Push the air out with my diaphragm.

I have a hard time focusing on stuff like breathing, pedaling and bike position. Much of my riding time is spent reacting to the world around me and thinking of stuff far away from the bike.

When I do focus on breathing I find that pushing the air out from my diaphragm, like my clarinet teacher taught me, and letting it come back in by itself makes me feel better oxygenated when climbing or trying to ride fast. The downside is that it sticks my stomach out like a cycling Buddha for about 3/4 of the breathing cycle.
