What do I do when I run out of breath during squats before my muscles are exhausted?
Thighs are large muscles that require a lot of blood flow during squats. What can happen is your cardiovascular system is getting exhausted before your muscles.
If you are having trouble finishing the exercise before your muscles are exhausted, we recommend trying the split squat, as it allows you to focus on one leg at a time. It is also amazing for core activation.
You may also want to move down in resistance to a lighter band.
Also, be sure to practice proper breath control. This will allow you to get more repetitions and go to a deeper level of fatigue.
