Grace Under Pressure: Dealing with Panic Underwater

Grace Under Pressure: Dealing with Panic Underwater | Scuba Diving Fitness | Scoop.it
Panic may be the No. 1 cause of scuba fatalities, and experienced divers are not immune. Here's how to keep your cool when things turn rough under water.

Via Kathy Dowsett
Sue Bream's insight:

If you are active in other sports besides scuba diving, such as skiing, hiking, kayaking, etc., you will likely be exposed to more situations where you need to calm yourself down and take some deep breaths.  I can remember back country skiing on a steep slope and crossing that slope elicited anxiety in me.  I had no choice but to breathe deeply and continue on.

Exercise Back Pain Away

Exercise Back Pain Away | Scuba Diving Fitness | Scoop.it

"I am not the first person to try and exercise back pain away. According to past research and studies, nearly 80% of all Americans will experience some type of back pain in their lives. The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons believes this as well, as they say 80% of us out there will encounter some type of problem with our back before we die.

 

Traditionally, the treatment for lower back pain is increasing core strength to increase flexibility on muscles that are tight, which will provide better stabilization of the spine and exercises to correct the imbalances of the muscles. The muscles that surround the spine will provide stability and support of the spinal column." http://bit.ly/18xlHOX
