    I'm having this issue, but more with deadlifts.

    EDIT- to clarify it wasn't happening before but not it's happening more and more. I take a deep breath before the lift but i get all faint by the end of the lift.

    i dunno man, i always feel dizzy when i hold my breath and bite my teeth really hard on the way up.

    im jus getting used to take a deep breath before the sqaut, keepin my jaw loose, and breathing in increments.

    Happens to me sometimes when I don't eat before my shoulder workout and I go heavy on seated db presses(80's-85's).

    Same thing happened to me this past monday. Had to grab the squat rack to balance/hold my self up. One month off, the first day back I do legs and I almost pass out on the first exercise.

    i heard you "fill your stomach with air", which still allows you to breath with your lungs.

    how do you take a deep breath to fill your stomach, then keep breatheing with your body filled? doesn't make sense
