Hey Guys,
I was just wondering if increasing your Total Lung Capacity (TLC) through packing and decreasing your Reserve Volume (RV) through exhale statics or negative packing had any result on your Tidal Volume (TV)? Or the normal amount that you breathe in and out in everyday life. Any comment is welcome, thanks guys!


P.S. I hope my terms are right! ;)
Hmm that was an interesting question.. I havent done any tests so I dont know.. But I have another interesting question: Will a freediver breathe fewer times per minute/will he need less oxygen than a normal person.. Of course this will need to be monitored or sumthin..
