Erwan Le Corre is a pioneer in natural movement and the founder of MovNat. He is also a US National Record Holder. Recently, Le Corre, a Breaking Muscle favorite contributor, held his breath for 6 minutes and 46 seconds, beating the previous record for Static Apnoea (STA).


STA is a discipline of freediving and is defined as a pure breath-hold discipline. For the record, Le Corre was face down in a pool in Tampa, Florida, with an official moderating crew to record his record attempt.



Le Corre told his followers on Instagram about the record, thanking everyone who supported him, but also admitting that he was not fully prepared or convinced that he would succeed.


Le Corre has only been training STA for eighteen months and achieved his success a month away from his 50th birthday. He credits his success to the support of his family but also to his three decades of natural movement practice.


The record was verified US Freediving Federation under the rule of the Confederation of Underwater Activities (CMAS).
