Adding to my previous Guillaume N茅ry Post this is another Discipline in the Freediving world That amazes me as it鈥檚 a way Most free Divers Train And also how I used to train having only as most in the UK this facility for use so using the Local Pool was our only means especially in the winter.

What difference does doing the same distance at depth do to the body Neilo? Is it harder?

King Kenny Sir Most Definitely as Diving to Depth then brings pressure into the equation as the deeper you Dive the smaller your Lungs get.

In Layman鈥檚 Terms if you take a 2 litre sealed empty bottle under water and down in depth (This Exercise is always Shown to new Divers whether Scuba or Freedivers) you will physically watch the bottle crush into literally an empty bottle but in ascending the Bottle regains it鈥檚 size again馃槷 it鈥檚 amazing to see in the flesh and why SCUBA tanks are usually metal and compressed yet they still
Compress the deeper you go giving you less Dive time the Deeper you go.

That鈥檚 what鈥檚 happening to your Lung Capacity as you dive deeper.
Deep Freedivers Lungs compress down to the size of an Orange 馃崐

Interesting explanation Neilo. So as you go deeper the pressure is forcing the air that's in your lungs out into your body?

So how come he couldn't do 400 meters in the pool if the pressure is not a factor?

Kenny Sir

the increased pressure causes the volume of air in your lungs to decrease. But as this happens,the partial pressure of the air inside your lungs increases. ...Weird,Then, as you ascend, the volume of air inside your lungs increases, oxygen comes out of the blood, back into your lungs.

As for not being able to do 400m then that鈥檚 Human Nature and our Body Biology As exertion under water to move forward uses up oxygen turning it into
Carbon Dioxide which builds up and requires us to breathe in air again for the Oxygen we need.
If you read his comments on the Dive he states his body is really tired as his oxygen is turning to carbon Dioxide creating Lactic Acid which is why we tire
And hurt after exercise but he鈥檚 holding his breath in the process as well using up Oxgen twice as fast.

This is why ND Limits Divers can Dive much deeper as there鈥檚 little exertion being dropped down on an underwater Sledge ergo using less oxygen馃憤

We only have a certain amount of time underwater like Most mammals
Who can only stay underwater for a certain length before needing a breath Whales,Dolphins,Seals,sea Lions,Penguins etc.but training and Practice makes freedivers hold their breath Longer than the Average human and Dive deeper.

Be nice to have Gills though if needed馃槀

馃槀馃槀馃槀馃槀 Kenny Sir That鈥檚 Still Good Going And about average for most people.
Now all you need to do is practice Daily even once and I bet by the end of a week your over 2 minutes馃憤
Remember you and most people can hold their breath around 30 Seconds longer than you think If you can push through the (I need to breathe now Barrier)
If your ever out walking look ahead and pick a spot and walk Holding your breath to see if you reach it.Good Lung exercise as well.
I May start Chanting in a minute馃槀馃槀馃槀 ommmm ommmm馃槣

Thanks Neilo. I might have been able to go a bit longer but I had to sneeze right at the end. I don't think I want to try it again. My head still feels weird!

Relax KK Sir And You鈥檝e Made the First step.
The effects are your body not being used to it馃憤
Eg:think of the last time you tried to hold your breath? Bet it was a long time ago.馃槷

Wow! Just wow! That's twelve lengths of my local pool.i can't do ten with having to stop. I see that I am going to have to try harder.

I found his commentary very interesting. It is very much a mental challenge as much as a physical one. And was interesting to see how he varied his stroke rate too.

I think my challenge for next year will be to increase my breath holding capabilites but to time my efforts I need to buy a chrono as I don't have one in the collection. :))
