    In this study lactate removal rates were monitored in ten subjects during a 30-min recovery period following exhaustive arm exercise. Each subject experienced three recovery regimens on different occasions in random order. One recovery period consisted of supine rest while the other two were active, one incorporating low intensity arm exercise and the other consisting of low intensity leg exercise. Lactate clearance rates showed a significant difference between the recovery regimens, and a posteriori test indicated a significant difference between leg exercise and arm exercise in the recovery period and also between leg exercise and rest. There was no significant difference in lactate clearance between arm exercise and rest in the recovery period.
