Jumping, weight training, squatting, running long distancing your way through your workout is hard enough, but its almost impossible or 20x harder if you have to stop after every rep to adjust saggy leggings or uncomfortable and unsupportive sports bras. There are so many brands out there that not only are they ridiculously overpriced, but their material and fit doesn’t complement a women figure. Here are some tips to use when selecting the perfect activewear for your workouts…
1. Sweat Wicking Fabric:
Strong Supplex material with the right combination of elasticity to polyamida (proper stretch cotton) will not only hold up in your toughest sprints or cycle class, but will feel comfortable and keep you DRY your entire workout!
2. Soft and Easy to Pull up and Down:
Sounds simple right, but it's not… in the world of activewear too many companies have leggings that feel like rubber. The worst is while working out you need to run to the restroom and to pull your sweaty pants down and especially back up where they stick to your skin is the pits! Brazil Pants will never have this! It is naturally humid in Brazil, so clothing cannot feel sticky when wet! The right softness combined with the supplex material makes these pants easy to slide down and up when wet without ever sagging or falling down in your workout!
3. Do a SQUAT Approval TEST!!
Best way to feel out your pants, squat it out, take them for their test run right when you buy them! Go in front of your own mirror and go for it “Squat it out!” Move around, bend it out, and just go for it. Better to make sure at home you are not giving a see thru show to your workout buds. Test them out!
“When in doubt…Squat it out…”
4. Find an outfit you feel confident in…
Confidence is key! Feeling good about yourself and your outfit before even hitting your workout makes the biggest impact to a successful day. Whether its a quick 30 minute HIIT class training or a two hour long distance bike or run, make sure you are putting your best self out there. You will be more likely to push harder and work to your max in an outfit that reflects you!
