Because of the generally greater degree of laxity in the joints, active stability becomes very important. Stretching is probably not a good idea for people with this condition. As much as it feels good, stretching is for decreasing tension in tight tissues–specifically, muscles–and with stretchier ligaments, chances are you’ll end up stretching ligaments instead of your muscles. Stretching—whether you’re hypermobile or not—generally does not help with this. This program is all about static and dynamic stretching of hip flexor muscles. Doing this program might stretch not your hip flexors but the ligaments of your hip and it may cause more harm than good. Hope this suits you well.
