Exercise has been touted to do everything from treat depression to improve memory, with the power to cure a host of problems while preventing even more. In particular, exercise leads to the release of certain neurotransmitters in the brain that alleviate pain, both physical and mental. Additionally, it is one of the few ways scientists have found to generate new neurons. Although the exact nature of these benefits is still being determined, enough research has been done to provide even sceptics with a motivation to take up exercise.

A study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine found that regardless of whether inhaling or exhaling during the concentric phase - when the weight is moving against gravity -, similar blood pressure readings are produced. The important thing is to make sure you don’t hold your breath even just for a moment. Many athletes find it is more comfortable to exhale during the concentric phase and inhale when the weight is moving with gravity.
