Working out freediving

Before starting this diving, a person must prepare, perform lung warm-up and breathing exercises, as well as physical warm-up of the overall body. By engaging in freediving, it is possible to test the maximum possibilities of your mind and body. In this form of underwater sport, it is possible to learn various exercises and skills to "calm the mind", which helps to hold your breath for longer, says freediver Valters Preimanis, who has been practicing breathing training, freediving and underwater hunting since 2010.
