0

Ninjas, gymnasts, and Cirque du Soleil. What do they all have in common? Besides all things that I wish was or something I wish I partook in, they all utilize amazing forms of acrobatics and movements in their chosen art.

Alliteration aside, progressing beyond the push-up is something all youth athletes and fitness enthusiasts want to do, yet most haven’t primed their bodies from a physical point of view.

Thoughts on Hypermobility

2

It wasn’t until coming to Cressey Performance that I’ve run into a good chunkful of clients, athletes, and regular people who are hypermobile or display signs of hypermobility. The idea of hypermobility and having too much range of motion due to unchecked ligamentous and/or capsular laxity is something that is rather foreign to me. Although I thought it was always […]
