cool thanks for the responses guys. As for working out, i also incorporate MA training into my regiment so that could be counted as a Dynamic workout, you guys still recommend synthetics for that? I'm consider going with Lululemon for that.


thanks.

Agreed. Regular cotton just doesn't cut it. I like Nike Dri Fit and Under Armour a lot.

cotton tends to be hydrophillic (water loving) and just absorb the water...while tech's such as nike dri-fit/sphere etc are dual layered with the layer closest to the body being hydrophillic and the layer on the outside hydrophobic (doesn't like water)... as well it spreads the water out to induce quicker evaporation

Tight fitting synthetics like underarmour and nike pro t-shirts are good for cardio , but the look isn't for everyone. I often wear a tight shirt under a normal cotton t-shirt when I'm stretching or lifting weights, then take off the cotton t-shirt when I do cardio. If you sweat a lot, you can wipe the sweat off a tight fitting shirt with a towel since those shirts pull the moisture to the outside of the shirt.

Lycra/spandex compression shorts are a good idea if your thighs rub together walking or running.

try them on. i like the UA tops, but the shorts are too long and baggy.

if you don't sweat much and don't need the compression to fit under a jersey etc i'd go withsomething looser i.e. nike sphere. I throw a lot of nike out there but thats simply cause i have a lot of experience with it so i am not discounting the fact there are other plausible choices out there

not all UA apparel is compression fit. they have looose fit line.

also, i'm very picky about socks, and my favorites are new balance. ask for the running socks that prevent blisters. i use them for everything, including tennis and soccer.

yeh good call, i forgot about the loose t-shirts and pieces they create!

I quite like the Champion C9 stuff available at Target.

Just as moisture wicking as my Nike Dri-Fit shirts and shorts, but a heckuva lot cheaper.

Under Armour is great. Keeps you cool and is easy to move in. Also, it's very good quality. Plus, you can always wear a cotton T-shirt overtop of it if you don't feel comfortable wearing skin-tight clothes.

Nike Dri-Fit has awesome gear that wicks away the sweat, is not too clingy, and is very breathable.

I would also suggest trying Under Armour. That's made for more athletic endeavors.

ha, this is a funny thread, just the other day we were at the gym discussing what a great invention LLL pants were for the female gender.

But PLEASE listen.

i live in vancouver, and you will NOT find any self-respecting male wearing LLL. Stick with the expected sources: nike, adidas, under armour for youre regular gym atire. the VERY few guys you see wearing LLL are not guys you want to emulate in style or physique.

please, if you are male, do not start wearing LLL. but do encourage them tight ass pants for the women.
