Man Holds His Breath For A Record 22 Minutes


The next time you’re watching a TV
show, think about this: One man recently held his breath for nearly the entire
duration of that half-hour program.
Stig Severinsen, a world champion
freediver and breathing expert, captured the Guinness World Record with this
amazing feat.
Granted, Severinsen did have some
assistance — before going underwater, he inhaled pure oxygen so as to saturate
his body with oxygen. That said, this is still incredibly impressive.
For the past decade Severinsen has
experimented with different methods of breath-hold to examine their effects on
the mind and body. He even wrote a book titled Breatheology: The Art of
Conscious Breathing
This man has spent his entire life in
and around water, so if you’re waiting for someone to top his record, don’t
hold your breath.
