    I'm not sure who taught you isometric but it doesnt have to be pit against each other and you can breathe through it. I like pressing against a wall in various positions to strengthen joints without having them in less stable positions.

    I like dynamic tension ones, i think they are great. Theres a reason its part of a meditators relaxation techniques.

    xrunner,

    I'm getting tested for Marfans syndrome later this month, i'm tall but i'm not skinny to that degree, probably due to a healthy regime of exercise. Hyperflexibility is an indicator with that.

    Have you ever had your calc/magnesium levels checked? Are you tall and skinny? Could be a needle in a haystack.. just checking.

    Hi Gav,
    yes I had them checked and those two were fine. I'm tall but not skinny. I'm not that flexible as in Ehlers-Danlos cases which I looked up (as I did not know about) but I clearly overdid for a few years with strecthes, yoga etc. which made me too flexible whilst my muscles were shrinking due to inactivity.
    Also I think that all that inflammation that we carry may be an additional aggravating factor.
    Good luck with that testing!
