    I guess that I wouldnt know. Olympic lifts are something I have essentially never done. I was taught how to do them a couple of decades ago, but they were never used in our training regimes. But for circuit training, cotton sucks. Tech fabrics are strong and lightweight and fairly close fitting so that they don't flap all over the place.

    Is it bad that I want to wear North Face Purple Label, Nonnative, and Outlier, all winter?

    I like Nike's Dri-Fit shirts for running.

    Zappos? Nike?

    http://www.zappos.com/nike-dri-fit-touch-s-s-heathered-tumbled-grey-deep-pewter-heather-black These are what I've been wearing. They look semi decent and are "semi-fitted" which is pretty relaxed. I am 5'11" and 180 lbs, and the medium fits "relaxed: on me. Do not get the "Legend" tee unless you are 300 lbs. I bought a M, and it's big enough to be a nightshirt. It would be relaxed on a 230 lb man.

    I bought the "Legend" tee because it was $22, instead of $35, or $45 for the shirts with mesh. I guess sometimes you really do get more for less.

    I mostly wear cotton shirts. I have a bunch of dri fit shirts that are probably 3-4 years old, but I find they cause a lot of static cling. Maybe too much body hair....

    hmm in the texas heat i use to always run shirtless..

    though drenched cotton is good because it helps cool you down. it dries really quickly in heat like that anyways.

    I prefer hair shirts for daily wear and the gym. Tech fabrics are alright, but they do a terrible job at reminding me of my fealty to The Lord

    I've never run without a shirt. It is a lose lose situation. If you are in shape and cut, you look like a smug douchebag. If you are not cut, you just look like a fat douchebag. A shirt always seems like a good idea. Or at least wear a singlet.

    In all fairness, athleisure is a big trend, so...
