RE: The "Do You Even Deadlift" Clinic
Holding the breath isn't the issue though. Its the pressure that happens in my eye that is. Perhaps a faster rep, my reps tend to be 3-4 seconds with a lot of breath held in. Too much pressure may lead to retinal detachment I've heard and I have a family history of that. He asked is it possible to hold the breathe in with the mouth open, since that would reduce pressure a tad. The closing of the mouth might be the cause.

When I do the pause lifts I don't hold the breath in during the pause, but sort of quick breath. And a slight hold during the final pull up. They don't bother my eye at all, but I'm not lifting much weight either.
