Here is the beginning phase of my 80 meter dive, filmed by the competitions organiser Stanley who’s following me down to 42 meters 😊 You can see me doing my last couple of kicks and then starting my freefall for the ride down! 🎥: @stanley_sradaputta#mares#maresjustaddwater
Your breath is the strongest reflex of life. Pause + hold your breath right now. ... . The time it takes for you to breathe again, the intensity of urge to breathe, the immediacy of impulse to move the CO2 out is hardwired into your brain. Don’t eat, no problem. No water, no problem. No breath?! Big problem. Training yourself to pause your breath has massive benefits. Increasing your CO2 tolerance helps your body use oxygen more efficiently. Creating a greater relaxation response will assist you in every facet of your interactions + experiences throughout your days. If it’s so important to breathe, why not pay closer attention + care to your breath? #life#reflex#breathhold#kumbhaka#pranayama#strongmind#co2#o2#oxygen#freediving#tolerance#relax#pause#care#health#control#happiness#breathguidance
There is a simple thought i wanted to share with all of you. A thought what becomes from my own struggles and challenges in my freediving journey. It’s about the expectations we tend to live by - the expectation of endless fun.
Going deep either in personal development or in any other challenge is not supposed to be fun. People tend to lose motivation if the fun part gets over. Let’s make it straight. It may be fun but for sure it should not be taken as a rule. Don’t fall for this type of illusions. In every challenge where we strive to become a stronger person or either an exceptional performer in any kind of sport or activity - reaching to the higher levels, fun is being replaced by satisfaction. Therefore satisfaction occurs when the preparation meets a successful execution. The blueprint for successful execution is very simple - it’s the hours you’ve spent working on your target goal. Working towards any goal requires willingness to stay out of comfortzone. As the difficult and level increases, the period of time being out of comfortzone also increases. We shall adapt and get used to it in order to keep moving towards our goals instead of not falling for the illusional expectations. As a side effect and a bonus, we will notice a big growth in mental aspect. Slowly-slowly we become more stronger. If we are wise enough, we can use the experience as a tool to implement the mastered wisdom in any other field in our lives. Think about it! 🙏🥇
La mejor manera de empezar el día, bien pronto. Y de regalo el amanecer.
A great way to start the day, very early. The sunrise comes in the pack
Thanks @northdivinglanzarote for the great tips 😊
Mission accomplished. Briefing done. New goals set. It’s getting serious. This is it for now. Job well executed and it really couldn’t be better. We did a huge step forward this time. Farewell for now.
If you want to do big stuff in this sport, you mainly depend on two factors: courage and people behind you. Everything else is manageable afterwards. On the left - lovely Chiara. Always there at the center to support and motivate me before and after the trainings. Whether i fcuk it up or not, she’s always honest and straight on it. On the right - superb coach Mr. Marco aka Rasta. The man who creates champions. Well, guess it’s enough said to describe him. A very smart man. There are few more people who are involved in this journey, appareantly i couldn’t teleport them to the picture on time. Will surely introduce some of them later during the journey. Now taking it easy for few weeks to cool down and to process all the experience and information received during these two weeks of hard work. Then back to diving related exercises and trainings. Next training camp in few months. 🇪🇪😎
