We’ve all had that surprising moment – in the middle of an ab workout, treadmill run or bench press – when we realize we’ve been inexplicably holding our breath. Our faces are red, there’s pressure in our chest and sometimes a wave of dizziness sets in. Chances are, we finish the set before we explosively exhale, sometimes gasping for breath. I’m here to say that even though breathing incorrectly is a common occurrence during exercise, it’s still something we need to fix.
