” date=”1253859728″][quote author="Jay Turner" date="1253852326"]Yeah I currently have an athlete who has hyper flexibility. I have commented on this in another thread but I may as well ask it here. What can you do to correct the “hyper-flexible” athlete?
Most athletes that are hyper-flexible…I always see them doing a seated spread eagle stretch with their chest pasted to the floor or something crazy like that. If they are hyperflexible, just stop stretching for range of motion. If the range is there, don’t static stretch. Check range on each stretch for 2seconds or so but if there is hyper-flexibility, don’t go holding stretching they don’t need for 30seconds.[/quote]So you’re saying with this particular athlete, I should have her exclusively do dynamic stretches? If so, how does this help her?
