Hold your breath *throughout* each rep on deadlifts?

What do people do? I have found that my lumbar feels a little more secure if I stay braced (and therefore hold my breath) throughout each rep, from the concentric through to the top and the eccentric phase. By contrast, if I let out some air at the top and then take another breath in before...

To stack or not to stack??

Hi all, I have recently been trying to bring my bench press up (three plates finally around the corner!) and paying more attention to form. One of the things that I read everywhere is that your wrist and elbow joints should be stacked in the bottom position. This seems to make sense...
