    Is that 15m underwater with your twin set on? Or in your shorts?

    Good plan. That's what eventually worked for me. I also struggled with the 15m breath hold swim on Fundies. I also had to do a 25m+fins one not that long ago, which was a battle. The secret is to avoid being massively positively buoyant, relax and trying to move as smoothly as you can through the water, as others have already said. Sounds easy but it isn't - I'm the shittest freediver on earth: despite being able to hold my breath for well over a minute on land, I cannot get beyond ~8m vertical depth and a length underwater is almost impossible for me. But keep at it, as it does get easier with proper practice!

    Just practice the underwater swim by getting in the pool and trying to do it really, really slowly with gentle movements and lots of 'glide' between each stroke. Don't be the slightest bit worried if you do 5m on the first go. Chill out and go slowly again. Over time it will just naturally increase. In reality, you can hold your breath for a while and you are using very little energy with smooth strokes & gliding. Mostly in the head.
