Inspiratory Resistive Loading After All-Out Exercise Improves Subsequent Performance

Previous studies have shown that post-exercise inspiratory resistive loading reduces blood lactate. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that inspiratory resistive loading during recovery could improve subsequent exercise performance.

Conclusion:

"Inspiratory resistive loading during recovery from all-out maximal-intensity exercise decreases blood lactate and perception of leg effort with beneficial effects on peak and mean power on subsequent supra-maximal exercise in healthy males. Our results provide rationale for using post-exercise inspiratory resistive loading as an ergogenic aid and future studies should be conducted to better evaluate the mechanisms responsible for this effect."
