Inner Circle Updates
My Last webinar recording on “Working with the Hypermobile Athlete” is now available to watch. In this presentation, I’m joined with my colleague at Champion, Dave Tilley, to discuss our approach to working with hypermobile athletes. Dave works with a lot of gymnasts, so has a great perspective on the topic.
This webinar will cover:
- How do you assess for hypermobility, rather than just flexibility or soft tissue mobility
- How does rehabilitation differ for the hypermobile athletes
- The role of fatigue and capacity in working with hypermobility athletics
- How we manage the fine line between hypermobility and instability

If you have any interest in baseball performance, training, or rehabilitation, you are going to want to check out my new website at EliteBaseballPerformance.com.
The mission of the site is to provide cutting edge, but trustworthy, information to enhance baseball performance. There’s too much crap on the internet right now about baseball. I want to fix this and create an ultimate resource for every baseball player, parent, coach, rehab specialist, and strength specialist.
I’ve developed an amazing advisory board and contributors like Dr. James Andrews and Dr. Glenn Fleisig of ASMI, MLB players Josh Beckett and Craig Breslow, MLB athletic trainers Stan Conte and Ken Crenshaw, and other amazing people like Eric Cressey, Alan Jaeger, Paul Reddick, Lantz Wheeler and more.
We have a bunch of great articles, resources we recommend, and even some educational programs available already.
