Drown Proofing class

I want you to breathe me
Let me be your air
Let me roam your body freely
No inhibition, no fear

If you are lean this drill is easy (or should be).  You just sink to the bottom and bounce off enough so you can breathe (head out of the water) and repeat.  Sounds easy but if you are positively buoyant you have to add in a few skills like exhaling as you descend.  Another trick is to really propel yourself off the bottom as if you were trying to slam a basketball - so jump hard.  This will build up momentum and make it easier to come back down.  Try to get your chest out of the water every time and gravity will do the rest for you.  You have to stay straight - one little bend of your legs / back and it will mess up the momentum going down.
