RE: The "Do You Even Deadlift" Clinic
Nah you breathe in at the bottom just before lift off, hold it through the lift, then breathe out at the top. However, this breathing out doesn't mean you get all air out. It's just a forceful exhale like when you connect a punch, you still keep some air in. Once you've put the bar down, if needed, you can take bigger breaths in and out before the next rep.

Never breathe all out in the squat and bench as you're always under high tension from the bar.

kbell, I had a similar experience post eye surgery a few years ago, as my eye pressure was high. My optometrist warned about lifting and increased pressure. Eventually that went away though. This is something you have to feel and judge for yourself. You will still need to keep air in so you can protect your spine and stay tight, but within the limit of your eye condition.
