Are you in love with diving and want to try once or even get your own scuba dive certificate someday? If you do, then you hopefully you can realized that dream sooner. And I want to reminds you that ever since everything have their own prices, diving is also need you to prepare yourself even right before getting your own dive course.
Diving is challenging. Sure it is. But you must have been known too that you should deal with how you can control the anxiety as it is the case for most of the beginners scuba divers when training. Not to mention that you should also ensure that your body is fits all the time.
And as I am actually supporting your dream to be a diver or even a dive master one day, I am going to show you some exercises you can do before you start your own dive course.
- Jogging/Running and Swimming. You may won’t expected that I am going to say that, will you? Jogging and running has been proven to help us for breathing while the swimming itself is the main thing you must do while diving. Do these exercises regularly so later you can use the oxygen underwater properly and to help you focus on doing things in the water.
- Train your legs! Another one simple things you can do before starting your dive course is that to give exercises for your legs. Swimming may seem to be simple but when you are diving under, your foot will be working more than before. Not to mention that the dive spots are also get a challenging stream that you should take care of yourself. So that, you may want to make your legs to be not getting tired too fast. You can even do this while watching tv or something. The important of doing this exercise is because you will use the fins and it will be heavy and quiet challenging for the beginners.
- Start with a snorkeling! First swimming and then snorkeling? You are not thinking that I am giving you an amateur tips, are you? To me, there are 2 stages right before you are diving you have to passed away. Both are swimming and the last two is the snorkeling. It is so making any sense since diving is combining those 2 things. So, snorkeling will encourages you to getting used to the tools you will have to use in diving as well as to measure how good you are in it.
Diving is a great thing, but so does your safety. So that, do all steps one by one. Therefore, you need to slow a bit down no matter how excited you are about scuba diving because you are just a beginner. So, know your place. Start with a simple exercise and try to make a schedule for all so you can be discipline in training yourself right before the course and the dive.
