How long do you think you can hold your breath?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on May 9, 2006
“Not very long. I’ve never tried it before, but I could do it for a minute or two.”
“I don’t know. I wouldn’t want to try it underwater though, because it would make me panic.”
“Probably close to a minute and a half. It’s been a long time since I’ve worked out and built up my lung capacity. You have to practice.”
“Probably not more than a minute. I used to be able to for longer when I was young, but not now.”
