When you are pushing yourself to the limits during your workout you need the appropriate clothing that can keep up with you. The Vanish Woven Shorts from Under Armour are a great choice to join you on your exercise regime. Available in sizes XS all the way up to XXL, they have a fitted finish, which means they are tailored in a more athletic style without being too tight or too loose in any area.
Along with running shoes, a decent sports bra is an absolute priority for me before I head out for a workout, case in point when my yoga class was cancelled at the last minute and a circuit class was put on instead I thought, ‘what the hell I’m already here!’ What a mistake, I was so uncomfortable throughout and still felt achy the next day.
The RUSH Short Sleeve top had the honour of making its debut appearance on the final day of my three-month Tough Mudder training, this had involved 8-mile runs, hour-long circuit training, hill sprints and many MANY pull ups, thankfully my last session consisted of a very gentle 5 miler (although it was chucking it down at the time, nice weather would be too easy).
I remember when I first started running about 14 years ago I used to do it in cargo shorts, I thought the baggier the better, cover up all those lumps and bumps (I also remember running in hiking boots once, how I didn’t bust a shin I do not know). Looking back I realise how difficult I was making things, not to mention the friction burn between my thighs, ouch. I never really understood why people used skin-tight clothing whilst working out, surely it was more restrictive, then my Mum got me some capri tights and the penny dropped.
There seems to be a bit of an issue with the men I work out with and the idea of exercise leggings, I guess as there is a lack of leggings for men in everyday high street fashion they are worried that putting a pair on will result in the Dude Police rocking up and revoking their male membership. It was only after pointing out that the buffest and most muscly PT in the gym wore leggings that I managed to persuade one of them into giving it a go and, albeit wearing shorts over the top, he realised how much better it was
Surely it makes sense that the tech we use to track our runs should be on our feet, not strapped to our arms, so it was only a matter of time before this tech made its way into our running shoes. The Under Amour HOVR Infinite Running Shoes come with a sensor imbedded into the shoe that digitally connects your feet to your phone. Fear not - this doesn’t have an impact on the weight or comfort of the shoe. It can be synced after your run, letting you take to the streets whilst leaving your phone at home (try it, you will feel liberated).
This attractive Hybrid Jacket comes in Black or Black with brown detailing (the best-looking version in our opinion) this lightweight jacket will help to keep you warm and dry thanks to the tough, water resistant woven panels you will be hard pushed to find an excuse not to get out in bad weather. with stretchy fabrics to give you protection and comfort while you train.
The Speed Stride shorts come in two colours Black or Black, my two favourite colours, but one version has a turquoise lining in the pockets, the fit is close to the skin but not tight or restricting, constructed from a lightweight woven fabric that delivers both comfort and durability. The internal mesh brief liner helps moisture escape the shorts and adds ventilation for when you are working hard.
The UA Vanish Seamless ¾ Sleeve is a rather unique piece, the mid-length sleeves give you a little bit of warmth without getting in the way, it is available in Blue, Red or Gray, we like the red best as it stands out from the crowd. This top features levels of mesh mapped to your body, for vast amounts of ventilation where you need it the most, it also has fewer seams to prevent the skin from becoming irritated during vigorous activities.
This short sleeve workout top comes in four colours Grey, White, Purple and Pink, it looks simple in the front but rather unique at the back due to the cutout construction with ribbed and mesh details, you will certainly get some mad tan lines if you wear this out in the sun. The cut out panel provides a good amount of ventilation in the back all while the rest of the material wicks away sweat, dries quickly and doesn’t cling to your skin when you get a sweat on.
