Hey guys, a couple days ago I did my first beginner PADI freediving course and Iam absolutely hooked, I've never experienced something like that in my life and I'm very certain that i found myself a new passion.
The problem Iam facing right now is that there is no dive club or some freediving people anywhere near by Wich makes me very sad.
Anyway, what I am after is a Trainplan or guide for beginners they can do by themselves outside the water ?
Are there any beginner tables or something where I can start training myself until I find some buddys?
I hope someone can help me out.

I would suggest ever other day 2 min breath-up holding your breath until you hit your first few gentile contractions. Repeat 6-8 times. Once a week you can test your max breath hold. When you get somewhere between 3-4 min you can switch to more formalized tables. If you find yourself getting board you can switch it out with 15 min box breathing on one or two days. AND if you are crunched for training time do your breath holds with empty lungs that day.

You can also try apnea walking. Hold your breath while walking, preferably on grass or other soft ground. Hold for as long as possible. Breathe for up to 1 minute and repeat. Keep it up for 20 to 30 minutes. DTry with empty as well as full lungs and see which works better for you.
