    I am a musician so I think that's why I can hold my breath pretty long. Was taught the correct way to breath early on. Very much helps in sports too. I used to be able to go 3 mins. Sitting here I just did 1:50. Twice I have had a lifeguard grab me sitting in bottom of pool thinking I was in trouble. Nothing I was trying to do on my part. Just showing off for my kids.

    Does your question mean breathing in deep and not exhaling or can you inhale and then slowly let it out without breathing in again?

    without breathing out - 1:24
    with breathing out - 1:59

    Almost 3 minutes. I snorkel a lot, and to see some awesome underwater scenery, it is good to dive down and wait.
