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.
"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."
