- Training methods (cardio and muscle)
- Dive response (excercises and pulsedroptests)
- Videofilming of technique
- Spirometri (lungvolume in/out of water)
- Mouthfillexcercises and negative dives
- The ear - how does it work (frenzel equalizing excercises, neti cleansing).
- Yoga for freedivers (breathing excercises, lung stretching etc)
- Hyperventilation experiments
- Walking apnea (lactic acid training)
- Theory on the dive response
- Diet and nutrition (short term / long term).

Philosophy behind my clinics:
Its all about identifying the factors that will make you reach your limit in one deep or long dive. I am not an athletic person, I have not a history of putting time into either muscular or cardiovascular training. I have spent more time finding the small details of technique, diet and warm-up proceedures. Someone with better physics (and bigger lungs) than me should be able to use my techniques and go deeper than me.
I also stress that there is not one way to improve - there are several ways. Sometimes it is a question of personal taste. I will deliver a lot of options to choose from. You yourself will have to make yourself a better freediver.

Since I do not work with any certification system or fixed trainingprograme I focus on evaluating individual needs. Freediving is so much more complicated than scuba diving and there are still parts of a freediving perfomance based on intuition. Following a manual based on stamdards and levels can be limiting.

I ask only one question: what stops you from going deeper/further?

Two tools

I have exceeded all my expectations on my body thanks to two significant factors: practicing yoga and using the dive respone. The mechanisms of a real dive response I have found out by working with Sebastian Murat during a clinic. In order to prove the signifance of the dive respons to myself I did a 100 meter no fins pool dive during the world championships. With no warm-up and no ventilation and no suit I spent the first 30 seconds of the dive breatholding without moving in order to let the dive response kick in.

Yoga gives us a holistic view on our bodies. You have to dive with all parts of your body. Yoga teaches us lung stretching, muscle warm-up, calming and oxygenating breathing techniques, but most of all - training in focus and awareness. I have picked 2o asanas and some of the pranayama and dharana techniques, that I find suitable for freediving.

If you are happy and healthy - you will also be a better freediver.


I have several assistants.

I work with Annelie Pompe, a PT with an expertise in cardiovascular and muscular training aswell as specialized knowledge about nutrition.

She developed from a 20 meter diver to 50 meters in just 3 months. She is a dive master that has won competitions in fitness, climbing and mountainbike.

Currently she is working as a freedive trainer i Dahab, Egypt.
