    very interesting. Knew breathing was important, but this gives a lot of information that makes more sense. May help me to get athletes to buy into it a little more! Thanks

    None of this is particularly surprising.  In fact, a lot of this is quite familiar.  But to see it accumulated and supported by cited research is very nice indeed.  I'm excited to see where they go with potential implementation into FMS.
