Regular Training is Important for Advancement in Freediving

In freediving, we go through both mental and physiological adaptation phases that help us hold our breath longer and reach deeper and greater distances..

When you learn to breathe correctly, how to hold, and to activate the mammalian diving reflex earlier, you will start to progress faster.

In addition to this, if you have a personal goal that you have convinced yourself and support it with a proper plan, you will reach your goal faster. The best way to progress in freediving, as in any sport, is to have the right, planned training and exercise routine.

There are many factors that affect our freediving performance. Some of them become automatic for a while and become reflexes. We start free diving more comfortably, effectively and safely by developing the remaining ones one by one or in combinations. In this way, you will see that your "best scores", called PB (Personal Best), increase rapidly.

  • Relaxation

  • Flexibility

  • Equalization

  • Adaptation to depth

  • Swimming technique and distance

  • CO2 tolerance and urge to breathe

  • Physical fitness

  • Psychological resilience

  • Healthy and balanced diet

  • Sleeping periods

  • Resting periods

Each of the above skills has its own unique working method and requirements. You can put them together in a different combinations that suitable for you; for a certain time period, row and number of sessions. When it all comes together, you can have an overall and greater performance boost.

You may need to practice these subjects in different environments such as pool, land, gym and open water for depth. You should also adapt your training topics according to the season, the possibilities of your location and your general work/social life routines.
