With some training and practice many folks can do 60 to 100 ft.+ dives in a fairly short period of time. I used to think it took quite a bit more time to improve depth and duration. A recent course with Martin Stepanek has me rethinking this. This first day in the pool he had several of us holding our breaths for 3 minutes + just by altering our technique. I am planning a couple of articles on Martin and his program, it is pretty incredible.
That'd be interesting. I love to freedive, mostly rivers and such, so depth isn't anything big, but being down for more than 30 seconds would be great.
