How to breathe properly during exercise is one of those fitness tips that isn't talked about too often, yet, it's one of the most important exercise techniques you need to know how to do in order to optimize and maximize your gains. It's also a fitness factor that has some of the biggest misconceptions surrounding it, making the "best" way to breathe while working out a bit difficult to determine due to all of the conflicting information out there. We're gonna clear that up in order to clear up your breathing today. For one, the widely popular and most accepted breathing pattern for exercise, specifically breathing for weight lifting, is that you should be inhaling on your eccentrics and exhaling on your concentrics, also referred to as inhaling on your negatives and exhaling on your positives. Many guys think that this slow breathing pattern is the right way to breathe when weight lifting, but it actually is not! It's not an optimal breathing pattern at all. The main problem with it is that when you lift weights properly, that is, lifting slow and controlled, it is hard to maintain a slow breathing pattern like this. In fact, you're more likely to speed up your breathing pattern and in turn, this speeds up your weight lifting and compromises your technique by forcing fast and sloppy reps. Poor technique leads to poor muscle building results. Another common consequence of this poor breathing pattern is that it forces guys into committing the worst weight lifting sin of all time: holding their breath! You never want to hold your breath, ever!! What happens is that, instead of beginning their exhale at the height of their lift, they instead take their huge inhale breath and hold it, thinking it will help them exert more force as they push the lifting weight up. What actually happens is that they cut off the oxygen supply to their lungs and drastically drain themselves of energy. Holding your breath is a big "no no" and can also cause you to pass out. Imagine passing out while you are holding heavy weights above you. You never want that to happen, so never hold your breath!! The most optimal way to breathe while weight lifting is to simply just breathe normally! That's right, the best way to breathe while exercising and the right way to breathe while working out is to just breathe normally. Breathe as you do, normally. Not only does a normal, regular breathing pattern provide your body with adequate amounts of oxygen for optimized function, but also, this is the only breathing pattern that allows you to lift in a slow and controlled manner like you should be, without draining yourself of energy and without forcing you into fighting for air. Simply just breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth for the most optimal results possible. Inhaling through your nose and exhaling through your mouth allows for the best oxygen transport through your body which means you're optimizing your exercise and maximizing your muscle building results. It's the most natural breathing pattern possible and that's exactly the way to breathe to naturally create an optimized exercise environment for the best fitness results possible! ****************************************************************** Join the priority wait-list for "Zero To Hero | The Muscle Building Blueprint For Skinny guys!": http://www.ZeroToHeroMuscle.com Follow Me on Instagram!: http://www.instagram.com/jgfitnessofficial Subscribe To My Warrior Body Channel!: http://www.youtube.com/warriorweightloss ******************************************************************
