    Timer Shown. On November 8, 2013 at 2:55 AM I attempted to break Harry Houdini's record of 3 minutes 30 seconds( possibly 3:45 depending on your source).
    This is what happened. (spoiler alert ahead) Check out the first video tvclip.biz/video/ndsx0BlNIOg/video.html for an added POV. Watch them simultaneously if you like. I broke his record. I clobbered it. I sucker punched his record in the gut.

    Do you voluntarily swallow each time you have a contraction? Thanks

    Very nice, please be careful! It would be interesting to listen to your heart as you do a breath hold like this.

    It is interesting whether you will be able, by means of breath to inflate a stomach that it became big and round?

    you beat your record by 2 minutes and 40 seconds! o.O Hard to believe actually. Good luck on trying to get to the 7 minute mark! My record is 3.29, so close to 3.30 -_-

    Actually it's not very hard to break this record. Free diving breathing techniques will allow almost everyone to surpass 3 minutes. Also, this guy is not breathing up properly. He needs to breath from his diaphragm instead of only from his chest.

    and by the way I do 2.30s without hyperventilate which is super dangerous.

  • La_Mine 97139
    La_Mine 97139 3 years ago

    Hey man, Does it hel you to freedive?
    Im doing around 2.30s static PB on my bed as you. Am I right if I say that it is much harder to do static on the bed than into the water?

    • R. Jordan Hinson
      R. Jordan Hinson  3 years ago +1

      +La_Mine 97139 I think it is much much much harder in the water. In water there are many more factors to consider and more danger. A few being: stability, safety from boats or hazards, buoyancy, visibility, water leaking and dripping into your nose and mouth, temperature, disorientation, muffled hearing, potential for drowning etc.
      Please Please Please do not try maximum breath holds under water without multiple trained professionals who are fully prepared to revive you if you should pass out. It's not worth your life. Have fun with it. I always limit my dives underwater to well under what I know I can do. FOr example my max underwater dives are 1 minute ten seconds although I can go much longer. Kicking in the water burns oxygen enormously.

    You are doing wrong !!!! You can not hyperventilate!

    • Da Realist

      Hyperventilation is only dangerous in water bro if he hits a black out he will just start breathing again

    • Jorrit Bruinsma

      +Jonathan Martinez Hyperventilating before any breath hold is extremely dangerous and should always be avoided!
      The build up of CO2 in your body tells you when to breathe, not the lack of O2. Getting rid of all the CO2 in your body can cause you to black out. If you can only do it with hyperventilating I suggest you just train some more... A 6+min breath hold is also possible without hyperventilating.

      wrong... you must hyperventilate. Only that way will you rid your body of enough CO2 to postpone the diaphragm contractions that come with acidosis.

    great breath hold, I think your body does the same thing as mine which is diaphragm contractions to start with and then the ribcage starts doing that as well at the end. I gotta get one of those clip-on finger O2 recorders to check on oxy levels

  • DJIGGZ92

    Wow... that's insane. I've only recently timed myself and I'm quite casual about it. I try to practice some breathing steps like purging and generally oxygenating my body as well as I can, and only attempt it when I've been calm and haven't exerted energy for a good amount of time. I just broke my record of 3:25 today by 5 seconds. I'm actually annoyed I didn't just go 1 second longer haha. I'm a little worried about the health risks though... and I definitely don't push myself to the limit. I don't last too much longer after my body begins to have those contractions as I'm worried about blacking out even though I think I stay well away from that stage. The internet has a lot of ambiguous information on breath holding. Anyway, just thought I'd share that. It's really just a curious momentary hobby of mine after watching Blaine's ted talk haha. Congratulations on your time though! Stay safe!
    P.S. I read somewhere that lying down isn't recommended as you could swallow your tongue if you black out. Probably bogus, but thought I'd mention it :)

    Great effort, Jordon!
    Two questions: 1. how big does your chest expand from empty lungs to maxed out lungs? 2. How long can you hold your breath if you exhale then only take one deep breath?
    I'm looking forward to seeing more videos from you in the future.
