MOST RECENT

A good entry is an invaluable skill you do on every dive. .
.
Every dive you do starts with an entry, whether you realize it or not, you likely do it the exact same every time.
.
.
You could be doing that in the most efficient manner possible or in a less that ideal manner.
.
.
Here you can see a student starting a good entry. He has done a 90% bend of the waist, has lifted one leg high in the sky, and is just about to do his arm pull. He has not made the most common mistake of starting with the arm pull. .
.
All of my classes have two 3 hours pool sessions to practice techniques like this over and over to develop muscle memory.
.
.
The only way to gain this muscle memory is through repetition; the more the better.
.
As an instructor with 13 years of experience I firmly believe... #MoreTimeEqualsBetterResults
.
.
I will be adding classes to the schedule this week. Sign up for the newsletter to be notified the second I post the courses @ www.ImmersionFreediving.com/newsletter or you can DM me your email address and I will add it for you.

Immersion Freediving 2 hours tune-up session. I worked with Beca last Saturday. She had taken freediving courses with PADI, FFI, and SSI. She was referred to me by the AIDA FB site.
.
.

I worked with her for 2 hours. She wanted to learn how to train effectively in the pool for when she is away from the ocean.
.
.

I taught her how and why negative pressure dives are so beneficial, and what mental strategies she should be employing during them. I believe this is often overlooked during typical negative pressure dive training. I also shared her my 2 favorite dynamic style exercises for people that are new to pool training.
.
.

These tune-up sessions are only available to certified freedivers.
.
.

Ted came highly recommend from within the Freediving community and I can see why! Within one 2-hour tune up we went through multiple training techniques and skills to focus on preparing for greater depths. He made sure that I would not only clean up previously learned skills but that I left the session having learned something new. Communication before and after the session was great and I hope to be able to return to work with Immersion Freediving again soon!
.

I enjoyed working with you Beca! .

1 minute video on how to tell if you are wearing the correct amount of weight while freediving.
.
.

Most all fatalities occur in freediving because the diver is overweighted. This causes them to sink it to the bottom if they blackout, as opposed to floating in the surface.
.
.

If your buddy is looking for the next grouper while you are blacked out and sinking to the bottom this will not end well.
.
.
Video will show you to how to tell if you are correctly weighed.

Need HELP on a title for a freediving presentation I'm giving for @thebluewildexpo Wild April 14&15 in Fort Lauderdale.
.
.
I will be giving a presentation on equalizing. I will be focusing on educating the audience on the difference between Valsalva and Frenzel, and why it's so critical for freedivers to use the Frenzel method.
.
.
I need a title for the presentation so when people see the schedule they understand what I'm covering. .
I only have 30 characters including spaces for the title.
"Learn the Frenzel Maneuver" is 26 characters. The problem with this title is most people have no idea what they heck Frenzel is.
.
They typically don't know what the heck Valsalva is either.
.
.
I will be posting this on FB and Instagram. If someone provides me a title that I will actually use, I'll give you or someone who needs it access to the Road Map to Frenzel video series, 13 videos with 2 hours of content on how I teach Frenzel, some Immersion stickers, and a t-shirt or hat. $60 in free stuff.
.
.
MUST BE 30 characters or less including spaces.

Students final evaluation is performing an underwater blackout rescue.
.

They must dive down to me, grab me under my arm, assist me to the surface. While taking me to the surface they must watch my airway. If I release air from my mouth they have no more than 2-3 seconds to close my airway shutting mouth, and pushing my maks on my face and take me to the surface.
.
.

From there, they must put me on my back, perform the switch up move, remove my mask, perform blow, tap, talk, if no response, provide 2 rescue breaths, if no response, call for help and provide 1 breath every 5 seconds and tow to the boat.
.
.

That's a lot of work! If it's not right, then they hear the most common thing I say during a course, "Do it again!" .

I’ve basically finished filming the Road Map to Frenzel video series, will likely make some small adjustments before it goes live though. At this point its 13 videos with over 2 hours of content covering every single thing I know about teaching frenzel. .
.

I’ve done over 500 individual 1 on 1 Skype sessions teaching people how to do frenzel since 2011.
.
.

The Road Map to Frenzel video series will be accessible via Immersion Freediving Inner circle. The Inner Circle is member only section of the website. You will be able to purchase the road map to frenzel video series at the store and then get your user name and password emailed to you so you can access the videos on the website. .
.

This is what I call an interactive video series. At the end of each video you will be directed to different videos based on if you were able to accomplish the step or if you have a problem. That way each student will get the information they need based on what is happening with them.
.
.

The video series basically follows the exact step by step process I use when teaching frenzel.
.
.

Now comes the had part of integrating this with my website and store.

Filming a video on the dive reflex to go along with most recent column I wrote for @spearingmagazine . New issue is shipping out this week which includes the holiday buying guide.
.
.

Hot tip: take the buying guide circle all the stuff you want in red marker and leave it open on the significant others side of the bed. It worked for us as kids I’m sure it will work for us as adults.

The number #1 rule in freediving is protect the airway.
.
.
The
Here you can see Ricardo having a mock loss of motor control.
.
We are evaluating can the student correctly handle this situation by protecting the airway.
.
.

The studnet's hand is there so that IF Ricardo blacked out and fell forward, his airway would be unable to go into the water.
.

The #1 rule in freediving in protect the airway. If your buddy is 50ft down the reef trying to shoot a bigger fish than you, I assure you they are unable to protect your airway.

Safe freediving is so simple you can sum it up in 3 hashtags.

When I made the decision to start freediving and spearfishing there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted to take a course to better prepare myself for this challenging sport.
.
At this years Blue Water Expo, I was informed by several people, if you wanted to “learn from the BEST” Ted Harty with Immersion Freediving was the way to go.
.
At the expo Immersion was having a contest for their 4-day intermediate course, and lucky for me.. I won! .
The course was much more than I could have ever imagined. Not only does Ted show you the physical aspects of freediving but the psychological and physiological effects on the body.
.
.

The most important part of the course is the safety instruction that you receive. I feel 100% confident that if one of my buddies needs my help, I’ll be able to assist them and even save a life. .
.

I have never felt more comfortable in the water. I recommend his class to both beginner and seasoned divers. Plus, he makes mean bbq. .

Image this, your buddy comes up from a dive blacks out and then starts sinking down to the bottom of the ocean.
.
.

How confident are you that your buddy would survive that experience.
Do you know what do to?
.
.

Are you even close enough to do anything? .
.
If you are 50-100ft away from your buddy when they surface then its pretty much already over.
.
.

Freediving instructors are all over the place now. If not my class at least take someone's freediving class and learn how to save someone if they were to black out.
.
.

If you think you know your limits, are in-tune with your body, and would just come up before you would black-out, please take the time to read this article I wrote from Spearing Magazine. It has actually video footage of 2 spearfishing blackouts, and explains what is going on @ Immersionfreediving.com/blackout link in bio.
.

Dive safe out there, it's not even that hard.

Proper streamlining is extremely important in freeidiving and is something that most freedivers and spearfisherman pay little attention to.
.
Water is 800 times denser than air, so the amount of surface area you have to push through the water makes a huge difference. .
.

Every dive in the ocean I will be making adjustments to your form, all in an attempt to reduce your drag so its takes less work to do the dive. Let's be honest, I'm lazy so I want to position my body so that I have to do the least amount of work.
.
Tighten up your form, do less work, increase your capacity as a diver.
.

See 2017 course schedule link is in bio.

Boat briefing. .
.
Students get a very thorough briefing as the boat heads up the new river. .
.
Students are told what the game plan is as well as the most common mistakes they will make in water, hopefully to stop them from happening.

The ride out to the ocean goes through some of the most expensive real estate in the USA. The houses and yachts are crazy. .
.
I refer to that whole area as the place where all the boat captain and Freediving instructors live :) .

From: @immersionfd " Shot from my last dive down to 70m (230ft) during #DejaBlue8. I had a blast being down here for 3 weeks.
.
.
I had just as much fun diving for me as I did watching my students smash PB's and break national records.
.
.
.
Kathy and I are on the boat today breathing deeply and often while cheering everyone on. I'll jump in the water to coach my students when they surface to make sure they get the white cards they deserve.
.
.
When we get back Kathy and I one weekend off and then my busiest teaching season to date starts. Will be doing 5 course per month till November. Gotta be careful what you wish for.

Here you can see a firefighter performing a blackout rescue.
.
.
The number 1 rule in Freediving is protect the airway. When someone blacks out in the water the body knows that if it takes a breath now, it will get water in the lungs violating the number 1 rule in Freediving. .
.

When babies are born if they are not breathing the doctors and midwifes are trained to blow across the eyes as it creates a breathing response. .
.
When you blow across the ruses of a blacked out freediver the brain recognizes its no longer underwater and its safe to breath. This is why a strong breath across the eyes generates a fast breathing response.
.
.
In my classes I always want to explain why it is I'm having student do something and why what I'm saying works.
.
.
Learn these lifesaving rescue skills and take a Freediving class. If not mine, any class from a recognized agency. .
.
Be prepared and confident to take care of your buddy if they were to black out.

Here you can see students learning about breathing.
.
.
They learn not only to take a bigger breath, they specific breathing techniques that allow them increase their bottom time and feel more comfortable at depth.
.
.
Student typically repeat these exercises 15 times in the classroom in order to make sure they stick.
.
As an instructor I know the repetition fixes everything and this is one of the reason my classes are longer. This is time well spent as I've had many a spearfisherman complain that even a year after the course they can hear my voice in their heading counting the breath up as they are out diving.
.
.
My past students know my favorite thing to say is, "Do it again!" .
.

Students learn to take the biggest breath of their life in my classroom sessions.
.
.
They learn to use their diaphragm, chest, shoulders, then neck.
.
.
Want more bottom time? Take down more fuel. You rib cage is constricting how big a breath you are taking. By taking a breath my way you are maximizing the size of the cage therefore increase the fuel you take donw and your bottom time as well.
.

Here you can a student exhaling the last few feet from the surface. .
.
Most Freedivers hold their breath till the surface, once they surface they exhale then inhale. This means you can't put oxygen into the system until you exhale.
.
.
By exhaling the last couple of feet now as soon as your airway hits the surface you put oxygen in the system. This gets oxygen in the system 2-3 seconds faster than the other way.
.
.
The difference between a loss of motor control and a black out 2-3 seconds.
So on your next dive trip consider implementing this procedure that I teach all my students.
.
.
Comment or tag a diver that you think doesn't know about this.
Dive safe its not even that hard!
