Re: compression gear

Research results show that compression gear does vastly reduces the build-up of lactic acid immediately after periods of sustained exercise. This allows for a more rapid return to normal levels and minimizes the occurrence of delayed onset muscle soreness.

I'm no expert though. I used the contrast bath method where I use hot, then cold water....Alot cheaper than some of the compression gear on the market. But, it's just my preference. I have used Under Armour compression leg sleeves.....

Here are some links to some good ones that I looked into.
