Level 3 Freedive Course +Bluewater Hunting
To become a better freediver you need to train freediving & dive as much as possible. The more time spent diving & training; whether it is static, dynamic or depth training, the better you will become. When it comes to depth at some stage you will reach a plateau, where equalizing can stop you from getting further. At around 30-40m depth your lungs will reach what is called the residual volume. This simply means that your lungs are too compressed for letting air out. The air to equalize will run out and you will not be able to go any deeper. Therefore, sooner or later, almost everybody needs to learn the mouth-fill equalization technique. For many it proves to be a challenge to learn … but it does not have to. The mouth-fill technique is amazingly simple when you break it down in to steps and if you practice both in the water and by dry exercises.
