Abstract

BACKGROUND: Recovery from exercise is important in sports and rehabilitation for preventing exercise-induced injuries and recovery of performance. This study aimed to compare active recovery (AR), neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES), and foam rolling (FR) in terms of blood lactate (Bla) removal, reduction in delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS), and restoration of muscle strength, endurance, and flexibility in healthy young individuals.
