Why yield curve steepens before recession?

I noticed that once yield curve is inverted, it steepens again before a recession. I couldn't find any explanation for that. what would be the reason?

Any ways to leverage BND / GNMA?

Since BND / GNMA (e.g., VFIIX) have one of the best sharpe ratios (also very stable in recent recessions, 2000/2008), but low CAGR, I thought it would be great a portfolio component with some leverage. Though I couldn't find any practical method to leverage them, any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
