Re: Training for Freediving

I would think you want want to bias almost exclusively to aerobic type of conditioning as that will make your muscles more efficient with handling oxygen which might translate to being able to function longer with a given amount of oxygen in your system.

Re: Training for Freediving

This is a novel request for insight. Thank you.

Really the way to tackle this, remember that you need to be power efficient per kick cycle. Meaning, more moving more metres per kick quickly but with less effort.

With that in mind, you have compare to a soccer player attacking the box, or the sprinter. Speed and the ability to recover.

Louie Simmons. Westside barbell. Is powerlifting focused, but he professes that a strong posterior chain results In Stronger faster athletes and has produced some fast athletes.
So look at it.

Is a quickly version, and could be of some use. I would read some of the older posts regarding westside and you will find a couple of in the know people.

I am not sure if you are going for metres deep or for shallow, longer bottom time but regardless...

If you can find stig'S book. It will help.
