Same goes for you too as Mullins is also one of the best freedivers in the world and a world record holder so I think he's done alright for someone who breathes through the mouth :t admittedly he does have 3 pairs of lungs though roflSo, if you don't trust people who mention the bible, maybe you'll trust one of the best freedivers in the world.
Not particularly, he's just citing their study. Remember it's that "10-15% higher oxidation" figure I find a bit silly. On its own like that it's essentially meaningless and probably misleading.Mullins, if you respect Stig, don't you think he would only refer to this research group if they had a point?
You will improve anyway if You keep training.I promise! An update for you which will be made up without bias using the info given. I am not a competition level athlete so it should be interesting to see how much this works. At the moment I only have relaxation, enjoyment and meditation as my tools xxx
I know there were studies 'proving' longer holds etc but I am a bit dubious. In my naive view of the world beetroot is a vasodilator and that surely can't be good for freediving, right? Perhaps it would be good for a marathon! LolI tried static and dynamic apnea while on beetroot juice ... couldn't conclude anything besides a small discomfort from having a bit more fluid in my stomach ...
Does someone have any experience with it ?
"The results suggest that acute dietary NO3− supplementation may increase apneic duration by reducing metabolic costs." (Respiratory Physiology & Neurobiology

Indeed Simos! But still, maybe it's a miracle dietary supplement ;-)I know there were studies 'proving' longer holds etc but I am a bit dubious. In my naive view of the world beetroot is a vasodilator and that surely can't be good for freediving, right? Perhaps it would be good for a marathon! Lol
(there are also some positive effects but how can one say what the net result would be...)
