In this short video, California Strength Head Strength Coach, Ernie Hernandez, explains how we teach our athletes and lifters to breathe during squats and big lifts. You want to take a deep breath using your diaphragm before the lift, which helps to increase intra-abdominal pressure and provide extra support to stabilize the spine and brace your core. This is in contrast to breathing with the abdominals which makes it impossible to breathe and stabilize the spine simultaneously. This will demonstrate why the back squat is one of the best, if not the best core exercises you can use in your program.
