61 seconds here after 3 attempts.

Seems pitiful!

That's very impressive. I do a medical test every day and find 10-12 seconds defeat most patients.

29 seconds, I thought it would be more

72 seconds. One attempt.

Funnily enough, DP and I tested ourselves this evening! He did 45 seconds, I managed 75.

1 minute 18 seconds. I have very low blood pressure if that makes a difference. I also used to practice when I was a kid. There wasn't much to do up North in the 80's.

Just googled and the longest someone has held their breath underwater is 20 mins 22 seconds!!! shock

49 seconds on first attempt... I too thought it would be more!

27 seconds. -_-

When I was at school I'm sure singing in the choir helped my breath holding. Don't know about time but I could do 2 1/2 lengths of a normal pool underwater.

61 seconds too, I was quite impressed with that, not keen to try again though!

20 mins 22 seconds!!!

I was about to apply for Record Breakers <retro> but maybe not!

63 seconds. Not too shabby.

Ask me 3 years ago when I was still smoking everyday and I would think it would have been different grin

When I played the flute a lot, almost a couple of minutes.

Not these days, though.
