my breath several times!
la respiración varias
You ¡Aguantaba la respiración muchas veces!
this seems this would be ongoing : that he held his breath while things
Could the imperfect be used as well in this case?
Thank you, Nicole

I don't think it works well with the imperfect in this case. This is referring to something that happened several times while he was watching the trapeze act. The holding his breath is seen as a completed action even if it happened more than once, because you start and stop, then you start and stop again, etc. I hope this makes sense.
