Question squat question

I have to admit I hate doing squats, but do them every week anyways. Whenever I squat, usually 3 sets of 15 reps, afterwords I feel totally drained and sometimes almost dizzy. Which makes it hard to continue one with the rest of my leg work out for the day. I guy at my work suggested that I may not be breathing properly, could this be the problem? Its not nutrition, as I eat a high protein meal about an hour before I work out and again after. I think if I didnt feel this way after I did them, I wouldnt mind doing them as much. No other excersise affects me in this way, except maybe the deadlift, but not to the extent of the squat.

Remember, every BODY is different. Perhaps you may be the type of person who doesn't do well with a high-protein meal beforehand. I would try changing it a bit, to see what works for you. Perhaps try to eat 2 hours before, or eat high carbs instead, or a moderate amount of protein. Just play around with it a bit to see if that helps.

Also, yes, proper breathing is important.

Don't give up yet. Squats are the best out there, especially for bringing up that rump! I love 'em, and what they've done for my rear end.
