How to Reverse Pack
Pre-Dive Preparation • 5m 18s
ABOUT REVERSE PACKING: Reverse packing, as the name suggests, is the opposite of packing - and is essential for safe, deep diving.
Many people, particularly early on in their training, focus on packing in order to expand their lung volume. However, for anyone wanting to dive deep, reverse packing is the one you want - and need - to focus on.
Reverse packing is the method through which we stretch our residual capacity, i.e. we are able to exhale further and deeper, decreasing the volume of our lungs. This is essential for safe, deep diving.
This simple video walks and talks you through what - and what not - to do! Enjoy!
