For what it’s worth, I’ve heard the call/response to Kelly’s Q ‘How much ROM do we need’ as ‘All of it’. So, we all should be accessing all the available range from our joints. The crucial thing is that we need stability through that range as well – so I might say that there’s no such thing as too much flexibility, there’s just a problem if there’s a lack of stability. Hypermobiles therefore need more stabilising work than the stiffer ones amongst us, who need more mobilising work.
There’s a MWOD video on hypermobility from a month or two back. To paraphrase (seek the source, though) Kelly was suggesting that sliding surface mobs would be much more appropriate for hypermobiles than the joint capsule mobs that I love…
