Tolerating Gs during a malfunction Can't Post

I am the type that if someone mentions a possible problem situation, I think about what I would do if I find myself in that same situation. I have always believed that if you have played the problem out in your mind first, that your will have a better chance of a managed reaction.

Yes, I am new to skydiving, so bear with me. People talk about spinning malfunctions and how quickly you might get incapacitated do to G forces. Yes, I know you want to deal with it very quickly before the rotation speed would have time to build up.

In about one second I can take a partial breath and bear down (fighter pilots grunt) to help keep more of the blood in my brain. This will increase (to some degree) G tolerance.

In all the mention of G related incapacitation talk, I have not noticed anyone mentioning using this technique to better manage the emergency. Is this ever brought up to students as something that might help them out?
