    Default Starr Rehab Breathing

    I'm using the Starr rehab method applied to deadlifts for a back injury.
    As I progress in the rep range of a particular set, I find myself breathing both at the top and the bottom of the rep. Is this a problem?
    I started my rehab at 95 lbs. My injury occurred on the 4th rep at 260; my 1x PR is 290.
    47 YO male, 195lbs, novice.
    Thank you.

    It's okay if you breathe twice. The set is long and the weight is light.

    The questions today have not been the best, so far.

    you're saying that its okay if I breath enough times during a long set as to not possibly blackout, hit my head, and die?! BLASPHEMY
