Dry vs. Wet

Thread Status: Hello , There was no answer in this thread for more than 60 days.
It can take a long time to get an up-to-date response or contact with relevant users.
I read somewhere that the average person can do 1 minute more dry than wet but for me that is not the case.
Mine are pretty similar dry or wet but I think I give up too easily doing them dry as I'm usually on my own then and don't really wanna black out on the sofa even if it is harmless!

wait a minute

I thought that it was just the opposite. I can only hold my breath for a dry static of 3" min but in the water it is nearly doubled. As I have come to understand the breath hold is increased by the mamilian dive reflex. Thus it would seem that dry statics would generally be shorter than wet statics, no?

Yep I find dry statics to be about a minute longer then wet statics.
