    Hello everyone,

    This is a follow up from this thread Squat Form Check

    I dont know if this is normal but breathing becomes so difficult by the third rep.

    Thanks

    Are you training at altitude?

    Where I live is at 1400 meter altitude, so no.

    I'm curious, at what altitude would one expect to see effects on exertion?

    1,400 m seems kind of high to me by comparison to places I've lived and been, but I could well be wrong.

    Obviously depends on the individual and his "environmental history." But somewhere in the vicinity of 6000-6500 feet should cause discomfort.
