Many fitness and rehabilitation experts would agree that diaphragmatic breathing is the most fundamental demonstration of core function. As such, once proper breathing patterns are established, clients will have a solid foundation to further develop core function. If we consider the notion that breathing is a fundamental competency of core stability, we must be certain that breathing patterns are healthy before progressing our clients to more advanced core exercises. This article will review the concept of core stability and discuss the role of proper respiratory mechanics on core function. Verf.-Referat
