Sporting compression garments (CG) are used widely during exercise despite little evidence of benefits. The purpose of this study was to investigate coverage and pressure effects of full-body CG on cardiovascular and thermoregulatory function at rest and during prolonged exercise, and on exercise performance. Twelve recreationally trained male cyclists [mean (SD) age, 26 (7) years; $$ \dot{V}{\text{O}}_{2\max } $$ , 53 (8) mL kg−1 min−1] completed three sessions (counterbalanced order), wearing… CONTINUE READING
