I didn't imagine I was going to laugh out loud when I went to read this article, and even though it was funny, I think the toilet analogy was great.

Lyle,
- On the partial valsalva maneuver you said: "So for a set of 5 repetitions, I want them to treat it as 5 perfect single repetitions with each repetition starting off with a proper inhale and tightening up prior to beginning the eccentric. ". But what do you think of tightening up and inhaling to the belly and doing like 3 repetitions, then tightening up again doing more 2, then doing a few more singles?

- Should you do the valsalva maneuver on singles for a 12 repetition squat?

I don't like repeating myself but did you miss this

"Once at the top, regardless of what happened, the lifter should then inhale and perform another partial Valsalva prior to the next repetition. In this context, I tend to cue lifters who are somewhat new to lifting to treat each repetition of the set almost as an individual single. This is both a breathing and setup thing as many lifters start to rush (especially when it gets heavy)."
