What do You Wear on Leg Day?

I can’t stand training legs while wearing sweat pants. That said, it’s getting pretty damn cold and it’s even cold inside the gym.

I went to a sports store yesterday and tried on a bunch of sweats. They were all pretty uncomfortable when doing a squat motion; the ass part gets pulled down and it’s obnoxious to be dealing with that in the middle of a set.

In the past I’ve worn tights. Not girl tights (obviously) and not HotSkins striped tights from the 80’s. I’m talking about UnderArmour ColdGear tights or the ones that Nike makes for running. I was training at a hardcore gym, though, and now I train at a commercial gym and I wouldn’t want anyone to call me gay … that would really hurt my feelings! :wink:

Anyway. What kind of sweats do guys wear? What kind should I get?

i swear spandex shorts so people can see how jacked my legs are…what? its not gay.

I wear some XL or XXL sweats, ones that are big enough for full ROM and keep my legs warm on the walk over (I live on a college campus).

Just give them big enough that they don’t interfere with lifting.

Shorts, the same ones I wear every other day. I do have to hike them up when I get setup, otherwise they catch. My boxers are the same way, but they have a tendency to tear easier.

Damn, that sucks, going from a hardcore to commercial gym.

But I usually just wear some athletic shorts.

always shorts, leg day or not.

Wear shorts. All of the time.

They keep you from ignoring calves.

Leg warmers, like in Flash Dance.

They have to be neon green or pink though. No earth tones here.

If you are man enough to wear some leg warmers, be man enough to make sure they glow in the day time and that you learn how to flash dance in the middle of the gym to “I’m so excited…and I just can’t hide it”.

You say that like it’s a bad thing. Just admit it. You want her.

It’s a hard knock life.

Football or Basketball shorts… I may wear workout pant but they end up coming off after warm-up.

Loose sweatpants whenever I do pulls, shorts for everything else. Otherwise, my shins bleed.
