Hey, just wondering how long you guys can hold your breath. Ive been on this crazy spree to hold it for really long amounts of time.

My current record is about 2:35 and im trying to get to atleast 5 minutes.

so how long can you hold yours? in water, with music, just sitting or anything else. Also i wanna know sum good techniques for holding your breath long. Alright cools.

First, I have to kill myself. Then I can hold my breath for a very, very long time.

I can hold my breath for one minute and 30 seconds out of water, submerged in cold water I can hold it for 2 minutes 15 seconds


And please don't hyperventilate to hold your breath longer tounge2 (I didn't really read much of the above so I don't know if your doing it or not) But just because it helps you hold your breath longer does not mean it's safe.

Not to mention it is cheating wink5
