Static apnea is AMAZING for practicing and improving your relaxation and breathing techniques as well as breath-hold capacity for freediving before going out into open water ✨😉
I think of static like an underwater meditation ✨💙😊 I find it SOOO relaxing and also excellent for improving body awareness, mental focus and builds confidence for freediving.
For example, if you get a 2+ minute breath-hold time during a static apnea session (which is quite easy to do after learning the freediving techniques for how to breathe and relax before your breath-hold and also with proper coaching), then imagine how more confident you will feel, and how much easier (!) it will be going on a freedive to around 15-20 meters, where the dive time is less than a minute! 😉
So static apnea is an EXCELLENT training for freediving, I highly recommend, AND you might even surprise yourself! Both Eirik and Tristan held their breath for over 3 minutes!! 😳 Eirik got over 4 minutes!! 😳 And they both had A LOT more gas in the tank!! 😉✨
And for sure by the end of the static apnea session, they were ready and super pumped for the open water freediving session 😳
Def stay tuned! I’ll be posting more about Eirik and Tristan’s freediving course and their open water sessions as well as all the latest freediving happenings in Dahab!
