I believe this thread to be very relevant, as I am still puzzled by this. Some part of apnea is aerobic and then it turns into anaerobic activity. For both kind of activities I need different types of muscle fibers. I guess the anaerobic fast twitch fibers will be more useful towards the end of the dive. But how do I train to increase the amount of them, if that is possible after all?
I think my muscles are mostly aerobic slow twitch and if this really is a disadvantage in freediving, how do I change?
poida, what's wrong with your last post? There is always some truth in everything, even if it this time only concerns the cider :friday
Well, anyway, my progress in freediving has stagnated for quite some time now and I am simply trying to find out what to change and what not. I already do way better in relaxation, which shows in my static. But I really have problems with dynamic. I always come up totally clean and contractions usually aren't the problem either. My legs and arms simply fail to perform after some time and I am not sure what to do against that, besides lactic training, I guess.
Sometimes genetics dictate what sports people can excell in. But do not dictate what sports people enjoy.
Bajao, or to be acurate they call themselves Davao Samain general what race would consider most suited for freediving?
