Just curious if you all hold your breath while doing sets of 5's in the military press. I seem to hold it for the first 3 to stay tight, and then take a breath for 4 and 5.

How do you breathe in on the push? I can breathe out or hold my breath on the push, but it seems almost impossible to take a deep breath while pushing weight overhead. I defer to your extensive powerlifting knowledge, and if there is a secret to it and it works, I wanna know about it. :D

SHIT NO, I holler and make everyone look at me to show what kind of a beast I am.





Nah just kidding, I breathe out on the way up.
