FREEDIVING TRAINING PROGRAM
Static Apnea (+Special Pure O2)
Freediving is just as much a sport as it is recreation and having a wonderful experience. As in all sports, you have to train to get better. The better trained you are the more you will enjoy freediving. Holding your breath static, which mean in the water and without moving is the Basic Freediving discipline to master first. If you can’t hold your breath without moving you won’t dive very far for very long. During your Freediving master course we will practice STA multiple times per week in various different ways. In average our master student reach a 5 to 6minutes static breath hold, very helpful to feel confortable during deep dives and fantastic skill for spearfishing. There is a variation of the static apnea discipline where its possible to pre-breathe 100% oxygen prior to the breath hold. Pure O2 STA can be organised during your freediving master course, it’s a very good training to get use to diaphragme contractions. The master course will end with our 10minutes STA challenge !
Free Immersion and Constant Weight ( Fin / Nofin / Monofin )
Widely regarded as the most prestigious of the freediving disciplines, Constant Weight Apnea requires the freediver to ascend and descend along the dive-line without touching it and without altering their weight during the dive. When using a monofin, the diver usually puts one or both arms over the head and employs a ‘dolphin kick’ to propel themselves through the water. Bifins are generally less efficient than a monofin used with good technique but dives of more than 100m have still been made with them successfully. The usual technique for bifins is with long straight legs, relaxed ankles and arms held by the sides.With both techniques, the diver will usually swim down to about 20 or 25m before entering a freefall which is made possible by the effect of the water pressure on the air in the lungs. This negative buoyancy has to be overcome on the way up. Our master freediver can freedive comfortably to appx 45meters after only 3-5 weeks of intense training. Often described as the purest form of Freediving, constant weight no fins requires the freediver to descend and ascend along the dive-line without using fins, without changing their weighting, without using the rope. It’s the most physically and technically demanding of the depth disciplines because it requires a high rate of work and a long dive-time. For many of our Freedive master however, it’s also the most fun because it allows for complete freedom in the water !
