    Everyone should do the yoga breathing exercise. Inhale to capacity through your nose to the count of four. Hold your breath to the count of seven. Then placing your tongue behind your front teeth, exhale slowly to the count of eight. Repeat a half dozen times or as many as you can. Do it on a regular basis and you should be able to expand your lung capacity.

    I don't know thats actually pretty good. I swam nationally and at a D1 college and if you can nearly do a 75 underwater -- very impressive.

    anyone interested in this topic should check out this book, it pretty much covers the entire subject of holding your breath

    I chain smoke, it's lazy cross training. When I'm getting pounded and held under, my lungs are like "yeah yeah we're used to no air"
