I heard some ppl squeezing/pulling in their stomach towards the spine such as in plank posture or just any other exercise to make the abs woek as well..

My question is.. if you do that.. how are you suppose to breath naturally?? As your stomach wont be able to rise and fall when breathing

This is taught in yoga as well. You breathe up and out of your chest. Hope that helps. It's been working for me.

Don't try so hard that you throw off your breathing. Just tense up the abs, like you were prepping for a punch to the gut. Also, squeeze your gleutes at the same time to straighten your spine

When you tence your Abbs n squeeze your glutes you naturally straighten your spine .. With the breathing do it normally just keep a bit of tension n when you keep practicing this you'll be able to hold the tension n breath normally it just takes practice :)

Yeah you breath with your ribs.. It should be only about inflating the lungs not stomach..
