“It has to be hard so you don’t forget.”
I am writing this blog after being home from a hard and sweating session in the gym, wondering how aptly this fabulous quote summarizes my time there. You too could be in the same boat maybe with or without the quote, and that simply doesn’t make much of a difference. But there is something else that I was pondering over ever since.
Isn’t the quality of our workouts related directly with how enthusiastic are we about our goals and the way we see ourselves? Doesn’t this observation nail the fact that what all we eat in private, we wear out in the public? What if our diet comes in the way of how we work out to be a better professional?
I am switching the argument for some time here. We all know we should wear something light and comfortable even for warm-ups, let alone workouts. You could easily find a ton of help on the internet for it, though we have some expert insights coming up next.
My question is about discipline. This question starts a step before you even wear those easy, light, and gym-specific comfy clothes. It concerns itself with the way you look at yourself and the way you intend to take your life forward.
We often smoke ourselves out with sweat and fatigue to get into a good shape in gyms. We all have been there. So last night, here’s what I promised to myself: stay focused on my reason to workout, excuse the excuses, and avoid all distractions related a bad diet practice.
Now let’s get back to the question of gym clothes.
Wearing proper Active Gear is an absolute must for warm-ups and exercises. It is important to understand that athletic gear is both a commitment and an investment. You should opt for something flexible, light, and helps you beat the heat just as quickly.
Something made of DRI-FIT fabric could be the best for workouts, especially for teenage girls and women. Such fabrics are light, super soft, breathable, and help you exercise without restraint. One can go for specialized apparel like Proactive Tanks, Mélange Tanks, and round-neck t-shirts for a better experience. Men can go for gym pants or shorts, joggers, sweat-wicking t-shirts, sweatshirts, etc.
Besides, one could also go for compression clothing and those made of the following fabrics:
1. Nylon or acrylic
3. Polyester or Nylon Spandex
6. A mix of the above
7. Sports and Athletic gear manufactured by various brands
8. Heat regulating clothes
9. Drag-resistant gear (for swimmers and cyclers)
PS: I would personally go for DRI-FIT fabric for my routine workout schedules. You sure could choose something else!
There is a time and place for everything, as the saying goes. This also makes a way to understand the significance of what to wear while exercising. Secondly, these tailor-made fabrics help you keep the momentum going for you. You can consciously remain physically, psychologically, and mentally fit by working out and thus go on your way of magnifying the achieved results.
Here’s what else you can check for before you settle on a particular type of workout clothes:
1. Is it lightweight and easy to wear?
2. Is it comfortable? Can you wear it for a longer duration of time while working out?
3. Can it absorb moisture?
4. Will it dry just as easily?
5. Is it sweat- and odor-resistant?
6. Does it help with proper air circulation, especially in hot and humid weather?
7. Is it long-lasting?
8. Is it affordable?
9. Does it look good on you?
10. Is it optimized for different types of exercises like workouts, running, cycling, etc.?
I hope this checklist would help you enough insight to zero in on a particular type of fabric as you prepare to hammer yourself to drive out the weakness in your body. Be sure to consult an expert or a personal fitness trainer for what works best for you.
This is a special case. Since every human body is different, it makes perfect sense to understand that different people may perspire differently. You could go for nylon or cotton fabrics to keep a tab on your perspiration and to keep on working as usual.
I would like to ask you to remain cautious about what you eat and how you do it. This would again help you refocus your energies on something that’s even more important. It shouldn’t be hard enough for you to work out while you keep yourself motivated.
