How should I breath when performing a weight training exercise?

Proper Breathing

When lifting weights, in general you should be exhaling the air on the exertion or positive part of the movement, and inhaling air on the stretch or negative part of the movement. For example, on a biceps curl you would exhale as you curl the weight up and contract the biceps, and you would inhale as you lower the weight down and stretch the biceps.
