💨 Breathing 💨
Ever wondered why you hear trainers telling you when to breathe?
The way you breathe when your exercising has a big impact on your results. Your muscles need plenty of oxygen to perform at their best.
🗝 The key is to always exhale on exertion.
For example, when you complete a bench press, exhale when you push up and inhale as you bring the weight slowly to your chest. When you are doing a pull up, exhale when you're pulling up and inhale on the way down.
Anyone who hits the weights regularly has probably heard exhaling on the exertion of an exercise is the way to go.
Why? Contracting the respiratory muscles will help brace the load during heavier lifts while maintaining lumbar stability.
