Heavy Legs

When I'm coming up from a dive my quads and hamstrings will sometimes burn and feel heavy. It's not only from deep/long dives and it isn't every dive though. From what I've read this is probably a build up of lactic acid. Is there a good way to train this out or reduce it? I do some pool training when I can get a buddy, but I'm mostly on my own in the gym.

Re: Heavy Legs

I know exactly what you're talking about. It's a combo of acid build up, co2 and low o2. What I do to train for this is a lot of dynamic apnea on land. I'm real big on climbing stairs while breath holding. Apnea walks holding something heavy helps to. Or you can just simply walk while holding your breath. I work in a hospital so anytime I go up or down the stairs I'm holding my breath. Doing this let my legs and body adapt and I have way better breath holds now. I went from 1:45 dry static 2 weeks ago and now I'm around 3:30. Anyway this is what has worked for me. As always be safe and have a buddy.
