How can I begin to train my dry static apnea? I used this table, please feel free to give any advise on it:

- First I lay down in bed for 5 minutes, breathing relaxed, focusing on my muscles and mind :mad:
- Then I begin with a 5-5-5-5 pattern of inhaling, retaining, exhaling, retaining... for another 5 minutes. I do it with a complete Yoga breathing (belly breahing, medium breating plus upper breathing)
- Then I begin to go for a PB breath... the first time I do it, I get 1'30'', 5 contractions beginning at 1'15''... and the second time 2'10'' with 2 contractions beginning at 1'50''...

Is this the best way to train?

Thanks a lot :eek:

Your prep is probably better than mine until the first hold. Then try something like.. Hold until the first contraction or a dramatic decrease in heart rate the first time. Four minutes of your breathing and do it again. After a series of eight, you will have a feel for how much warm up your body likes.
My best gains were after I could ignore the contractions. Watching the second hand or counting heartbeats is far more productive than counting contractions, for me.
