“This man descend 20meters (65feet) to sea floor, hearts slows down to 30beats per minute, squezzes its lung to 1/3 of its initial volume, even without weights he is negatively bouyant enough to strive across the bottom of the sea as if like hunting on land, 2 1/2 minutes of hunting under pressure. He can still manage to stay as long as 5 minutes! - indeed a superhuman.This man from the Badjao tribe has the potential to win our country a gold medal in the olympic games!”
But how long can normal humans hold their breath underwater?
As been written by Kyle Wagner, Holding your breath may not be the flashiest feat of athleticism, but performing it at its highest level is still incredibly impressive, especially since it's something we've all done, and can all relate to. The limits to which some can push breath control, in fact, are more impressive than most people probably know.
He has also stated that for divers, nature helps; all mammals have what's called mammalian diving reflex, which allows them to survive without air for longer periods of time while underwater. (This is why you'll occasionally hear a story about someone surviving for astonishing amounts of time after having fallen into an icy pond.) Training can help, too. One of the problems with holding your breath, it turns out, isn't exactly the lack of oxygen as much as it is the buildup of carbon dioxide; your blood acidifies when carbon builds up from lack of breathing. Training can slow the rate of this acidification, and also lead blood vessels to direct blood away from areas like the hands and feet and reroute it to the brain, and other crucial organs.
After many suggestions on how we humans could do this, he concluded that
“Chances are you won't need to hold your breath for 20 minutes in your lifetime, or even 5 minutes. But the capacity to improve how long you can hold it now into something that seems, on the surface, totally unrealistic remains fascinating.”
