As a Molchanovs Lap / Wave 3 Master Freediver you are already halfway on your journey to becoming an aquatic mammal. You will be able to comfortably dive up to 40 meters deep, demonstrate proper technique in all pool and depth disciplines and you will develop an understanding of advanced physiological and mental implications. In this course, you will also reflect on ancient freediving practices and how these transformed into modern freediving.

You will expand your mental toolbox by learning how to use attention deconcentration, which is a completely different mental approach to your dives. Your deep diving will benefit from advanced equalization approaches that combine the Frenzel maneuver either with the mouth-fill or reverse packing. There will be plenty of exercises available for you to master both of them over time. You will also learn how to simulate depth with Functional Residual Capacity (FRC) dives and how to prevent depth-related injuries. Packing, reverse packing, flexibility training and the according knowledge when and how to apply these techniques (and when not to!) will enable you to expand your limits while staying always safe.

The Lap / Wave 3 is a semi-professional certificate that enables you to act as an assistant instructor and equips you with the according level of knowledge and skills. It is also the last step towards joining a Molchanovs Instructor Course if your goal is to make a career out of freediving.
