Studies on muscular strength in individuals with EDS?
Awesome job. Keep up the good work and remember not to overstrain yourself. I got inspired because of your thread to increase my cardio as well. My workout was getting stagnant and need some changes.

I know it is a while since this thread was active but found it searching for EDS and resistance training and found this very useful. I am a UK physiotherapist and I have treated a number of people with EDS over the years however we are often referred people with an acute problem and not given the time to develop and train patients/clients through a progressive strengthening programme as you have described.
As has been mentioned there is little research to provide specific evidence or concepts as to what we as professionals should be advising and formulating with our treatment advice. Over the last few years I have taken an increasing interest in kinetic control principles (http://www.kineticcontrol.com/) that is a model that uses specific structured movement tests to determine dysfunction and thus facilitate the physios ability to correct and improved movement patterns, therefore improving pain and reducing the risk of reinjury for patients.
I have a strong interest in strength and conditioning having worked closely with many coaches and as various levels of sport from amateur teams to elite athletes and also some time with disability sports (particularly challenging was working with cerebral palsy football teams) so I am intrigued to know further down the line how you are doing?
My experience would tell me with EDS that you are doing exactly the right things with your training as to summarise simply:
1. EDS causes hypermobility of collagen fibres
2. Joints inherently have increased laxity resulting in increased risk of acute injury and chronic degeneration due to excessive sheering forces on the joints
3. Kinetic control theory states to improve stability require efficient motor control/muscular strength
4. Resistance training (with the correct form and neuromuscular control) is the only way to significantly improve strength
I have not been able to find any evidence as yet whether type 3 EDS has any impact on acute muscle fibres, perhaps there has been no research as yet?! But as I said I would love to hear an update on how you are progressing?
