    Thank you thank you for an excellent article…will share with my staff for sure! So, I am confused by:”The Threshold-Breathing-Continuum: Parasympathetic diaphragm breathing is used in low-threshold strategies. Breath holding and valsalva is used in high-threshold strategies.” I believe you differentiate between functional and dysfunctional high-threshold strategies. Is valsalva ever a functional stategy? I know it is taught a lot in weight lifting. Non-weightlifting-Pilates-instructor is curious. Thanks!
