Well, first time on this forum, definitely seems like a change of atmosphere from most forums i've visits that are made up of 18 year old gamers and internet tough guys. Anyway, i've got a sort of odd predicament. I have joint hypermobility syndrome, which means my ligaments are lax and therefore my joints are fairly supple and injury prone. Unfortunately, I did not learn I had this until after a major sprain during track practice and I didn't realize the severity of doing high impact exercises until after 5 years of power lifting. Anyway, long story short, after years of depression (which is a totally different story), years of bad choices, years of poor posture, total disregard for my health and well being , my entire body is pretty bad. Especially my shoulders. I have trouble keeping them level and not popping out of the shoulder daily. So i'm trying to find whole body workouts that are fairly low impact, focus on using the body as one system, and help to promote balance and coordination. I've heard pilates and yoga are pretty good and someone even suggested isometrics but I wanted to get some more feed back before I do anything. Also, did ask the doctor, he recommended low impact exercises and referred me to a health clinic that deals with physical therapy/physical training for people with orthopedic problems but my insurance does not cover it and at this time (with my non-profit job) I cannot afford a $140 a session so yeah..thats it for my first post...thanks for any input!
