No no no you way over hyper ventalating which is way your feeling like your going to pass out its also why you need to do a proffesinol course !!!! So for the first 1.30 rest breath normaly then for the last 30 secounds a long slow inhale and a passive exhale that is it also the first 4 breath holds hyper ventilating
I thought it was the proper way to breath

So for every breath hold rest time the first 1.30 rest breath normaly then for the last 30 secounds a long slow inhale 2 maybe 3 times with a passive exhale that is it also the first 4 breath holds no hyper ventilating
Alright. I started holding my breath underwater today, doing CO² tables , the first 4 are fine but when I get to the last 4, I just can't do it. Idk why. Is it because I am not used to holding my breath underwater? Any tips on how to get pass that?
