Breathing is the highest priority on the totem pole of life, yet the science and practical application of breathing has skipped past the weight room on its way to the mind-body studio! This lecture brings the research of respiration back to strength training and shows how commonly employed breathing techniques actually work to hinder the biomechanics and physiology of the body. You will learn how to assess breathing patterns and how properly-timed breathing can facilitate optimal movement and enhance performance during resistance training.
