So this video came up nice, but caught me completely off guard. We were recording the RV videos, and after we’ve finished – I’ve been told that Aolin sent us a video talking about me. So what you see here is an unstaged, genuine reaction while viewing it for the first time. Hope you’ll enjoy it. Aolin Wang is still (up to date) the deepest man in China. We’ve been working closely for the last four and a half years. And this video is his story about the equalisation journey to -113 meters depth.

Here is the promised video about, the more advanced, second stage of RV training in freediving.



I hope you’ll enjoy the video, and stay tuned for RV training stage 2



This video is the first to come after a long silence period. I have recorded it after a week of none diving, and only doing dry training and conditioning at home, and trying to answer your questions. It ended up being a rant, and not practically about Coronavirus, but I hope you’ll enjoy and understand. I definitely will attempt to record a video about training in these days of lockdown.

Writing has always been a challenge for me and inevitably gets postpone until it becomes irrelevant. However, two weeks ago Harry Chamas did me the great honour of coming up from Dahab to meet me. I was already predisposed to like Harry, from his writings, and from what Alina told me about him from her visit in Dahab last March. And from what I knew of his history as a Royal Marine, and also from his youtube channel.

We discussed RV versus FRC training at length and found our positions were not all that far apart. The worst of it is there is a dearth of scientific information to support any proposition. It must be, today, an exchange of observations and supported at best by a very few relevant scientific articles. Our discussion began by defining the separate objectives of RV and FRC training – and they are not identical. We talked about how a lot of this training is misunderstood and Continued…



Just a short update.

This is the book I am reading right now. It was recommended to me by a student, whom I appreciate very much.

Natural born heroes by Christopher McDougall. Mastering the Lost Secrets of Strength and Endurance.

Here is a direct link to the book on Amazon. You’ll thank me later!



Okay, this is an update from freedivers. This, for me, is an absolutely golden
period in Eilat. My son, Zev Solomons, who is 19 years of age has come back to Eilat, with
the idea of living here. And Zev is a very accomplished swimmer and freediver.
And he’s brought with him his new fiancée. A very beautiful, blond Romanian




A perfect Wednesday, with a flat sea.

Was trying out my new freediving fins from Alchemy.

A recent article published by Dan Europe and still viewable on their FB page, I consider to be one of the most valuable pieces of research into an aspect of deep freedive physiology that I have come across in a long time.
It concerned genetic markers for a susceptibility to lung squeeze.
It brought to mind the vital importance  of knowing how to train for depth and the necessity of understanding of the role of NO in deep diving so here are some thoughts on the subject –
