    Breath in.... hold for few sec, breath out.... hold for few sec.... just remember.... don't hold too long or you'll have this un-controllable urge to beath fast and alot. Control is the key.... let your lung fully use the O2 of each breath.

  • I tried that but I seem to breath in deeper / longer but breath out faster/ shorter. Is that ok?

    No.... breathing speed maintance normal. Don't breath-in too deeply (you'll float). The method is to use up as much O2 in the air as possible. But breathing out too fast.... your lung isn't taking in most of the O2 in the air.

    Just curious. How about taking short breath in and out? Will that help?

    Don't think so..... after a few quick short breath... your body wouldn't get enough O2 and you'll automaticly start taking quicker or longer breath. ;)

    We should always try to breath normally..... not short or long breath.... just normal breath at normal speed, with just a bit of waiting in-between breathing in or out.

    But I must said.... this works for me.... and most of my friends... but might not works for you.  ;D

  • Does a weight of a diver determine her air intake? Or do smokers use more air? I've dived with both an overweight diver and a smoker, but they seems to be using less air than me. I dont smoke and not overweight. This is irritating.

    I'm overweight.... so, proper breathing techique seems to be your issue.  ;D

    Btw... in most cases (when we breath normally), Male tends to use up air faster than Female, Overweight divers tends to use up air faster than normal weight divers.... not too sure about smokers, as my smoking dive buddies are very skinny  ;D

    So... proper breathing techique will help alot.  ;)
