Greg Johnson said:Hey guys,
Just wondering if anyone's had any experience with compression garments? Would be interested to hear your feedback/views.
Tapeworm said:I too have found them good after a hard day riding, seems to reduce soreness in the legs overnight. Purely anecdotal.
smipypr said:The merits of compression clothing aside, the long-lived myth of lactic acid/lactate is being continued. Post ride, run, or workout soreness is not the result of lactate in the blood - that goes to the liver and is converted to glucose. Lactic acid itself may be present, especially after a a hard sprint, but soon leaves the bloodstream. Soreness is the result of micro-tears in your muscle tissue. That's how muscles get stronger - by repairing the damage from stress.
