    I usually exhale when doing the lift on most - I think. Yeah, usually 'cos I'm screaming

    pretty sure thats not correct when squatting m8. you must hold your breath during the squat. it keeps the core tight & widens the base of the core, allowing more power to be transmitted

    Breathing when pushing out helps i find. Forcing everything out at one time = maximum exertian

    I find that if i am holding my breath when pushing i start to struggle with the weight but then i breath out and the weight moves (magic) LOL

    I think there is a scientific study behind it but not sure what it is
