    Quoting your article :

    As a rule of thumb, inhale on the easy part of an exercise and exhale on the hard part. Using leg extension machine as an example – exhale as you lift up the weights and inhale as you go down. Another example – bench press, inhale when you lift the weight up and exhale when you lower down the weight to your chest. I shall write more about the correct breathing technique in near future.

    i hope you meant, INHALE during the PRESSING phase of the BENCH PRESS is THE WRONG WAY TO DO IT.

    maybe i’m reading your article wrong (the way you put your words kinda got me confoooosed :)

    anyway, always INHALE when lowering the weight to your chest, and exhale to press it back up.

    hey mun, what bout lateral raises and front raises for shoulders. i mean does our hand actually form a straight line through out that exercise, or do we bend slightly in order to have a correct form. ive read some articles saying that we should have a slight bend and vice versa. which one should i follow?

    Hi Jubby, good question. Thanks for asking that and I shall reply that in a standalone post when I write about lateral raise for shoulders.
