I don't have trouble with breath control for the swimming part of my Breaststroke, it's off the turns, mainly on the last one. I have to do a quick underwater pull-out and I usually just get passed the flags because I don't have enough air to glide longer under the water. I can get passed the red line on the first, second, and third turns, though, because I have enough air. Is there a way to expand my lung capacity so that I can complete a longer pull out? Sorry if my original question wasn't clear enough...

We've had a couple questions about breath control... here's the other one, so maybe between the two there are some ideas.

He does answer about the double pullouts and triple.
