Catch RedBulls story and Workout of the Week: Mick Fanning on breathing. Something all of us can likely use to our greater benefit.

Oxygen is the key to life. We know that right? But how much do we know about the mechanics of breathing and of our mostly unawakened capabilities?

If you're like most, a five-second wipeout has you close to panic and desperately swallowing air when you do surface. Imagine if you could take a two-wave, one-minute hit on the head without punching the panic button...
