Freediving is also called "apnea" and is a submarine practice involving freedivers who engage themselves in a blocking system of respiration. Several people say that practicing freediving helps divers with many short-term as well as long-term advantages including greater breathing control techniques, tension management, and muscle stress relief.

But in old traditions, freediving was amazingly normal and around 50 meters in one breath were the deepest freediving depths! Freediving is a competitive sport worldwide, and skilled divers can be immersed in water for up to 22 minutes.
