I hold my breath and flex my abs when I perform the Snatch to keep the intrabdominal pressure up to stabilize the spine etc
But when I finish the movement and the bar is above my head, I release the air, and suddenly I get this light headed feeling, almost dizziness. The bar suddenly feels a LOT heavier, and I struggle to bring it down under control (There’s no platform at the gym)
In that video of Pat Mendes snatching 207kg, (I snatch 61kg…) he holds his breath at the top and then releases it and says, ‘I’m so good’ (What a beast) As soon as he releases his breath, is where I would feel dizzy and light headed.
Does this happen to anyone else?
Does anyone know why it happens and how to stop it?
