Hey, I'm 18 (well, in two months) and I have the hypermobility type of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (in short, too elastic collagen). Recently, I've started strength- and cardiovascular training to improve my musculature in order to compensate for my weak tissue. Since it's a reasonably rare condition, the medical advice I've been given is very, very lacking (since no one knows anything about the condition), but the general consensus seems to be that strength training is good if you can manage it. I've been horribly, horribly weak my entire life. I'm around 183 cm tall (+- 1,5 centimeters) and weigh about 78 kilos. I've got a barbell and trained for a while, but I've come to realize that what I lift is utterly ridiculously light; I bench press a fantastic 25 kilograms, deadlift an astounding 45, and overhead press a tremendous 20-25. These numbers are, as far as I can tell, absolutely ridiculously low; even if I was anorectic I should be able to lift more than that. Obviously I realize that my condition does affect muscular strength, but I wonder if any amount of studies has been done regarding strength in individuals with my condition, and particularly the potential improvement in strength that could be made. I've got a whole slew of doctors, but no one can really tell me anything about the condition. I'd be thankfull if anyone can find anything.
