Do they save up and live on the cheap as they travel? How do they make the money work?" 6 jobs spearos love article link 44:00 Malcolm Galloway Listener Call 64:00 Jaap Verbaas with the three latest articles from FreediveWire.com The details of CO2 transport and CO2 tolerance for freedivers Highlights: CO2 tolerance is complicated, hence this post is complicated. Hopefully it is less complicated to read than it was to write. Just in case it gives you a headache, here are the highlights: CO2 is transported in three ways: bound to hemoglobin, as bicarbonate ion, and dissolved in the blood stream. Red blood cells are crucial for generating bicarbonate ion, and for facilitating CO2  bound to hemoglobin. Only dissolved CO2 can diffuse to the central chemoreceptors. Physical CO2 tolerance may be governed by blood volume and quality, which is commonly overlooked in CO2 tolerance training. Endurance athletes commonly have the highest CO2 tolerance and storage (in comparison to short and mid distance sprinters). Mental CO2 tolerance focuses on desensitization of the central chemoreceptors. What do lactate and lactic acid have to do with freediving? Highlights: We do not produce lactic acid. We produce lactate. We do also, however, produce H+ in muscle cells. Combine the two, and you have lactic acid. However, the reaction producing the excess H+ is separate from that which produces lactate. Lactate is produced continuously, even at rest. Even when excess O2 is available, we produce lactate. Lactate is not metabolic waste Lactate is used as fuel, both directly and indirectly. Once O2 becomes limited,  lactate starts accumulating and enters the bloodstream (we'll call it blood lactate) Lactate is actually slightly basic... not acidic. But, H+ starts accumulating in the bloodstream too, although at a different rate. Blood lactate can be converted to glucose in the liver, or taken up by the muscle cells once the workload decreases. Blood lactate increases rapidly when you hold your breath, even while doing a static. The dive reflex promotes anaerobic metabolism. The increase in lactate shows that the oxygen supply to the non-essentials is effectively cut off. Peak blood lactate is highest in mid-distance sprinters, indicating sprinting might be a good method to train for freediving. However, endurance training reduces the amount of lactate that accumulates in the blood without affecting the amount of lactate produced in muscle cells. Perhaps we need a bit of both types of training, and perhaps this is why most freedivers believe that high intensity interval training works wonders (it is somewhat in between mid distance and endurance training). Where does lactic acid come in? Well, hydrogen and lactate occur in equilibrium with lactic acid (H + lactate = lactic acid). In blood plasma the rate is about 1:20 for lactic acid to lactate. So lactic acid does play a role, but it is minor. Actually, it is minor when it comes to muscle functioning. Learn More What cardio can do for your freediving Many freedivers shy away from cardio because they believe that cardio does not benefit freediving. However: Endurance runners have the highest blood volume compared to short and mid-distance sprinters Endurance runners have the highest blood quality (Hb) compared to short and mid-distance sprinters Endurance runners have the highest CO2 storage capabilities compared to short and mid-distance sprinters Endurance training reduces the amount of lactate that accumulates in the blood without affecting the amount of lactate produced Endurance training drastically reduces recovery time Base cardio is very beneficial to recreational freedivers and spearfishers Base cardio is likely very beneficial to competitive freedivers VO2 max has never been shown to negatively effect freedivers of any kind, however there is some theoretical basis to say that it will negatively effect pool disciplines such as dynamic and dynamic-no-fins.

NSP:099 Tim Kavermann How Spearfishing Can Help You Overcome Anxiety
Interview with Tim Kavermann Have you ever been stuck, frozen for a few seconds (which felt like hours), paralyzed and unable to take action? This is one example of heightened anxiety that I can relate to and maybe it's you too. The good news is that Tim Kavermann joins me in this episode to share techniques and strategies to deal with anxiety. This interview is candid, eye-opening and my personal fav, highly actionable.

However, Tim believes that the situations he has encountered while spearfishing have been the key to learning and understanding anxiety triggers and then developing and employing strategies and techniques to overcome it. His idea is not to avoid discomfort but to embrace it and try to use the situations as opportunities to heal, grow and overcome anxiety. Here are a few of the key ideas and points; GET COMFORTABLE WITH THE UNCOMFORTABLE Accept anxiety, learn from it and if needed get help to take its power away Don't fight it, sit with it and learn to move forward anyway Learn breathing techniques to relax on the surface and reduce fear and anxiety Being in stressful situations can help you overcome long standing beliefs Relaxing in situations that most people (even those who don't have anxiety) would panic in Turn fear into curiosity - sharks/current/rough seas. Ground yourself in the moment by paying attention to the details. Fight or flight - there is no flight out at sea. Prepare to not be prepared Relax and enjoy - surface intervals-  find what works for you. Speak up about that things that deeply affect you - but it falls on you to make change Get help when you need it from a professional 70:50 Dive Watch Conversation 74:25 Spearo Q&A Could you describe what the spearfishing experience means to you in one sentence? It has given me deep confidence within myself and shown me what I am truly capable of mentally and physically. What is the single best piece of advice you have ever been given for spearfishing? Slow down and take your time, dive within your limits Who has been the most influential person or people in your spearfishing? My friends, these are guys who’ve been diving a very long time, and took the time to share their passion with me. If you could go back in time to when you were just starting spearfishing and give yourself some advice, what would you say? Stop overthinking it  - stop trying to control everything and every situation, roll with it. During your 1 years spearfishing what is the biggest lesson you've learned? To be comfortable in situations that are well outside my comfort zone What current challenges do you face in your spearfishing and how are you approaching them? The biggest one is still the anxious tendancy to overthink, overplan, get panicked. Rather than let it take hold of the day I now learned tools to deal with it. - Breathing techniques Mindfulness Take a break and reset Move spots Meds for seasickness Don’t spend a week planning SLOW DOWN Who is the best person to go spearfishing with and why? My good mates! I feel calmer with them, I know they have my back, the take the time to teach me new things, then know the good places to get in the water ;) most of all we all share the same passion and a common goal - could possible touch here on the business we are setting up. What would be your fish of a lifetime? 6 monts ago I jsut wanted a huge snapper of kingi, I had set my comfort zone at what I was doing here in NZ - After cuvier and being in the big open sea in a more exposed environtment I really want to go further a field - ultimate fish for me would be a big doggy, they just look like they would put up one hell of a fight (i say this now but in the moment I would be peaking out!) haha id also really like a mahi mahi I think they look awesome and I ate one in raro once, it was amazing. What is the spearfishing destination that you would most like to go to? Next I would like to go to Raro I think this would be a good step into some difference species and diving. Id also really like to go to Bali to do the deep week free diving course. Id also like to go to the Three Kings.

NSP:098 Justin Lee | the Mindset of a Lifelong Spearfishing Learner
Justin Lee Spearfishing Interview Fierce, uber-friendly and a true life-long learner is how I'd describe Justin after chatting with him. Justin is absolutely sold out on the lifestyle hunting and spearfishing provides. Big themes in this interview include; learning something from every person you encounter (taking arrows), maintaining an openness to whatever you are engaged in and learning continuously, and just being a person who is fun to hang out with. One of the standout stories for me, was Justin being hoisted out of the water in 80 fathoms of water from right in the middle of a Tiger Shark highway....at nighttime. This interview packs some dynamite tips and mindsets. Listen in! Mentioned in this episode North Florida Shootout.

NSP:095 Jaap Verbaas | Myoglobin, Hypoxic Squats and Going Longer and Deeper
Interview with Dr. Jaap Verbaas Today's episode is an interview with the Author of Longer and Deeper, a cross training guide for freediving and spearfishing. Dr. Jaap Verbaas is a crash test dummy of the highest calibre. I geek out way too much and we talk about hypoxic squats, essential tools and mindset for improving your freediving performance and even diets that can help. Standout highlights (for me) are Jaap's experimental mindset and his demonstration of how to plan, measure, experiment and learn from each experiment.  If you are engaged in any from of freediving training then you will find plenty of value in this interview and the Longer and Deeper book. Listen & subscribe to the Noob Spearo Podcast on Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Castbox | Google Podcasts | Stitcher | Podbean Interview Time Stamps Background 6:00 Where are you based, what do you do and how did you get started freediving? 7:00 Freedivewire.com - what is it and what compelled you to become a freediving writer? 9:25 What reediving/spearfishing hurdles did you personally face and how did you overcome them? Jaap talks about equalizing issues at depth. 15:40 Canadian Spearfishing. Where do you spearfish? Chasing flounder in cold water with a Polespear 18:40 What's your go-to fish dish 19:30 Longer and Deeper: Overview of the book and key concepts I read the book and really enjoyed it - all of it. I think a huge part of why its such a good book is your Experimental Mindset:  Where did you acquire this habit? Are you a Tim Ferris fan? (I noticed the slow carb diet and lots of your methodology is similar) How did you adopt this theorize, plan, measure, adapt methodology? Is this a skill or orientation that all of us should adopt? Muscle mass: when does it become counter-productive for freediving Hacks for improving freediving performance Blood quality and cardio: exploring the relationship Myoglobin: the oxygen holding cells in your muscles. Theories about training to increase it Hypoxic Squats: desaturating the oxygen in your muscles.

Can you see it on an oxygen saturation graph when your body is steadily depleting? 40:10 Perfect Dive/Shit Dive comparison - great concept (this is awesome for looking at the separate metabolic phases of a dive that you can specifically target when training) Can you walk me through a good spearfishing dive right now? I’m hunting reef fish in 18m/60ft and to get the fish curious enough I need to hold some bottom time. (I’d love to get into the dive phase concept - are there 4 phases in a spearfishing dive?) Ok now the converse...what does a shit dive look like? The physiological demands on the diver at each stage and how symptoms can point to what you may need to target in your own training regimen “The goal of training is to adapt the body to specific conditions. In freediving, the goal is to adapt the body to underwater conditions. These conditions include; Increased pressure Reduced Oxygen Increased Carbon Dioxide Specific training is possible for all 3 of these conditions” Dr. Jaap Verbaas 47:00 Can we talk about training for each of these conditions specifically for spearfishing? CO2 Tables training can be great for spearos suffering early onset contractions Mid-Distance Sprints for reducing lactate and leg soreness on the surface Blood - improving quality. Cardio training boosts blood volume and is proven to improve the quality. Swimming training is good for CO2 tolernance as well as cardiovascular training *further detailed breakdowns and training plans are specifically laid out in Part 3 of the Longer and Deeper book 54:00 EXERCISES Stretching (what about for 37 year old weapons?) Animal Walks? The crab walk - I can't do it. Hypoxic Squats. How and why (this seems to be the biggest needle mover - why?)

NSP:093 Tom Blandford GWS stories and respecting your prey
Interview with Tom Blandford Great White Shark tales, White Sea Bass chasing and an epic Guadalupe day surrounded by huge fish. Sound like a fun listen? These are just a few of the highlights of this interview with veteran spearo Tom Blandford. As mentioned in the intro, I purchased (and read) Tom's first book 'A Dented Badge' which has stories about his life serving in the LAPD during the 70's and 80's. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I think its a nice compliment to this interview which focuses on his spearfishing life. Listen in:) Full shownotes and pictures available at http://www.noobspearo.com/noob-spearo-podcast/tom-blandford/ A bit about Tom Blandford "He's been diving forever -- he decided to go to a local junior college back in the 60s because that would allow him to dive more than some of his other options. He was a founding member of the LAPD dive unit. He's been a member of the Long Beach Neptunes since the early 80s (if not earlier). He made a bunch of trips to Baja in the 80s and 90s -- actually spent several months once living out of a tent and a van on one of those trips, diving every day. More recently, he's taken to cruising in the Sea of Cortez and has dived/spearfished in tons of different spots. Aside from all that, he's mentioned in Terry Maas's book in the story about the white shark incident in 1984 at Guadalupe Island -- that's the one where Harry Ingram was launched out of the water by a white shark. As luck would have it, my dad had a front row seat and helped get Harry out of the water. He also has his own white shark story from 1988 where he actually shot a white shark at point blank range! He's an old salt now (74 in November), but he still dives quite a bit." - Ron Blandford Interview Time Stamps 4:00 Tom's beginnings. Shooting rocks and loving the spearfishing experieeince. 7:40 White Sea Bass hunting story 8:50 Early mentors Jack Prodonovich and Tom Murray 11:00 Long Beach Neptunes spearfishing club 14:00 One of Tom's best days spearfishing in the Sea of Cortez. Surrounded by Yellow Fin Tuna, a huge Wahoo, massive Amberjack, Grouper and just one of those special days on the water. 21:00 Tom's favorite two species to hunt is Yellowtail Kingfish and White Sea Bass. Tips for finding locations where Yellowtail are schooling and the technique he uses to shoot them when he's in the right place. Bait species that Yellowtail chase including Mullet and Mackerel. 27:50 Guadalupe Island and a very memorable Great White Shark incident. Big conversation about sharks. 48:00 Tom's history serving in the LAPD dive unit. 54:00 The funniest moment he has had out on the water. Watching a Yellowtail try and keep up with a school of Bluefin Tuna 56:50 The contents of his divebag 62:00 Spearo Q&A The single biggest lesson he has learned in his spearfishing is to respect the prey The best piece of advice he has been given is to stop hyperventilating Current challenges he faces His favorite people to go spearfishing with are people with good judgement "To hunt, respect the prey and enjoy eating it" is his main spearfishing motivation To reach out to Tom email him at mvgracias45@gmail.com Noob Spearo Partners + some spearfishing discounts Adreno Spearfishing – Buy your spearfishing equipment here.

NSP:092 Captain Dan Walsh Halibut insights and vintage gear
Interview with Captain Dan Walsh Full shownotes here http://www.noobspearo.com/noob-spearo-podcast/captain-dan-walsh/ Interview with Dan Walsh Vintage spearfishing equipment, advice and stories about spearfishing pioneers, and insights into hunting Halibut aka barn door. Dan Walsh has spent 50+ years on the water spearfishing, scuba diving, captaining boats, chasing abalone and making TV shows about the ocean, Dan has no shortage of awesome stories. To compliment the chat I have included a tonne of info about him below. Enjoy this episode of the Noob Spearo Podcast:) About Dan Walsh Dan was captain of the “Sand Dollar” dive boat along with Bill Johnston when Terry Maas shot his big Bluefin at Guadalupe Island off Baja. Although it weighed in officially at 399.4 lb it was well over 400lb when he shot it, was on deck several days and got some weight loss due to dehydration. He also loves diving for Abalone and Lobster (his biggest was over 13lb!). In 1972 Dan became a Scuba Diving Instructor and 76 was the beginning of his boat Captaincy. Along the way he worked many well known dive shops including Scuba Sciences, San Diego Divers Supply, Aloha Dive Shop/Honolulu, Skin diving Hawaii, Kamehameha Divers/Kona. He also worked for AquaCraft/Bandito, Underwater Kinetics, Blue Water Wetsuits, Aleeda Wetsuits along with Captaining or crewing the Spirit of Adventure, Bottom Scratcher, Kona Princess, and Caribbean Explorer.  You may have seen some of his film well known film and television work such as ESPN Diving with Christopher Reeve, PBS Nature/Antartica, and Shark Week. He is still involved producing shows for CBS, NBC sports, and others. Dan's Old guys mask clearing technique: "Most of the Bottom Scratchers used tobacco and smeared a cigarette inside and rinsed it out to keep the mask from fogging.  I’ve never smoked and didn’t think that method was for me. I just used spit." Spearfishing Tips: Get comfortable in the water Learn to breathe—buy Breathology, The Flow book for mental calmness, yoga breathing etc Don’t rush things, take it easy as you learn and get more experienc. Get comfortable with your equipment + Get a really good mask!  A Low volume mask that fits well. Best advice ever from Jack Prodonovich:  you’re supposed to be having fun, you don’t need to try to prove anything.  Just have fun. Travel tip: Have some sort of dive/travel/accident insurance.  I have DAN Insurance which covers pretty much anything that I would need medically or emergency transit from an area.
