  • So the trick is not to be scared of drowning when your body is telling you he needs air

  • Here's a tip: When you lift your head out of the water, breathe out before you inhale. That way you don't breathe in the water that sticks to your face for a second after you get out of the water.

  • I went from being able to hold my breathe for ten seconds to one minute in 180 days using the STAmina app. In my defense, I stopped training after about three weeks and just started again yesterday. Plus I'm a young teenager who isn't in great health, so although lungs don't grow with age, my lung capacity isn't great compared to a healthy adult.

  • You can use meditation techniques when underwater to hold your breath longer, but instead of focusing on your breath try to focus on the sensation of the water around your body. Feel the water touch you, feel it’s temperature, after a few moments you will even notice that if you stay very still it’s almost no different than being out of the water, there comes a point where it just feels the same in your skin.

  • Pro tip: VERY cold water triggers a reflex to breathe in. Also, breathing out before going under water puts less pressure on your chest and feels more comfortable (in my opinion). Source: i find sitting on the bottom of a pool to be relaxing.

  • congratulations! you need to try an underwater dive of 50yards or more. before all of my free diving I get my water comfortability from just doing underwater distance runs in order to get my breath holds to a comfortable place before plunging. will challenge you to use your body efficiently to not burn off the o2 as well as hold your breath.
