Whenever I work out I know I need to wear the right pants because if I don’t I cannot enjoy the time spent at the gym.
Few people know that if they don’t dress appropriately they might feel like quitting in no time especially in the summer.
And we don’t want that just because a bad fashion choice.
The right fabric
The first issue on the list should be choosing the right fabric. Workout clothes including pants come in many fabrics.
- Synthetic fabric – the newest types of synthetic have the ability to simply take all the sweat from your skin and bring it to surface so that it can evaporate in no time.
However, if you don’t pay attention and if you choose the wrong synthetic it may have exactly the opposite effect and just keep the sweat on the inside. This can lead to skin irritation and severe discomfort which inevitably leads to wishing you would quit.
- Cotton pants – cotton pants seem to be the most comfortable for the skin because this fabric is very well tolerated by most people. Unfortunately, regular cotton workout pants are not very good at getting rid of the sweat. In fact, they absorb the sweat and keep it in the fabric.
Don’t be surprised if you feel your pants too heavy all of a sudden. If you choose the cotton stretch pants for yoga for example, they might be the best choice, but if you plan on sweating a lot go with the synthetic fabrics that most athletes choose.
The weather conditions
The weather conditions are also very important to make sure your workout pants are the best. If you work out indoors there is no need to dress warmly. Just make sure your clothes are dry when you leave the gym. However, if you work out outdoors especially during the cold season, choose clothes that keep you warm.
You should also consider that once you start working out your heart rhythm will increase and your body temperature will rise too. Specialists say that the best solution is to wear layers. Once you feel to warm just remove a layer.
The length of the pants
The length of the pants should also be considered. Most of the times, it is all up to the temperature and personal preferences. However, if plan on cycling for example, don’t choose long pants baggy because they might even be dangerous if they get caught in the treadle.
The body type
The body type is another very important criterion when choosing the best workout pants. For example, if you have a tummy, don’t choose very tight pants that will make it difficult to breathe. If you don’t like how your legs look in shorts go with the Capri pants.
After all, you need to feel great and look great to want to go back to the gym.
