There was a time when i workout in regular clothes but when try my new pair of push up leggings i was stunned of the difference in my workout session.
1.SWEAT-WICKING & BREATHABILITY
Due to the fact that you’re going to be sweating a lot during your workouts, it helps to have the appropriate clothes. And having breathable fabrics (like the specialty fabric found in Endeavor Athletic's apparel) that wick away moisture and keep you feeling cool and dry is going to make a tremendous difference in how you feel.
Besides its sweat-wicking abilities, the performance fabric found in much of the Endeavor Athletic line is also great because it won’t promote bacteria growth. Less sweat and bacteria growth means no more smelly workout clothes!
Pro Tip: Cotton may seem breathable, but it starts to get heavy and gross once you’ve been sweating in it.
2.It can prevent injury
“Wearing appropriate clothing is crucial when you are an avid exerciser. Many sport injuries occur because of the lack of appropriate equipment, including clothes. Whichever activity you are engaged in, you should opt for the clothing for that particular sport, looking for something that provides ample protection against impact, strain, or overheating.
“I’d advise investing in good quality compression wear, this type of kit increases circulation and blood flow to the heart, delivering much needed oxygen to working muscles, reducing fatigue and soreness by managing lactic acid accumulation, helping to improve power, endurance and recovery.”
Getting to the gym and getting started can be the hardest part of your fitness routine. If you don’t have any clean gym clothes or can’t find your shoes, chances are you will be more likely to skip the gym that day. However, if you lay out your gym clothes the night before you will be more motivated to show up and get the work done. You will probably have a better workout, too!
4.DURABILITY OF CLOTHES
You don’t have to spend a ton of money to get great, long-lasting workout clothes. However, if you’re someone who loves to splash out on expensive leggings, this one may make you feel better. The right workout gear is typically going to be extra durable, allowing you to get plenty of use out of it. Compared to what you'd find at a typical department store or on a sale rack, performance clothing such as Endeavor Athletic's will last for a much longer time.
5.You won’t feel restricted
“Lightweight materials and well-designed active wear should feel like a second skin, ensuring you don’t feel restricted while you train. Exercising in total comfort will allow you to solely concentrate on the task at hand, and workout to the best of your ability. Choosing clothing that allows full range of movement is incredibly important, so when choosing fitness clothing, pay close attention to the design and tailoring, opting for seamless kit which won’t irritate your skin, or rub.”
Having an outfit that makes you feel good about yourself can be great motivation to get to the gym. Wearing your pajamas- or the oldest clothes in the back of your closet- just isn’t going to cut it in terms of increasing motivation. Use this as an opportunity to buy a new exercise outfit that you love and are excited to wear for your next workout.
7.PROTECTION FROM THE ENVIRONMENT
Your workout clothes can also help protect you from the environment. If you’re planning to exercise outside in the summer when it’s hot, loose clothing and breathable fabrics are incredibly important. It’s going to help keep your body cool so you don’t get overheated. Plus, you’ll want to opt for lighter colors to reflect the sun’s rays away from your body.
For the cold winter months, you can layer on clothing to stay warm against the elements. However, it’s also smart to choose an outer layer that provides ventilation, allowing the easy regulation of your body temperature. You can then take it off if you find yourself getting too hot. But it’s also smart to have a breathable shirt on underneath, to promote sweat-wicking.
8.It can boost confidence
“Clothing can be empowering in everyday life, and when it comes to working out, contributing to our confidence levels and raising self-esteem. Indeed, there’s even a psychological phenomenon called “enclothed cognition” which suggests that the clothing a person wears can trigger mental changes that positively affect their performance and confidence level. In the simplest terms, when you look good, you feel more confident, so investing in gym kit which makes you feel the part can help you to feel better in the gym and truly conquer a workout.”
I am definitely guilty of wearing uncomfortable clothes to the gym- and my workouts have definitely suffered. Clothes that don’t fit properly, whether too tight or too loose, can hinder your movement and the efficiency of your exercise routine. If you are constantly pulling and tugging at your clothing, you won’t be nearly as productive in the gym.
10.It regulates and controls body temperature
“An intense session at the gym will leave you thankful that you didn’t wear that old cotton top, as cotton absorbs sweat easily and retains moisture, leaving you feeling damp and heavy. You should opt for light, breathable and sweat-wicking fabrics which will draw moisture away from the body, leaving you feeling dry and comfortable. Intelligent fabrics like XT Air, or XT Air ICE will also help to regulate and maintain your body temperature to ensure you can perform at your best, in the ultimate comfort.”
