I don't know what it is about Austen but he gets me commenting and discussing my background where I normally do not. I've commented a few times on his videos and am a former Seal. I can attest to the fact that Drownproofing is the second hardest evolution in all of BUDS (Pool Comp is numero uno). For those interested in pursuing a life in the Teams, and for Austen in preparation for round 2, the secret which completely changed my water life forever, doubled my breath hold overnight, is relaxation. You're likely wondering what the hell I'm talking about? When you are running out of air and you get that first throat gulp, you are only at the halfway mark. No kidding. I had a 2:10-2:25 breath hold. Class proctor gives a speech about relaxing, truly relaxing, staying calm mentally, and my breath hold shot to 4:47. No stress stretches your oxygen. During knot tying, I did all 5 on 1 breath - and that's after messing up my Bowlin knot twice. Just relax. Stay calm. Stress burns through oxygen so don't stress. It seems unbelievable but I'm living proof. I'll be looking out for the retest Austen. I'm damn impressed you posted this video of you failing. Baller move. EDIT: One more tip Austen. When executing the tied up 100m, don't lift your head up directly in front of you (to take a breath). It stops or severely hinders your momentum. It also burns through A LOT of oxygen and builds up lots of lactic acid (especially for a bulky guy like you). Rather, tilt your head to the side as in freestyle. Your timing should be such that right after an especially hard kick, while skimming the water, turn your head sideways, ingest the air (your exhale occurs just prior to and during the aforementioned "especially hard kick"). Obviously, you are not kicking during the inhale. You got this my man!

I was practically raised by the water. My parents were not very responsible with me when I was very young. I used to spend massive amounts of time under water; and I snuck into private lakes and ponds to swim by myself. I am just lucky in many ways.

It 's one thing having irrational fear like phobias. But come on. Fearing drowning when going for a deep dive through an underwater cave that takes 1 minute to get through is perfectly reasonable. It's just unecessary to expose oneself to that.

Sorry but what's the big deal here? My brothers and I did this stuff plus searching for silver coin at bottom of pool games etc all day long. Tying my arms and legs won't matter either. The whole point is whether you're comfortable in the water and underwater .....which is why the British call them frogmen.

At liest, you have tried, for me is a double win. You overslepted into in comfort zone 1 and 2 in you and you have beat down you're fears .Swimming as a sport is completley diffrent from what exercises you shared with us. Many do not know the difficulty of what you have done because they don' t even want to recognise. I do recognise because I love the water and from what you have shown. M,e as a water polo gamer I would not do those exercises without supervision . So congratulations are in to proper order!

Good on you brother. Not fun to fail due to our nature but much props to you for going out and attempting these things. I failed my PAST and never went back. I sit now and think, "what if?" and it pisses me off. I believe we all have done it. In the end, I hope to teach my boys that failure is not bad, just a lesson to learn from. Go back and complete what you tried to do until you pass. That is what ultimately makes our SF/SOF brethren so strong. They continue to do those things until they succeed. Cheers brother, you got a new subscriber.
