Man, I used to practice a lot and I was about 1m 40s. However, now, MAYBE I can get 1.15 tops.

Underwater it is a lot harder because of the pressure.

If you practiced a lot and only got that high... thats ood. I only practiced when I was bored in class or maybe watching a movie and managed to work my way up to 4, and in only a couple months time.

I mean, it wasn't religiously or anything, but I would practice at least twice or three times throughout the day for a few months... Couldn't get much higher than that.

Dam it Dylan. I've seen that video twice before and I love it. As soon as I realized which video you were sending me to, I couldn't not watch it.

Well, I did just over a minute now (66 seconds). First time I've tried to hold my breath in years. I think I might have done something like 90 seconds way back when.

I see that the record now for holding one's breath is at 19 minutes and 21 seconds. Unless someone beat this guy's record:

http://news.discovery.com/human/breath- ... human.html

I came across a good article a few years ago, that talks about free diving and holding one's breath:

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/article763735.ece

The journalist writing the article took a course as part of the story, and learned to hold his breath for (at least) 3 min 40 seconds.

Don't those record holder guys usually breathe 100% oxygen for awhile leading up to their breath hold?...If you do that it's going to add a whole lot of time to how long you can hold it.



....just read the article....yes they do breathe 100% oxygen but somehow i doubt most people on these forums do that before they try.

Try holding your breath in water colder than 70 degrees Fahrenheit or 21 degrees Celsius. ;)
