Physiology of Freediving

For many people, one of the major attractions of Freediving is its technical aspects. The human body is adapted for breath-hold diving in so many miraculous ways that, once you start looking, it's not hard to believe that this is something we're absolutely meant to do. Freediving physiology is a fascinating subject, and a growing area of interest amongst the scientific community.
