I made a video documenting my journey of learning to hold my breath for 4 minutes but I also uploaded this uncut clip of the breath hold originally as unlisted. People actually seemed interesting in watching it so I’ve added so commentary. Let me know your thoughts!

  • When I hold my breath I reduce my hearth beat for 2 minutes. Then I relax my body in the sea and wait some time. Then I start counting the seconds. it really does help me.

  • I actually only watched this to measure my first try against your 4 minutes. 1:39 was what I got first try, but I honestly think I could go 2 minutes + right now, as I pretty much immediately stopped at the "contraction phase". It's a matter of commitment, really. I kinda find myself lacking that, though...

  • Just saying. This is actually really dangerous, if you have ever heard of a shallow water blackout. It is where you hold your breath so long that you dont even realize passing out, and then you are dead.

  • Nice job. My wife and I are going to Cancun in May of this year and we'll be doing some snorkeling. I really want to train to hold my breath for a long time so I can dive a bit deeper than usual. Im going to download that app and start training now. I can do about 1:20-1:30 comfortable. I cant wait to get to 3 mins! Great video.

  • blowing a little air out when you're feeling the urge to breathe can help for some reason. Also doing the wim hof method would make this a lot easier - through I'd be worried about blacking out.

  • +Mike Boyd Does this skill translate to being able to dive into a public long pool and swim from the 6 ft section all the way down to the other end? I always wondered how people were able to hold their breath long enough to do that.
