If you hold your breath too long you will pass out.

yeah, you can't die by holding your breath(unless maybe you're underwater) because you'll go unconscious

Tried once, my method was taking multiple breaths without exhaling...

Started coughing at 6 seconds...

Now to try again.

EDIT: 2 breaths in without exhaling got me 52 seconds.

I think I managed 5 minutes once before, by managing to recycle used air. Also, my lung capacity was much better, due to the fact I was in the school choir, and we were made to do breathing exercises to help sing long notes. Plus I used to swim a lot.

Quite surprising how my capabilities have been limited by my lack of exercise.

1:10, I about died. For some reason I find it easier to hold my breath underwater. And listening to music made it a lot worse, I think that made it 47 seconds or something. o_O By the way, 5 freakin' minutes?! eek2 I would pass out.

I haven't timed myself yet but I know a good tip is to busy yourself; distract yourself from holding your breath. I saw this guy going for the world record holding his breath underwater and he had small toy blocks, like a square, triangle, circle, and he was putting them into the corresponding slots on a block. ( It was really just an infant's toy, but it did the job of taking his mind away from his breath ) There were several other things he had while under the tank, and he went to the next as he finished the one before.

53 seconds

i was watching some show where they were teaching how to scuba dive so they taught someone how to hold his breath a really long time, like a news reporter or something who hadn't done it before

does anyone know how to train really long breath holding?

my longest was probably a minute and a half, i timed it with a stopwatch while floating in a pool, people started laughing at me and joking cause i was doing it so long.

i've heard people who are fully out of body through meditation can cease breathing for practically forever.

to train holding your breath, hold your breath. seriously

unless you want to do the professional breath holding in which case there are psychological techniques to putting yourself in a different place.
