A new iOS app has been released that helps the freediver, spearfishing enthusiast or heck, anyone who wants to improve their aerobic performance.
The Apnea Diver app features a series of static training tables that the developers claim, if practiced three to four times per week with a buddy, could increase the capacity of one’s lungs and lengthen breath-hold time.
Users have the option to figure out their maximum breath-hold time via a stopwatch screen included in the app and saving the result to the app’s logbook.
The app also features three breathing training tables. The first — “O2” — is meant to help increase oxygen intake; the second table — “CO2” — is designed to help expel carbon dioxide; and the third table is called “Pranayama,” which the user can utilize to warm up the lungs before a dive session or just to meditate and relax.
The number of cycles for each exercise can be set by the user, and the logbook stores all the completed tables.
