My Favorite Clothes For Every Workout

I love to mix up my workouts every week. I feel like my body responds more when I change the style of workout I’m doing constantly. I do Barre, BodyPump, Cycle, Yoga, and weightlifting on a regular basis and I love to wear different styles of workout clothes based off of the type of workout I’m doing.

YOGA:

Yoga is definitely the workout I do the most. I’m a total yoga nut, inversion junkie, whatever you want to call it I LOVE YOGA!! And I have tons of different clothes to wear to yoga. I also wear different outfits based off the type of yoga I’m doing (hot, yinyasa, triptych, vinyasa, or I’m just stretching it out) but this is my usual go-to for most of them.

I usually stick to softer leggings that I can still sweat in, but I also love high waisted leggings because when you’re moving and bending so much, your pants tend to fall down… a lot and the person behind you does not love your VS thong as much as you do… I also pick a sports bra that’s not super tight because sometimes I think those can get uncomfortable while I workout and I want to feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible during my yoga practice. For tops, I tend to pick something tighter so it doesn’t fall in my face when I’m in down dog or anything, but sometimes I go loosey goosey just so I can feel relaxed and free, but sometimes this bites me in the butt and I suffocate a little bit every time I’m upside down. For shoes, I go barefoot, but I wear a comfy pair of flip flops to go to class so they’re easy to take off. I wear flip flops in the winter time too because I’m super lazy 😀

Running:

Running is something I’m trying to do more often. I’m not a huge fan of it but, I love the way it makes me feel (its a love hate relationship). I feel so accomplished when I run further and further, but I always feel like I’m going to have a heart attack at the end. But when I do run, this is what I love to wear…

Since it’s summer, we’ll stick to what I wear now when I run in the heat. I usually wear athletic shorts and a tank top, this is partially because I worship the sun and love to work on my tan at every chance possible, but it’s also so the shirt doesn’t hold the heat in. If my shorts don’t have the lining in the already, I wear spandex under them so if they ride up I don’t get chub rub between my thighs. When I run, I wear a really supportive sports bra. I don’t have huge boobs, but my best friend Hannah does and I know her struggle is real, but I tend to wear my tighter Victoria’s Secret sports bra to keep the girls in place.

Side Note: I think VS sports bras are amazing. When they go on sale they are extremely affordable! They’re comfy and supportive and they come in all kinds of styles so I definitely think you should check them out!

For shoes, I try to wear shoes with lots of support, but honestly I don’t have a great pair of running shoes so I usually wear my Nike Free Runs.

Cycle:

Cycle is one of my new found workouts that I love!!! I love to sweat my butt off when I workout and cycle always leaves me drenched! I started with online cycle classes that I did in the gym of my apartment and then moved to gentle cycle; now I can do a whole hour long cycle class and I’m addicted!

When I head to cycle class, I stick with some really tight leggings. I like the compression on my legs while I cycle plus, shorts tend to ride up when I cycle and then the seat rubs my inner thighs. For my shirt, I love to wear baggy shirts so I can easily pull them up to wipe the sweat off of my face and they don’t show off my rolls since I’m seated for most of the workout (Yikes…) I wear my flat sneakers because I don’t have cycle shoes, but they work well. I also wear a headband normally to help deal with the whole sweating issue.

Weightlifting:

I started weightlifting when I was in high school for volleyball and have learned more and more about it since then. I love to do legs when I weight lift because I LOVE workin my booty! I don’t do much back or chest weightlifting because those aren’t areas I tend to want lots of muscle definition, but I’m trying to expand my horizons and do that more, but when it’s time to work that booty, this is what I wear.

For weightlifting, I stick to comfy pants that give me space to move when I squat and do lunges and things. I also pick leggings that aren’t see through when they stretch out!!! This is a big problem I find with a lot of leggings so if you have a big booty or are doing lots of squats, always try them on and check to see if you can see your underwear through them in the mirror when u squat down! For shirts, I go tighter because I don’t want them to get in the way and get caught on weights or benches. I don’t go skin tight because I don’t like my clothes to fit that way, but it’s personal preference. I again stick to the flatter shoes because it’s good for you to wear shoes that are as flat as possible when you weight lift. I know lots of people who wear converse to lift, but I’m not a very serious weightlifter honestly ad my white converse stay on reserve for cute outfits only.

I hope you guys found this helpful and let me know what you love to wear to the gym! I’m just starting my CHAARG Summer FitPlan so I’ll be working out a TON and would love some suggestions!
