Belly Breathing

Post  Vaatjie on Thu Jan 28, 2010 4:53 am

I use a tecniqure called Belly breathing. Spearos stole it from the yoga guys.

Basically you must learn to use you diaphram to expand your belly so you can fill you whole lung. Inhale = push belly out and visa Versa.

Google Magic it, there is some video on Youtube I think. An some decent articles on the internet. Or just join Blue Spearos and have somebody show you!!!!!!!!

Thanks

Powerlung and Umberto's Manual of freediving

Post  raltern on Fri Jan 29, 2010 6:25 am

The Book was a revelation for me, really helped with some simple and effective exercises.
The Powerlung cost a fortune so motivated me to keep up with the exercises and has also really helped. Its amazing how much more you use something when you know the wife is gonna have you for breakfast if you've spent a fortune and not using it... bounce

Powerlung

It works really well. because you need to put effort in to breath you can easily watch yourself if you're not "belly breating" as you should be. Thorasic breathing doesnt cut it with PL, you shoulders rise up etc and its uncomfortable.
I started jogging to get fit. The powerlunbg reinforced the propper breathing as well as strenghtened my "lungs", I now run like a freekin race horse (really feels good)

As for diving, I have not seen an improvement in deapth or bottom time. Propper surface prep before the dive as well as lots of dive time are the only things that really work in my mind. The PL helps alot with recovery time and if your technique is already good I'd say that you may get up to 25% increase in dive times due to getting more good air in your lungs without expending excess energy.

I got it brought in from the US when my outlaws family came down so paid around 1k, they retail here for 2k affraid which is nuts in my oppinion. they can say all they like but all it is, is a pipe with an inlet valve (adjustable spring tention) with o-ring seals and an outlet valve just the same but in reverse.

put it this way, if it were lost or stolen I'd definatly replace it (even at 2k)

Today I tried to do some Apnea tables online and started out with
1:30 breath hold and 2:00 rest then another breath hold of 1:35 and rest 1:55.
Here is what I did:
Hold Rest
1:30 2:00
1:35 1:55
1:40 1:50
1:45 1:45
1:50 1:40
1:55 1:35
