Dry training and preparation for freediving

These 5 areas are covered in Intermediate Freediving Preparation by Waleed Ghatas, a Base Training + program that doesn’t require in-water training, equipment, or a buddy .

  1. Equalization: This is the process of equalizing the pressure in your ears and sinuses as you descend into the water. You can practice this by doing exercises such as Frenzel

  2. CO₂ tolerance: This is the ability to tolerate high levels of carbon dioxide in your body. You can improve this by doing breath-hold exercises such as CO₂ tables and this course we offer will help so much about this training-techniques

  3. Strength training: This involves building strength in your core, back, and leg muscles, which are essential for maintaining proper form and technique while diving. Exercises such as planks, squats, and lunges can help with this 12.

  4. Flexibility and mobility: This involves improving your range of motion and flexibility in your joints and muscles. Yoga, stretching, and foam rolling are great ways to improve flexibility

  5. Mental techniques: This involves developing mental strategies to help you stay calm and focused while diving. Visualization, meditation, and relaxation techniques can help with this

Did you know that not all freediving training has to happen in the water?

That’s right - a lot of key freediving training can happen on land and with no buddy necessary! That means that even if you are landlocked and have no pool near you (or your pool does not allow freediving), your training progress does not have to be interrupted - you can dry train anywhere.
