Should you breathe in or out when you need power? Video Below!

As I was editing my Q&A Highlights video for my Core Wellness coaching students, I picked one out to share here on the blog that I think will help a lot of people.

It’s about whether you should breathe in or out when doing an exercise like the lunge or squat or anything that requires power.

Basically, there’s a time for both.  Sometimes you have to brace but you should always be ABLE to breathe functionally during any training activity.

If you have to raise your shoulders and collar bone while you’re in an exercise then you are not ready for that exercise or you are too fatigued and losing your good form.

Watch the video below and let me know what you think or ask me your questions in the comments below.
