,

I have a question for you. A couple of years ago I bought your e-book 7 seconds to isometrics.

I find it very difficult to apply your principles, especially because i have troubles with my ligaments. I got diagnosed with hypermobile joints. Not to the extreme, but i was advised to grow muscle. Not so easy...

I tought isometrics were the solution, especially because you say that they are completely safe. Though when i try them, old injuries re-occur and i am in more pain.

Do you have advise for me? Did you already advised some clients in kind of a
rheumatic situation.

I would really appreciate some advice from you. I did already a lot of research on the internet, but i can not find useful advice in combination with isometrics on this field.

Kind regards.

Hypermobility Advice

Thanks for contacting me. Unfortunately none of my programs are designed to diagnose or treat a medical condition and I can't give medical advice out via email, which is essentially what you are asking for.

With that I can tell you that Isometrics performed correctly are safe and further that I have used them in a clinical setting and under supervision to build muscles in my patients with similar conditions to yours as you described.

You mention when you try Isometrics old injuries re-occur. Can you tell me more about that, give me an example so I can better understand your particular situation.
All the best,
