The flipside of all this talk is I think the next level of local eliminates would be to do problems without breathing. Especially longer things like powerband, stuff like that. Could be a whole new set of challenges out there. In the same way that in Kabaddi they have to constantly say "kabaddi" to prove you're not breathing in, we should do something similar for kabaddi bouldering. Maybe just chanting "waddage" during climbing.
Shark's next big goal: eatswood Traverse Without Oxygen.
Typical yoga vid! - 2mins10seconds out of 2mins16seconds contains useful practical information that anybody can follow on how to develop breathing techniques. The last 6 seconds has philosophical jargon about evening out your consciousness that will mean nothing to most people.

we were also taught how a deep breathing out exercise to empty our lungs. Which came in very handy when I got breathalysed.
I went to a workshop with Kino last year, it was quite hard work, nearly took my breath away...
Power braying. It's the secret in climbing no one dare mention...I will pay £100 to a nominated charity - if someone posts a video of Shark making loud donkey noises all the way up one of his Oak redpoints.
... Johnny used a circular breathing technique
Saying 'just' suggests its easy. Which it isn't. i just have to breathe faster. Which is
Put down that BMC sponsored doughnut you're about to eat and DO SOME WEIGHTSED HANGS
There's actually one glaringly obvious thing which Shark hasn't done yet which will lead to success on the Oak. He should arrive at Malham and warm up by holding a large edge at about waist height and bending his knees. He should then attempt the Oak and fall off either throwing to the horn or doing that top traverse.He should then lower off and go for a walk to the top of the cove. This is the crucial bit. He mustn't be carried, he must walk and he must walk right to the top. Once there he can sleep if he chooses.On returning back to the catwalk he should return to the waist level edge and hold it while bending his knees for 5 minutes.He will then climb the Oak.
