Just in time for you to reach your summer body goals.
When taking on an intense workout challenge, the right gym attire is crucial to keeping your focus on your moves. Sure, you can pull anything out of your closet that’s comfortable, but if you’ve ever been self conscious or distracted by the way your workout clothes bunch, ride up, or wear away as you work up a sweat, you’ll appreciate Lululemon’s new License to Train capsule collection.
The collection of train-specific apparel combines the right fabric and fit to conquer any HIIT workout, including tops, shorts, and even top-quality performance underwear. Lululemon is already a go-to choice for stylish and durable workout clothes with moisture-wicking and four-way stretch fabrication, but this capsule collection has the specific, thoughtful details that make a hell of a difference for weight-training and conditioning. To really see if the new collection measures up to our expectations, the Men’s Health fitness editors put the cool new gear to the test.
“The best part of this training shirt is the fit,” said Men’s Health Fitness Director Ebenezer Samuel about the new Always Agile short-sleeve shirt. “It's not too loose and flowy, so it's never in your way when you're training, and it's just tight enough that you can see your frame and your form.” Besides the stellar fit, the standout shirt has a scooped back hem for extra coverage, gussets under the arm to help you move freely in your workout with extra ventilation, and quick-drying fabric to stay cool and comfortable.
That’s not the only item that got a thumbs-up review. “The shorts are super comfortable, without that weird bunching effect you’ll get with other shorts that go too hard on the liner,” said Men’s Health Associate Fitness Editor Brett Williams of the unlined T.H.E. Short. Whether you go for the lined option (featuring OOM liner construction that feels more like a short than a brief) or go for the unlined version, these training shorts have sweat-wicking, breathable fabric, a secure storage pocket, and are cut with a little extra room by the quads and backside for comfort.
While you’re getting ready to level-up your fitness game for your ultimate summer body goals, it’s worth checking out the Lululemon License to Train collection for activewear that’s both stylish and functional. Yep, just another reason for Lululemon to take all of our money.
