What is the correct way to breathe during exercising?
Proper breathing during exercises where you exert yourself such as lifting, pushing, or pulling is much easier to remember and control than during running long distance. To put it simply: always exhale on exertion. For example, when you are pushing a bench press off your chest, you exhale on the push and inhale as you bring it slowly to your chest. When you are doing a pullup, you exhale on the pulling up motion and inhale on the way down. Breathing during exertion is important in preventing internal injury such as hernia, blood vessel strain, and HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE.
