What To Look For When Buying Workout Pants

April 24, 2017

workout pants

Both pants are printed, but only 1 is good for weight lifting.

Wearing the right workout clothing can make or break your workout.  Cycling, yoga, running, weight lifting, each of these activities has a different need to consider.  Cycling pants are most comfortable when the material has vents and moisture wicking properties and the fit is tight so as not to get caught on pedals.  Yoga pants require stretch and to fit close to the body along with a waistband that will stay in place when performing poses.  Running pants should have a snug fit, moisture wicking properties, and reflective marks to be seen when on the road.

Then there’s my personal favorite type of pants to shop for—weight lifting.  And as with other activities, pants for weight lifting have special needs to consider.  If you go to the gym sooner or later you’ll see what I’m talking about.  A girl is wearing a pair of pants that look great when she walks around but when she does squats, lunges, or any other bending and lifting move all you see is her thong—eek!

Why would I buy so much black when there are so many other pretty colors to pick from?
