Hello all,

I'm a beginner freediver (just completed a Molchanovs Wave2 course), and currently have plenty of time to train.
I currently have unlimited access to a 10m long pool, with a wall on one side (1.70m deep) and steps on the others (1.30 m deep in the shallow end), and was wondering if people had tips for training in smaller pool?
Having access to a bigger pool is complicated at the moment with restrictions.

I'm doing DYN and DNF, but finding a little harder than in the larger pool where I did the course. I did 75m with fins and 50 no-fins, but haven't managed to replicate these in the smaller pool, ( poor turn techniques?).

Any tips on how to use the small length efficiently?

thanks!

Guess the number of turns become an issue. Perhaps perferable to do slow sessions, e. g. 4-5 times as slow as possible ...

Thanks - I'll try focusing on going as slow as possible instead of distance. I've also tried following the walls or the pool in DNF, for a longer swim.
