Hey Jen, helping, and being a team is what its about.

You see Jen, and I mean this with all of my heart. You start acting with passion, and joy in spirit, you will always be near it, and this tends to "saturate yourself" with the goals one seeks and unclogs the arteries with undying motivation and spirit.

Your arteries will never harden, and your heart will always pump what you need.

And this is you.

Peace and happiness to you.

I will get this finished in the late AM...sorry for the delay, young lady.

Found this on the net. Take it for whatever it is worth to you.

Not Holding your Breath


Many powerlifters will tell you that holding your breath, otherwise known as the Valsava manouver, is not only perfectly safe but actually necessary as it increases abdominal pressure and effective force transmission through your body, and thus gives you an advantage for big maximum effort lifts.

However, just because it can increase your lifts slightly doesnt mean it's perfectly safe or necessary. Elite athletes make compromises for performance, and in my opinion this is what powerlifters are doing. Holding your breath during weightlifting has been shown to increase blood pressure, intracranial pressure, and risk of aneurism and inner-ear fistulas (i.e. Blowing a hole in your inner ear... think instant severe vertigo and hearing loss).

The simple answer is of course, dont hold your breath. You might not be able to lift as much per lift, but if you're serious about lifting, you should know by now that the biggest rewards come with consistency and the target of slow, steady and sustainable gains. So keep breathing between reps. For certain exercises it's even beneficial to take a breath between reps and let your muscles temporarily relax, this really allows blood pressure to drop back down before the next repetition. To me, it's a common sense practice that I consider essential to lifelong strength training.

You are going to find 100 things that tell you the opposite of both our opinions. From my experience if your not holding your air in, your going to pull a muscle at some point. I will take my chances with an exploding ear for a few extra lbs

I have to stay tight during heavy eccentrics, and a vital part of that for me is holding my breath in. All I can speak is for myself.
