Are there any specific breathing techniques that should be used during my gym workouts?

Exhale as you lift the weights to bend them, then inhale as you lower them. To do push-ups, inhale as you go down to the floor and exhale when you push yourself up. Staying in tune with this breath can even help ensure that you're not lifting weight that's too heavy for you. The reference standard during strength training is to inhale when you relax and exhale during exercise.

For cardiovascular exercise, you generally breathe in and out through your nose or, when intensity increases, through your mouth. Here are some breathing control tricks you can try with your customers. Focusing on proper breathing techniques can make a big difference in your exercise routine. Running is a sport without a singular convention on breathing.

Some people say “breathe in through your nose and breathe out through your mouth.” Others say that you have to breathe in tune with the race, so inhale in one step and exhale in the next. Others say that you should breathe in the way that best suits you to finish a race. So isn't there an optimal and unique way to breathe when you run?.
