    Question for my wife

    Ok, so my wife has history with fitness (mostly running, volleyball, high intensity yoga) - She'd like to get into lifting with me, but she has very bad joints in her arms (Hypermobility) - What would the best ways be to deal with that and make sure she doesn't hurt herself, and isn't sore for days after weight training? Specifically her shoulders and elbows are very affected by this. What would be workouts that minimally affect her joints?

    Thanks

    I don’t experience hyper mobility,but it is my understanding that it is caused by loose ligaments. Strengthening her stabilizing muscles seems to be key. Since I don’t have firsthand experience, I’m going to direct you to an old thread. I wouldn’t try to resurrect a zombie thread, but scroll almost to the bottom of the thread. Redwolf1981 gives weight lifting advice for hyper mobility that he reports came from his PT. It looked like it was probably solid advice to me. I’m also posting a link to an article that may be helpful.
