I’m starting to either squat or deadlift in almost every workout and want to make sure my technique is right. I’ve seen 2 different opinions in terms of breathing/stabilizing the spine and i would like to know which one is right?
- breathe in and and expand stomach for the bottom of the lift and during the upwards phase exhale but keep ur stomach out while keep everything tight
- breathe in and expand stomach for the bottom of the lift and during the upwards phase exhale and pull ur stomach in to stabilize ur spine
-The first one is from Westside but the 2nd one makes sense because with pulling in ur stomach ur engaging ur transverse abdominis? Any thoughts/comments on this would be very appreciated
