Here is Dr. Seiler on breathing. It's a great and thorough exploration of the subject: http://home.hia.no/~stephens/ventphys.htm

After a warm-up make your first effort a heroic effort on the bike and record the distance. Take any rest needed and give the best dumbbell bench-press you can at fifteen reps or less. Again, rest as long as you want then repeat both efforts. Use the same weight for each bench press set.

If the first cycling and bench-press effort are true max efforts, then the second and third efforts are not repeatable no matter how long the rest.

To test the quality of the first efforts and demonstrate the point of the workout take a LONG break after each couplet.

Keep the rest between cycle effort and
bench-press constant for each couplet.
