pressups .. breathing techniques

#1
anyone got any tips?

i use to hold my breath when i was doin em... which was a bad thing to do coz ya get fatigued a lot quicker

i found that exhalin wen i lower meself, and inhalin wen i press up is the best way... i can get a lot more out before i have to stop.

in my 'training book' for weights and stuff,

it says, you should be breathing in on the easier part ie, coming down, and exhaling during the difficult part, coming up.

it's like this because when you breath in, your chest expands, it uses muscles, and energy or whatever, and you can concentrate your strength much better when your body doesn't have to do 'two energy consuming things at once'


but i like to think if i'm blowing out when going up, it's like a small jet pack, and whilst giving me a little lift, i'm getting rid of that heavey c02, so making myself that little bit lighter.

I think I used to breath on the way down and breath again on the way up, breathing is something you have to remember to do otherwise your press ups just turn into an ugly mess.
