To start practicing, test your current breath holding capacity. First, get a stopwatch, and then sit or lie down comfortably. Breathe slowly, normally for 2 minutes. Then take a deep breath and exhale as much as you can. Hold your breath and start the timer. When you can’t hold out any longer, inhale and turn off the clock.

When checking the results, if you can hold your breath for 1 minute or less, after practicing, you can hold your breath for about 3 minutes. If you can hold your breath for at least 1 minute and 30 seconds, after practicing it can be up to 4 minutes. And if you hold your breath for more than 2 minutes, after practicing you can completely hold your breath for 5 minutes!

Relaxation is the key

The most important part of practicing holding your breath underwater is relaxation. You need to completely relax your mind, your breath, and your muscles. Tight muscles cause your body to use more oxygen, causing you to hold your breath for less time. You have to practice calmness, letting go of stress and anxiety. Only with complete relaxation can you achieve the best results.
