    Does fitness benefit STA or no?

    I've been thinking about it in two sides for a long time. On one hand more muscles means more blood so that we carry more oxygen, but on the other hand, we consume more oxygen through them. Is there a clear answer or do we have to find a balance?

    Strange DNF vs. Static

    So I am relatively new to freediving, and I have been training by doing CO2 tables once a day for the past two weeks. I have always been in extremely good shape and have always been able to swim 25 yards underwater with some difficulty. To get to the point of this post, when I do dry static...

    Iphone app?

    Freediving Workouts?

I have a buddy and my current static apnea time is 3:03 with my current DNF being approximately...

    What do you feel?

    Hi all, When you're doing a static apnea, what do you feel exactly, at different times (e.g a minute in a slight urge to breathe)? And how does this compare to a dynamic/fins apnea in the water? Any input would be greatly appreciated, Thanks in advance and dive safe Rock Shooter :D

    Beginner thoughts on "moving" apnea tables

    I scourged the web for information and opinion on static and dynamic apnea table training. Most are here or there, yet I did see the recommendation of taking 'Static' apnea tables as a sort of tool to accompany dynamic (in water) training. So far I have not got my feet wet freediving, and...

    Apnea vs. tinnitus

    Hi! I recently got interested in freediving. I was trying some static apnea on my dry bed and after a few attempts (on different days) I made it to 4:15 which I think is not bad. BUT it seems it has affected / worsened my tinnitus (which I already had some before). I was curious if anyone had a...
