I have a sincere question regarding breathing whilst lifting or pushing weights.
For example, when I do chest bench pressing, I take a deep breath just before I am about to push the weight upwards...but during the push movement, should I be holding my breath or slowly breathing out?
Another example, when I do bicep curls, I have been taking a deep breath as I am about to lift the barbell and weights and holding my breath as I lift it up. But is that wrong? Should I be breathing out the exact same time as I am lifting the weight?
Will holding your breath throughout the push or lift movement cause a lot of pressure to build up around the backside area? Would breathing out whilst pushing or lifting the weight ease the pressure on the body and backside area? Because I don't want my body to act as if I am sitting on the toilet straining as it can aggravate my Hemorrhoids.
So what's the proper way to breathe? Hold breath, or slowly breathe out?
