    Jumping workouts+hip problems?

    I have hips that are, for lack of a better term, double-jointed. I can "pop" my hips out and in without dislocating them. Usually it's a fairly painless stretching feeling, but...

    I just finished the Hero's Journey workout plan, and I realized as I got towards the end that I was really struggling with jumping lunges and jumping squats, because they put a lot of pressure on my hips, making them almost pop out on landing and launching, and it ends up really hurting both my hips and knees because I have to use my knees to stabilize myself. I had to psych myself up to the last day to face the pain.

    I really like the gains I've made with this workout plan, and I'd like to do it again, but I have to do something to protect my hips. I'm an EMT and do a lot of heavy lifting and moving at work, I can't risk a hip injury taking me out. Are there extra exercises I can do to help stabilize my hips, or should I just stop jumping and do regular lunges and squats instead?

    It's only my opinion: when i have a problem with an exercise i modify it.
    It seems to me a good way to do more or less that kind of exercise anyway but without hurting me.

    In your case yes i'll do lunges and squats instead of jumping lunges and jumping squats, without feeling guilty

      Thanks, Fremen! I'll modify it in the future.
