A successful life coach in Arizona, Peter Winslow divides his time between helping clients achieve their goals as the owner of GoldMind, LLC, and guiding people toward managing ankylosing spondylitis (AS) as the founder of the AS Victors Club. When he’s not busy with his work as a life coach, Peter Winslow enjoys weight training.

Many people don’t think about breathing when they weight lift, but incorrect breathing technique increases the risk of injury and can cause blood pressure spikes, vision disturbances, and bursting blood vessels. To get the right breathing technique, individuals should begin controlling their breathing before they even start lifting. Depending on how intense a planned lifting session will be, this pre-lift regulation should begin 30 to 45 seconds before picking up the weights.

As a person picks up the weights, he should breathe out. This part of the exercise exerts the body, as does lifting or pushing the weight. It is known as the concentric phase of a lift and results in the muscle shortening or contracting.

During the concentric phase, people are more likely to hold their breath because they are straining their body. This maneuver is known as the Valsalva maneuver and is commonly seen among people lifting extremely heavy weights that require a great deal of exertion. For most people, it’s safer to avoid the Valsalva maneuver altogether and instead focus on breathing out in a controlled manner as they exercise.

Individuals must then breathe in as they drop the weight back down. This phase involves lengthening the muscle and is known as the eccentric phase of weight lifting. It is usually less strenuous on the body, so it’s the ideal time to breathe in.
