In recent decades, scientific research and technology applied to sport have made great strides, making tools and practices available to athletes who were barred from those who preceded them. The evolution of the performances themselves is bringing attention to those details that are increasingly important within a performance, often playing a decisive role. Topics that until a few years ago were neglected or in any case did not have a key role today represent the so-called “marginal gains”. Breathing and freediving techniques in the preparation of professional athletes is opening the horizons towards new training methods allowing the athletes themselves to overcome their limits. And it is precisely through this manual that the author leads to the knowledge of a targeted path through breathing in improving performance both in mental and metabolic terms: from the management of anxiety, insomnia, to concentration up to all the exercises aimed at reduction of oxygen consumption, management of breathlessness, recovery and optimization of training.
A unique manual of its kind, as interpreted in the iconographic section by athletes of the caliber of Filippo Magnini (swimming), Arianna Errigo (fencing) Matteo Aicardi (water polo) Cristina Chirichella (volleyball) Sara Cardin (Karate), Alessandro Fabian (triathlon) , Tiziano Pasquali (rugby).
