On 8weeksout there is this thread
One of the posters was discussing recovery with Bill Sands (OTC guy) and apparently compression was one the better recovery items.
So I checked into compression recovery and Bill Sands. There is some interesting stuff out there. They make compression garmets that are specifically for recovery at $200 a pop so that put me off right there. Its an intresting idea and I could see how it would work, but like Steve said, sleep and eat works the best.
