How to Hold Your Breath Longer Well for Freediving?
There are tips on how to hold your breath longer well in freediving, which depends on what level of freedive you are. Because different exercises are depending on what level you're will be aimed at. As long as you pay attention to practice more, you will have good results.
Actually what you need to train is o2/co2 tolerance firstly. Because it's not like we have a breath holding muscle, for the most part, we need to train our body's co2 tolerance, which gives us the urge to breathe not our oxygen levels. Then you need to train your body to deal with low oxygen levels or hypoxia, which allows you to hold your breath longer well and gain a higher tolerance to carbon dioxide. The thing is that you need to take some time and even weeks. The last we need to train is our bodies and aerobic processes. It's most notable that our body's ability to use lactate or lactic acid as a fuel source so that you don't get heavy or dead feeling legs.
The best way to train your static breath-hold is a training table called co2 tables. You do eight consecutive breath holds in which you must start a new breath-hold every four minutes. You decide when you want to start breathing again and the remaining time before the next four-minute mark is your recovery time. Training static breath-hold is the best way to develop deeper levels of relaxation and gain more control over your body and experience higher levels of carbon dioxide in a very safe and controlled environment.
Another one of the most things is that you must relax your body as much as possible. Don't worry too much about the lowered heart rate, just try to relax everything, from your legs to your fingers, mouth, and tongue so that you don’t force your breath and then make you calm and comfortable in the water.
