Exercise has becoming more and more trendy nowadays and a lot of women are wondering whether they are wearing the right clothing for their workout or not. Here are some tips that will help you select the right clothing to keep you looks fashionable as well as protecting you.
1. Choose the clothing with the right fabric
Fabrics that are flexible, moisture-wicking, temperature-specific or otherwise engineered will help keep you dry and comfortable as you exercise. But not all “performance” fabrics are created equal, so make sure you’re getting what you pay for.
Don’t wear a baggy cotton t-shirt because 100% cotton clothing isn’t the best choice for a sweaty workout. Cotton absorbs moisture easily, so you’ll be stuck with a heavy, sticky shirt that can cause irritation and will get cold as soon as you’re done exercising. Plus, baggy clothing is actually a safety risk since it can get caught in a exercise machine.
2. Take off all your bling bling jewellery
Many people have accessories that they never take off — whether it’s a wedding ring, keepsake necklace or family watch. However, you risk damaging jewellery by banging it against a weight or snagging it on a machine, and perspiration can dirty up the metal or cause an allergic reaction, so leave it at home.
3. Wear the right clothing for your workout
You need to wear your exercise clothing according to the workouts you want to do. So think about the kind of exercises you’ll be doing before you change. If you’re headed to a yoga class, grab some yoga tights or leggings, while loose shorts with a compression tights are better for a rigorous cardio routine that involves a lot of jumping.
4. Get a supportive sports bra
A sports bra is a bra that provides support to women’s breasts during physical exercise. Sturdier than typical bras, they minimize breast movement, alleviate discomfort, and reduce potential damage to chest ligaments. Why it’s important to wear sports bra? Breasts have no muscle, yet without proper support, the skin and Cooper’s ligaments (ligaments near the breast which give them their size and shape) can break down and cause sagging. Once your Cooper’s ligaments stretch out, they do not bounce back anymore. Scary, right?
5. Choose your socks and shoes wisely
It’s critical to choose shoes that fit you properly and provide the support you need for different workouts. For example, running shoes are a bad choice for cross-training because they don’t have any lateral support. Wear proper sports socks that compress or fit nicely on parts of your leg so that the socks doesn’t move too much which will rub against your leg and results in blisters.
