Strength Tip from Julia: Breathing at Low Repetitions

Julia is the coach of our women’s classes and is one of the best strength coaches around. ¬†Gaining and maintaining muscle is one of the cornerstones of Met Flex for Fat Loss.

“If you are doing five reps or less try to hold your breath for each rep. Keep the air/pressure until the rep is complete then reset your position. Treat each rep as an individual single rep. This will allow you to stay tight and maintain your position during the lift (squat, deadlift, clean, overhead press), and by resetting and taking another deep breath for the next rep, you’re positioning yourself to be SET every time.”
