而暢銷書Starting Strength作者Mark Rippetoe則有不同的看法，下方影片6分05秒開始。他建議的方式是先在動作進行前深吸一口氣，直到您完成一次動作後才進行吐氣，也就是槓接觸到地板才吐氣，動作全程是閉氣的。
而「深吸口氣」要吸飽嗎？在BodyBuilding文章”Know When To Hold It: How To Breathe While Lifting”有提到一項研究結果：
To maximize intra-abdominal pressure during strength training, you should breathe deeply—approximately 75 percent of maximum—into your belly and hold that breath if possible throughout a repetition, exhaling only when you complete the rep. This provides optimal support for the spine, and it makes you stronger structurally.
而研究下背疼痛的權威專家 Stuart McGill則建議動作過程中持續地進行自然呼吸，這有助於身體在任何情況下維持持續的腹部肌肉啟動及確保脊椎穩定，在”Enhancing Low Back Health through stabilization exercise”有說明：
Some people recommend that during training, one should exhale upon exertion (when weight training for example, exhaling upon the lifting phase and inhaling on the lowering). In terms of grooving stabilizing motor patterns for all tasks, this is a mistake.
In other words, breathing in and out should occur continuously, and not be trained to a specific exertion effort – this helps to maintain constant abdominal muscle activation and ensure spine stability during all possible situations (of course the opposite is true for maximal effort competitive lifting where a valsalva manoeuvre”努責效應” with the breathe held is necessary – but performance training is not the emphasis here).
Further, specific muscle activation patterns are essential to avoid injury but have also been documented to become perturbed following injury. Pain is a powerful instigator in the deprogramming of normal/healthy motor patterns into perturbed patterns. The exercises and programs described here are based on the latest scientific knowledge of how the spine works, and becomes injured. In addition, they have been quantified for spine load, resultant spine stability, and muscle oxygenation, to name a few. These are only a few examples to begin a program.
The goals are to enhance spine stability through grooving motion and muscle activation patterns to prepare for all types of challenges. Of course, other exercises may be required subsequently to enhance daily functioning, but once again, these will depend upon the characteristics and objectives of the individual.
