Hello everybody my name is N'ael
I'm an SSI Dive master and a PADI Rescue Diver, and I've been diving around the world for about 10 years now
And I've to see that the one main concern of the beginners are the air consumption
During the divethey are always afraid that
They are going to be a burden for the group because they use their air very quickly they want to explore more
But they can't because of the air consumption
So I know that air consumption depends a lot of things
Could depend of your lung capacity could depend the depth of the dive
The way I breathe in the water the what we call the breathing rate
That can calculate at the end of the dive
But I want to give you the tips that I use
To reduce my air consumption and be able to do a 1 hour and a half foot dive by using
half of my tank in a twenty meters deep dive
So my first tip would be to be aware of how you breathe
because you're underwater
Your brain is going to say "stop! Hold your breath! It's underwater
You can't breathe!"
so you really have to train it to just make that switch and say ok
I'm underwater. I can breathe.
it can be just
consciously breathing
in and out
Usually what I do is, I breath in
I hild my breath for just let's say two seconds and
Then let it go
But I don't do that when I go up and down
Because it could be realy dangerous for your lungs to just hold your breath
but if you're stable and
and enjoying your dive you can train yourself to do that
or you just go in the pool and train yourself to just
consciously breathe the more efficient way
Don't breathe how to breath until your brain says BREATHE
Then go
you just inhale
sometimes you can
practice it
when going to sleep
It helps me a lot
To put me to sleep when I consciously concentrate on the way I breath
It helps me relax, and enjoy more my dive to
concentrate on the way breathe
Just try and get used to do that because I know it's not the regular way for people to breathe
There is a popular belief that smokers are
Better diver in the way that they don't use as much
air as others that just because they already know how to
Take deep breath
not consciously in the way of diving
But they come to see breath in, hold and then exhale.
You don't need to start smoking
To have a better air consumption. It just depends on the way that you think of breathing
My second tip would be to
work on your buoyancy
I started diving when I was a teenager and
Honestly, I was all over the place. I kicked the bottom. I was up and down all the time, and it's just
When I started to work on my buoyancy
that my air consumption started decreasing
simply because when you put air on your jacket.
You are using the same air that you are breathing
So that's air that you are not gonna use to breathe
That you put on your jacket
the best way to reduce the air comsuption is by having a neutral buoyancy
Which means just the right amount of weight
So that you'll be able to be comfortable in a dive
that could be tricky because it depends on every
situation, but over the time you'll learn how much weight you need
But buoyancy is not just being overweight or
Just having the right amount of weight. It's also
The way your body is under water.
One of my tricks to be neutraly buoyant
is to contract my abdominals and just
Have a very flat body
by contracting that
Part of my body, I allow my back to be completely straight and to my fin to be
natural extent of my body when I'm
I also not kick up and down I frog kick most of the time
That way if I need to go up or down. I just use my breath or my lungs as
My buoyancy device
if I need to go up. I just take a deep breath
if I want to go down, I just
I know it sounds really complicated right now
But try it in a pool!
Once you get the trick when you once you get that feeling in your body that you are completely
flat I think you might understand what I'm talking about
One exercise I had myself do a lot of times
is that on the pool you know you have theses
Square things that make lines and I try to stay at the depth of that line for five to ten minutes
Just to make sure that my buoyancy is perfect, and I won't have any issue in the water
It won't be perfect for the first time I've been diving for ten years
I get some tricks
and I
grew up diving so I think it was more easy for me to just adapt and grew up diving than for some people to
conciously make the effort for their body to
Take the diving position
So I know I was verry lucky to start diving young so maybe what I'm telling you is like
Nonsense and you say you're never gonna be able to do it. Just try it and
Talk to your divemaster of what you could do
If you're not able to have a flat back
for any reason
Maybe they have an alternative or other tricks that they could provide you
Finally my last tip is
Completely on the way to breathe
It might sound a bit crazy
Also, but I'm gonna add some videos of me
Demonstrating it so it makes a little more sense
Maybe you already know that there is different ways of breathing for
Example I can inhale from my belly or my side
and what I do underwater is mainly
Breathing from this part of my body not this part.
That way I can be wider
But not deeper
by getting myself wider
I also allow myself to be neutrally buoyant in the way i breathe.
Of course if I really wants my lungs to be
The device that put me up. I'm not gonna do that but if I wanna breathe and not move
I'm gonna breathe this way.
It might take you a couple of attempt to do this
I know it's not that easy to do but once you get the trick you know
again try this technique
While being on the commute or
trying to get asleep because it's not
irrrelevant time to do it and once you get the
try it on the pool, and you'll see how different it is
So I am aware that these are not the easiest tricks
You've seen you have to work on your body you have to understand. How it work is where the best tricks
I had during my diving career
So I hope they helped you at least give you a bit of a clue of
What you could change in your way of diving
If you have any other tricks that you used and that worked a lot for you
please let
them on the comment section
Everybody is different everybody
evolved on the diving differently so if
this worked for me it might not work for you, but
Something that someone else experienced could be the best match for you
I do scuba diving videos every month. I cover a subject that
You request or that I think it's important so if you have anything any question
Let me know in the comment section. I'll try to
Have an entire topic on that or at least
Respond on the comment section.
otherwise I am doing travel videos on this channel
Sometimes involving scuba diving so you can always subscribe to my channel to be notified every time
I upload a video
you can give me a thumbs up to say that you liked this video
And you want to see more
and I hope to see you next time bye
