I was reading through the archives from one of your '98 issues and there was an article about somone training to freedive in a pool. No mention was made of communication with lifegaurds or a buddy in the water. Anyone even considering this type of conditioning should read Terry Maas' chapter on shallow water blackout, reprinted in its' entireity here.


cut and paste the url, and consider staying in the cold water cause the damage to your lungs in pool water is so much worse. Don't die playing arouond with this, too many people do.
