Help for static

Jun 21, 2002
I just started to do static training ( three days ago ) and feel lazy to search and read all the stuff again. Just asking for basic tips... Should i exhale or keep my breath till last second which i am currently doing... But after some time the pressure really get annoying have to force my tongue to keep the air inside:hmm

I am now practicing table b from freediver.co.uk is this good for begining? or they are better ways/programs to start with?

My start table three days ago was this

Intro: 40 seconds
* Max breath hold: 120 seconds
Increase breath hold time by: 15seconds
Rest period: 120 seconds

Now i am doing this

Intro: 40 seconds
* Max breath hold: 160 seconds
Increase breath hold time by: 15seconds
Rest period: 150 seconds

Any help about anything either for style/technique or for tables will appreciated.
I think the table A is as important as the table B. Co2 tolerance is very important for static as most people don't have the Co2 tolerance necessary to hold to BO/Samba, myself included! I used to do only the table B, but now I do the table A more often. I'm starting to think that things like apnea push-ups, squats ect. build statics faster than any of the tables anyway.

In any case, the tables are good. Your finishing hold in the table B should be somewhere close to your max hold, but still a chalenge. Table A I use hold times of around half of my table B max hold.

My .02 cents!
Thanks Aaron, i am using table b to increase max breath hold. I increase the rest period to increase max breath hold time. After i reach the point that i can not go any further i will try table a to increase the perfromance...
