    if you ain't see stars when you get up from a rep... you aint doing it right

    breathing out during a rep is going to lessen the tension on your lower body and promote injury - hold your breath the whole rep, breathe at the top

    If I'm doing more than one rep at anything above say 225, I'll stand up and rest after each rep.
