    Hi, I have some hypermobility and as a consequence have dislocated both shoulders which makes pressing difficult as my right side of my scapula is unstable and right shoulder is properly grindee. I do broga and it’s helping,any more tips on pressing with poor scapula control? secondly my joints click a lot especially my ankles but if it’s a joint it clicks. most stuff I’ve read say if there’s
    no pain there’s nothing to worry about. I personally feel that with the hypermobility I seem to put a lot of stress through my joints as opposed to the muscles. Any tips on this?

    If you don’t have good control over your scapula, or any joint/motion, you just need to work on it more. And frequency is king. Like several times a day. As there is not that just inherently makes someone have bad control over a muscle/joint. So all the broga/activations stuff around your scapula and GH joint, just practice those motions with as much control/intent as you can, 4-5 times a day. As for clicking – if possible, I would try to avoid training the ranges heavy where there is the loudest clicking (may not be feasible, but do the best you can). And same advice as above, practice controlled motions in those clicking joints (in the ranges that don’t click) as frequently as possible
