Man - 1000x thank you's for noticing and commenting on this. I did this this morning, and that issue I was having in terms of collapsing forward - gone. Given that I was collapsing forward, I wasn't reaching my full potential depth, but having tightened up, that dangers is gone and.... It took me a little bit to get used to taking a depth breath, holding it - and getting comfortable with it. But I'm pretty sure that's better depth. So - this "tightening up". Does that apply to all of the lifts? Cause I was doing romanian deads after, and for the lighter sets, I just did the usual, but found myself going to that deep breath/tighten up routine, on the heavier sets. Does it apply to other exercises - bench? Deads etc? Or more so just for squats?
