Just wondering what the proper squat technique is for a 1RM?

Do you exhale on the ascent, or hold your breath?

Hold your air in you belly the entire time while pushing your gut out against your belt.

Breathe once you get a rack command.

Yup. You should be purple by the time you hear the rack command.

Take several deep, deep breaths before you start to wrap your knees or set your suit.
The point is to get as much oxygen in the bloodstream as possible.
Then, a heartbeat before you break the bar out of the rack take in as much air as you possibly can and hold it.
It helps you stay tight. Think of it like a tire. The more air it has in it the harder/firmer it is. It has no "give" to it.
Your body is the same way under load. If you have any give, anywhere, that's where the weight is going to push you to, that "soft" spot.

raw take a big breath, hold it, keep everything tight and go........... with more gear take less air, too much air in a 2-ply+ suit will put pressure in your head

Well wouldn't it also be a lot harder to even take more air in with a lot of gear on?
