Last night I went out to the tongelreep with a tweaked Pyramid schedule for DNF training. It’s a shortend version of the one William Trubridge tought in his CNF course. Not the whole schedule, but half-way into his schedule. The complete schedule featured a build up phase to a certain plane and after that it would gradually go back to the start of the schedule.
Freediving 25 meters of DNF I take about 24-25 secondes, on which the following schedule is based.
- 6 x 25 meter starting every 1 minute 10 seconds
- 6 x 25 meter starting every 1 minute
- 6 x 25 meter starting every 50 seconds
- 4 x 25 meter starting every 45 seconds
Totalling 550 meter in 21 minutes and 550 seconds immersed.
This is a very good schedule to start with. During the following weeks I’ll be adjusting it to a level William Trubridge made me do in his course.
The 25 meter pool in the Tongelreep is perfectly in distance, but the pool depth is 5 meters. This makes it all a little harder as you really have to worry about your altitude in the water. On the other hand, what better training circumstance could I have for improving my awareness of altitude.
