No, I dont mean running round shooting at fish shapes in the garden.... although...;)
Im wondering what people think the best way to replicate the 'work/effort' used under water during spearfishing is when apnea training on land (see other post... I have no pools to play in) Is it jogging, walking, combinations? Any tried and tested or radical new ideas mind you id like to avoid the run up and down your road in full kit idea :D
and while im here anyone got any ideas on replicating a straight freedive for depth etc. any funky equations etc gladly recieved (i.e walking 5miles in apnea is equivilent to diving 30m and suffering a SWB rofl ) only kidding but you catch my drift.
As always thanks in advance.
seated row in the gym. helps get the "quick reload" if you miss.

Well so I've heard....Me miss? Never..........

we do a lot of "tickling" in the Gulf - catching big grouper with our hands..

if you have a friend with a big mean dog you could try wrestling it in a wetsuit, same effect I presume.......

Willer :confused:

On an stationary cycle I'd try;
15 seconds at 250 watts, 15 seconds rest and 30 seconds at 200 watts. That should come close to a 30 meter dive. For running, try 80 and 70 % of your max speed, to start. Just guessing here.
