I tried out the APT pulling truck harness and got a chance to try it out, but on a sedan. My lowerbody gets a hell of a workout but my lungs get deeply exhausted. what are some breathing techniques when pulling the car?

haha - as best you can. It just takes practice. Short rapid breaths always helped me.

Short breaths is about as best you can. you dont want to take slow breaths as it will mess up your core (like being able to fill your stomach with air and push out with the abs). hopefully you aren't going too far in distance to make breathing an issue. I think no matter how yo breath you will be gassed at the end, they are a nasty exercise. If not, it will just take practice.
