    [Guide] Swim underwater longer

    This guide on wikihow.com shows you how to swim underwater longer. I'm going to go test this in my pool in a few to see if it works... Here it is.
    I just found another way to breath under water longer (this one can cost some money) so make a snorkel!

    Edit: I tested it and it works pretty good.

    Thanks, I used to do this for swimming freshman year... The basic concept I got from it was: The more you hold your breath, the longer you can do it in the long run.

    Also when your swimming, if you think of something else, it always helps.

    when i was young and played soccer and had really bad asthma i used to put duct tape over my mouth and run long distances, this would force my body to better use the small oxygen that it was getting from my nose, since normally when you run you use your mouth which can take in and exhale more oxygen.
    this would probably take longer than your method but over time, i went for 78% capacity to 105% (NOTE last measurement was a long time ago)
    When in doubt, empty the magazine, They dont pay you to bring home bullets

    I'm a diver myself, and that method works, it highs up your lung volume.

    You can train urself by holding ur breathe if your bored. I can hold my breathe up to 80seconds.
    Try relax urself and not thinking of anything.
