Default Exhaling under water

Dear All

I have a question.

Do we require more force to exhale in deep water, compare to shallow water?

Regards

I don't think so. While swimming you are at the surface of the water so water pressure doesn't help or hinder.
If you dive deep it would be easier to breathe out because the water pressure would help.
I had a time when I didn't exhale in deep water properly. But that was, as I found out, because I had fear in deep water.

Best regards

Inge

Yes Inge,

Your right, I plunged into deep pool after a gap of one year.

Depth essentially makes no difference. The real difficulty comes in getting the relaxed slow trickle of bubbles coming out your nose exactly not too fast, not too slow so that when you come around to breathe, your lungs are very close to being empty, so you just have to have a small push out to empty your lungs before quickly breathing in through your mouth at the exact right moment.

I used to have a great problem holding my breath tightly so that I was always short of breath. When I was told to relax by breathing out continuously and slowly through my nose I immediately had great relaxation and improvement, although I am still searching for the precisely controlled relaxed technique that I described above.
