Could you be making some crucial mistakes with your gym wear? For most men, gym wear is whatever is a little old, a little absorbent and doesn’t get too hot. If you want to get the most out of your workouts it is important to make sure that you are wearing the right gym attire every time you work out. So what should you be looking for in gym wear for men? Here are a few tips:
• Your gym wear should be made of moisture wicking fabric. Moisture wicking fabric is the kind of fabric that is designed specifically to absorb sweat’. Sure, the old t-shirt you usually wear may be able to absorb sweat but since it wasn’t designed specifically for that it doesn’t do a particularly good job of it. Look at the label to make sure that the gym outfit you choose is made of moisture wicking material.
• Choose clothing that fits. Many men assume that larger clothing is better for workouts because it enables easier movement. This is actually not true. When you wear clothing that is too large it makes movement difficult not to mention it makes you look smaller and a little awkward.
• Stop putting on cologne to go to the gym. So there is this girl you really like and you don’t think smelling sweaty is going to help your cause. Why not douse yourself in a bit of cologne before you start your workout? Big mistake – when you are in a closed environment like a gym you are only going to make people feel ill. Good hygiene is all that is required if you don’t want to smell bad. Fresh sweat doesn’t smell bad, so make sure you take a shower every morning.
These are just a few tips that you should keep in mind when you are dressing for the gym. There are many more so keep your eyes open.
