      Hi.
      Would like to know what Breathing pattern does Kelly recommend in basic strength movements like the deadlift or the squat.
      Going through the bracing sequence is a good start to create a stable spine + stiff trunk. Then you can inhale and exhale in to the stiff trunk.

      But when we take the deadlift as an example, is there a certain timing when to inhale or to exhale? Especially when you do multiple reps, there have to breathing phases.

      Some older theories said, that you inhale in the excentric and exhale in the concentric phase. For me it would make more sense to get a sharp inhale und exhale at the top (hips in extension) and then hold the breath and keep the trunk stiff during the movement.
