I never tried to INHALE for 30 or 45 s...But the scheme looks interesting, one can follow it in any circumstances..One other drill that can help with these sort exercises is just performing a very long breath cycle. I am sure it's a yoga thing, too. Basically just set an interval, likesay 1:30, and the game is that you spend 30 seconds on a single inhale, 30 secs hold, 30 secs on a single exhale, repeat ad nauseum. So one breath every minute and thirty seconds. It probably has some lung stretching benefit but it's mostly mental training, and you can vary the intervals, ie 45 sec inhale, 10 sec hold, 45 sec exhale, whatever. With practice you will get better quickly and times will increase.
First of all its important to understand that the goal of a CO2 table is to get better at "full" breath holds, not to get better at CO2 tables. To look at this another way imagine you are doing pushups as a way of training to throw a ball harder. You shouldn't worry about getting better at the pushups, just focus on if they are having a positive effect on your true aim. just to reiterate, nn a freedivers case we don't want to be good at CO2 tables, we want to use CO2 tables (and other things) to get good at longer breath holds.Hey!! So, Im a n00b freediver (I dont know if i can even call myself a freediver) and I tried a one-breath c02 table. This was the thing: One breath-Wait until first contraction - 10 contractions
I know this would be stupidly easy for whoever is over 2min max, but I can onlt hold it for 50 secs, dont judge please.
I managed to repeat the above sequence 15 times, any tips or disclaimers in how could I get better?
