Knowledge is the key!
Lately I’ve finished my second freediving masterclass, which was the first one in Poland. Participants had an unique opportunity to get familiar with my training methods (pool, dry and physical), diet, supplementation, my approach to psychology and generally everything that I know about freediving. There was no secrets and I have answered every question to the best of my current knowledge.
Let’s talk about dive responses
On Saturday morning we have started at 9:00 sharp and discussed my approach to freediving, what role it plays in my life and how I mix it with normal work. I talked about physiology and many dive responses we have as well as how to strengthen them.
It’s important to start strengthening them gradually, not all at once. I have discussed different strategies regarding direct preparation before maximum performance and also during the performances.
what type of training actually matters?
I have showed charts with all of my training and competition dives, what changes in my approach, training, diet, supplementation were crucial in reaching new personal bests. Generally I have discussed and flagged important factors that contributed to each of my progress across the years.
Guess what? Not everything I’ve done was right, there are some changes that were bad and I have wasted some time/years by doing them. Now If I could just go back in time and work from the beginning in every compartment, my progress would be much faster.
Learn from my experience
Luckily You have the option and You can learn from my mistakes! Get my 7 years of experience, all of my knowledge in a nutshell!
4 hours passed and we went for a dinner, well deserved break.
Afterwards we have continued with training plans, what and how I do. I have explained all of the exercises I do and later how I combine them into training plans.
Time passed quickly and at 18:30 we finished the day. We have also started psychology topic which we later continued on Sunday.
Sunday we have started in a pool at 8:00. I have divided people into a groups of 3. Each group had 1 hour with me in a pool. During that time I have video recorded everyone from all angles. Now, after the course I go through the videos in slow motion, where I analyze everyone’s technique and send emails back with my personal feedback.
After the pool session we continued with theory from about 12:00. We had finished very interesting topic of psychology.
have you ever wonder what to eat, when to it etc in order to boost your performance?
Afterwards we spoke about supplementation and how it can boost our recovery.
In the end there was my favorite topic – Diet 🙂
It was long and fruitful discussion but we have managed to finish around 16:30!
The course was a great success and brought me a lot of satisfaction. I love the feeling of teaching and passing the knowledge, especially in masterclasses where we talk about the advanced stuff.
If You want to organise such masterclass in Your country,make it happen and contact me for details! My calendar for 2017 is limited and bookings fill up quickly!
