Title: The Effect of Compression Sleeves on Blood Lactate during an Arm Ergometer Max Test
Author: Arciniega, Sergio Daniel
Abstract: Among athletes, the use of compression sleeves has been widely used with the intentions of increased flexibility, improved blood circulation, and increased muscle oxygenation. Therefore, the performance enhancements provided by compression sleeves could affect the amount of lactic acid accumulated within the muscle. Lactic acid builds up in the muscles as a byproduct of anaerobic activity, which dissociates into lactate and H+ resulting in a decrease in pH and is thought to lead to muscle fatigue.
