  6. Drawing In Maneuver
    • Act of pulling button in towards spine
    • -Increased stabilization during exercise and increased EMG (electromyogram activity- electrical activity produced by skeletal muscles)
  7. Intramuscular Coordination
    Ability of neuromuscular system to allow optimal levels of motor unit recruitment and synchronization within a muscle
  8. Intermuscular Coordination
    Ability of neuromuscular system to allow all muscles to work together with proper activation and timing between them
