    It's counter intuitive but I've been doing this for a while. The difference is night and day. As a basic premise: as the weight in = breathe in. Weight out = breathe out. Takes time to adjust with groups like back or biceps where you would think to breathe out during contraction.
    By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.

    This is kinda silly, and dangerous. It is absolutely possible to keep your back arched and chest popped while exhaling. Guy is asking for an aneurysm.

    I used this technique for the first time last night on low rows and it is crazy how instantaneously you can feel the difference. I also used this with pullups, made them ridiculously hard
    I don't go lift, I don't go workout, I don't go train....I go get sexy....sexy as fwuark!!!!!!!!!

    It makes it seem hard at first but then it just starts to make sense. You may want to reconsider where you expand during inhalation. Instead of working to expand the rib cage try allowing your abdomen to expand. The rib cage doesnt give nearly as much as soft tissue like the stomach... theres a lot of reading to be done on chest vs diaphragm breathing.
