    Right now, my best while standing still is 1:30, 1:15 average. I have yet to time myself when it comes to actually being underwater. Mostly, I hold my breath while looking at the clock in Science class XD.

    If you're looking to get better, take a freediving class and train under an instructor who can guide you along, help you stretch and prep properly and solve problems with your technique. As Derek says, everyone's capable of 3 minutes or longer; just stay safe and never practise in water alone.

    I was a pretty decent freediver and hold an AIDA 3 cert, but I'll spare you my PB as that part of my life is over for now.
