Hats When Working Out?


#1

Ok, it has been a pretty long time since I have posted on here. Been hanging out in the back...

But, I just have to ask...What is with wearing a hat in the gym while working out? I mean is the sun going to get in your eyesâ?¦is it that important that you look goodâ?¦..this surpasses all levels of douche-baggery to me. I donâ??t understand why someone feels the need to work out with a hat on. Just wondering if I am the only one who feels like this.

some pricks also wear sunglasses when they work out


#3


I wear a hat sometimes because I like to wear fucking hats.


#4

Then by all means were a hate. It will still not change the fact I find it ridiculous. It is just not practical and it gets in my way. I wear a hat all day, but at the gym I see no need for it. Dont care who is wearing it.


#5

I sometimes find a baseball cap pulled down low helps me zone out the rest of the gym and focus on my workout. Other times it gets hot and sweaty and I take it off. Depends on my mood


#6

I wear a hat pretty frequently in and out of the gym.

Why are you so concerned with what other people are wearing?


#7

Of all the things to give a shit about, you picked a really weak one.


#8

maybe some of us have receding hairlines? Bet you didn't think of that huh asshole. The world would be a much better place if people just minded their own fucking business.


#9

I shaved my head and my ears get cold.


#10

During the winter months I sometimes wear a beanie.

2nd.


#12

Jews tend not to walk 6 feets without headcovering, as such we wear headcover in the gym.


#13

Not a good idea for overhead work but my personal preference is a top hat (occasionally a trilby). You'll be th classiest guy in the gym.

I train at home though...


#14

I wear a hat every workout. It soaks up my sweat so it doesn't get in my eyes.


#15

Are you serious?

Go back to hanging out in the back. Please.


#16

If you are training outside in the sun, I see no need for a hat. I sweat way too much to wear one and not make it gross from the sweat.


#17

I dont know about you guys, but I sweat like CRAZY from my head, If I dont wear a hat while working out I am literally wiping my forehead every 30 seconds with a towel. I actually fold up some paper towels and put them under my hat to catch all the sweat, have to replace it 1 or 2 times per workout.

That is why I where a hat.

only douchebags wear hat

Posillico et. al. (2009) concluded that caps during the performance of high intensity bicep curls led to a 11-16% increase in muscular strength and a 4% increase in biceps brachii hypertrophy.

::Translation::

Hats make you HYUUUUGE!
