Farmers Walk Breathing Question



To be honest, I have no idea how to breathe during the farmer's walk. My understanding is this: You keep your core tight with a big breath to take load off your spine. But how do you do that and breathe at the same time? I've heard some people use the term "sip breathing." But I'm not entirely sure how that works. This question goes to squatting also.

Thanks for your help


Act like you're breathing through a straw.


Correct, and try to breath in and out forcefully.
