I'm kinda proud that I have not held my breath properly since like 15 years ago, when I did some snorkling. But with couple "lung cycles" and then holding breath until it feels discomforting, I was still able to do 2 minutes 5 seconds.... Damn, I'm inspired now and I will start diving again maybe.

Firstly great job on the time. Secondly please please add to your video “ don’t do this at home or alone unless you have skilled supervision by a competent freediver “. If you had a blackout would the person videoing you have known the proper technique for recovery? As a trained freediver that has trained with the best people in FREEDIVING and competed in pool competitions the very first rule we are taught is “ never ever dive alone without a competent dive buddy” . A underwater blackout without help is fatal. Please seek proper training and enjoy this sport to the full.

OMG nobody told you that everything gets much more easy if you have something todo take your Rubik cube underwarter oder something else to play with :O :D try to to lean your thinking away from the feeling breathing, contractions and so on... Or just take a go pro and film yourself just do something it would have been much easier to get up to 4 minutes :)

so i usually hold my breath for around 50 seconds, which to my family is a lot and most of them can’t hold their breath that long. i just took three try’s a few minutes ago where first i breathed in through my nose and out my mouth to the point where i was relaxed, took another deep breath and held it. while i was holding my breath i put my head down and tried to think about something besides the fact i was holding my breath. by probably the minute mark my brain started wondering why i wasn’t feeling the “second stage” and then i felt it. at that point my brain was also curious to what the time was and when I saw one minute i kinda when into a bit of shock? idk how to explain it. the second and third stages came very quickly and almost together and that’s the point when i panicked and let go of my breath. i was actually pretty shocked by the first and last time considering i’ve only ever made it to around 56 seconds the first time: 1:05.76 2nd: 1:09.07 3rd: 1:34.43 i know the exact times because i took screenshots and i’m proud, that was in like 10 mins y e e t everyone’s gonna think i’m faking

I always thought holding your breath for 5 minutes was like “ehh.. pathetic can’t you hold it for longer?” Yes I was ignorant but I just tried it and I averaged 18 seconds 😂😂, I learned my lesson and I hold lots of respect for ppl who can go longer than 2 minutes.

I did some personal training like this when I wanted to be a SEAL. Unfortunately I don't meet the physical requirements because of a brain defect I was born with. But I learned something, it's easier to hold your breath on an empty stomach in unheated water and just setting your mind to a memory and trying to remember super specific random things so that you're not focused on your o2 and it's amazing the difference it makes. I had a best time of 6:32. DO NOT TRY THIS BY YOURSELF OR WITHOUT TRAINING, it took me almost 2 months to get that far and it took him weeks to get as far as he did, it's extremely dangerous and shouldn't be attemted.

I think you were breathing in too much. I've found (not an expert) that taking a massive breath builds the pressure in your lungs making you want to breathe more. Take a large breath, not a huge one.

A number of years ago I learned to hold my breath for 5 minutes plus. I did this by going to the pool and hanging my legs over the edge so I was hanging inverted. I got my heart rate down to the 30s and only needed one moderate breath once out of the water again. I found it much easier to do while inverted under water. I want to try that again 20 some years later.

Hi Mike, nice video! I was super surprised when you were stressed out face down in the pool as I had assumed that everyone would feel super happy and stress free in that position! There is a back story on this for me though! As kids we used to do this all the time, pretending to have drowned in the pool to stress mum out, trouble is you had to do it for ages to make her worried.

Also, try exhaling first then going underwater without any air. See how long you can tolerate that for. This will be useful in the real apnea test if you can exhale and then go just that little bit longer.
