It's yoga clothing so it is meant to fit very loosely on the body and be easy to move in. I have a lot of stuff from them and I always size down. LLL stuff is amazing, I highly recommend it.

I sized down as well. I live on the westcoast basically right next to where Lululemon was started in Vancouver, and when you go to the gym at the university, no word of a lie, at least 85 to 90% of people are wearing at least one thing from Lululemon. It is really comfortable, really good quality stuff.

yeah i have heard about the quality from various people, at current my workouts is based around weight lifting, hence why i want something thats geared towards that type of training.

although this one is appealing: http://lululemon.com/products/mens/t...bbb_recess_tee

I do mostly cardiovascular and high-intensity training, as opposed to lifting (static), like kickboxing, wind sprints, basketball, soccer.

Nike Pro/ Dri Fit and Adidas Climacool does a good job of sweat wicking. I would recommend them. As for socks, most synthetics are good, but the Nike Elite Running is fully nylon/poly and really keeps the feet dry.

nike sphere if you don't like the tight fit of nike pro can be had for relatively cheap at local outlets etc

Store brand tshirts and mesh shorts. I don't like wearing advertising in the gym any more than anywhere else.

if you're lifting then it's fine but if your doing more aerobic orientated stuff, sometimes the technology behind a cotton tee and regular polyester shorts won't cut it.

The problem with cotton is that it doesn't stay warm when wet. Problem on the trail when you're worried about hypothermia, not so much on the road/in the gym. That said, my favorite shirt is a 50 poly/50 cotton from 8th grade.

The bigger point here is not to let lack of high-tech gear keep you from training.

I've got some Champion shorts and sleeveless shirts I wear at the gym. They are all cotton and seem Ok - the temperature at the gym is not a problem. One of the good things is they are not that expensive - so I'm not worried if the gym's laundry service messes the up.

I agree, I don't work out or do anything athletic in cotton anymore because the sweat just seems to "sit" on you and I really hate that. As Tiger pointed out too when you have to worry about hypothermia cotton is also not the way to go.
