In this interview, Nikki chats with strength and mobility coach Jessie Rard from Twisted Fox Training about training with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) and hypermobility.

They discuss:

  • What EDS is and basic considerations for pain reduction and injury prevention if you have this diagnosis or you know that you are hypermobile 
  • Passive (stretching) versus active (strengthening) ranges of motion and how to assess for and close the gap between the two
  • The importance of stability and strength training when you are hypermobile 
  • Why you can have hypermobility and still pursue athletic activities, including circus, martial arts, and more.
  • Why you don't need to fear your range of motion if you are hypermobile or work with hypermobile individuals
