ABSTRACT: Due to the performance decrements associated with DOMS, a treatment to alleviate its symptoms is of great interest. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of low vs. moderate-intensity aerobic recovery on DOMS and strength. Twenty-six women (22.11 ± 2.49 yrs; 60.33 ± 8.37 kg; 163.83 ± 7.29 cm) were split into three different groups and performed a DOMS-inducing protocol of sixty eccentric actions of the knee extensors followed by one of three twenty-minute recovery interventions: moderate-intensity cycling (MIC; n=10), low-intensity cycling (LIC; n=10), or seated rest (CON; n=6) after the eccentric protocol. Pain scale (PS), isometric strength (ISO), and dynamic strength (PT) were recorded before (PRE), immediately post (IP), 24- (24h), 48- (48h), 72- (72h), and 96- (96h) hours after exercise. For PT, PRE, 48h, 72h, and 96h were significantly (p<0.05) greater than IP, but not different than 24h. For PS, IP (4.83 ± 0.36) was greater than all other time periods while 24h (2.91 ± 0.42), 48h (2.62 ± 0.53), and 72h (1.97 ± 0.49) were all greater than PRE (0.44 ± 0.19). Also, 24h and 48h were not different, but were both greater than 72h and 96h (1.13 ± 0.32) while 72h was greater than 96h. For ISO, neither CON nor LIC showed any significant difference across time. MIC showed no difference between PRE (189.88 ± 40.68), IP (193.75 ± 47.24), 24h (186.52 ± 53.55), or 48h (195.36 ± 55.06), but 72h (210.05 ± 53.57) and 96h (207.78 ± 59.99) were significantly greater than 24h. 72h was also greater than IP. Therefore, moderate-intensity aerobic recovery may be suggested following eccentric muscle actions.
