Inactive recovery from dynamic exercise is associated with cessation of the primary exercise stimulus from the brain and abrupt changes in the stimuli to baro- and metaboreceptors (Rowel, 1993).
Metaboreceptors with sympathetic afferents might be activated by accumulated waste products during exercise (O'Leary, 1993) possibly suggesting an alternative mechanism for sympathetic predominance and elevated HR levels in all four recovery protocols.
Metaboreceptors with sympathetic afferents might also be activated by accumulated waste product during exercise (OLeary, 1993) proposing an alternative mechanism for sympathetic predominance.
