What breathing techniques, if any, do you weightlifting gurus use ?
Any suggestions for breathing techniques that helps, stamina-wise, for completing heavy sets. After all, what could be more demoralizing (gym-wise) than going to failure too early ?
For chest excersises I usually breathe in pushing out, then breath out while letting the weight down -I'm pretty sure that's helping my chest out bigtime.
For several other excersises, it only feels natural to me the other way around. So, what about breathing techniques for other excercises of heavy sets.
Over the summer, if my memory is correct, I read at a hotel gym that for any exercises involving barbells you should breathe in while initially excerting force, then breathe out letting the weight down. "For any exercises involving barbells" somehow seemed a little too general though.
So again, what breathing techniques, if any, do you weightlifting gurus use ?
