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. Measuring the change Hypoxic Squats: How to do them and the device you need to measure your oxygen saturation (oximeter - check this one out) Spleenic contraction? 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?) Blood quality - Cardio - freedivers (top level can be anti) Yoga and breathing 62:20 DIET: Myth Busting (are you rehearsing for the show)? Alkaline Diet? Carbs - are they bad? Dairy/Mucus relationship? Ketosis? (Pete Attia in the Tools of Titans book discussed) Slow carb? To learn more about this diet you can also check out the Four Hour Body by Tim Ferris here 74:00 TOOLS Notebook and a pencil and start tracking your training Oximeter - Check out this one on Amazon Moxi - learn more here 78:50 RANDOMS What kind of stuff do freedivers and spearos do that annoys you? Did you have any unexpected findings or conclusions, for apnea training? What are you curious about and working on right now?

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.

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.

Rob Harrison was one of the core members responsible for driving extreme growth in the Auckland Freediving Club membership. Since then he has started a spearfishing training group called Spearfishing FUNdamentals. In this interview he discusses some of the core things clubs need to do to lay a foundation for growth such as having a powerful vision, establishing a cultural/social code, encouraging action oriented discussion and more. As usual there are tips to improve your hunting and freediving techniques along with a few laughs. Enjoy:) Listen & subscribe to the Noob Spearo Podcast A NSP listener (Vaughan Podbielski) reached out to me with this recommendation. "I take part in a spearfishing dedicated training group (pool fitness / Co2 etc and lake depth training), group called Spearfishing FUNdamentals. It's run by a good bugger named Rob Harrison. Rob is also an AIDA Master Instructor. I've just done my AIDA2 with him. Rob also used to be president of the Auckland Freediving Club but now focuses on spearfishing freediving. (also underwater hockey player for NZ)." Here is what Rob had to say about the club. "... we now have a good crew and take turns at writing up the plan and programs. We have done 12 week focused training plans and have had members progress from 10m to 30m divers as a result. The idea for group came about in my last year at the Auckland Freediving Club."
