While recovery VO2 and plasma volume were each similar among all conditions, recovery [La–]P was lower when the GCSs were worn throughout exercise and recovery than when removed after exercise or not used at all. With no evidence of altered lactate oxidation, the authors concluded it was most likely that lactate was being retained in muscle rather than being cleared more quickly.
