With the ever-growing selection of sports clothing, it is sometimes not that easy to find the right outfit for your workout.
Because sports such as yoga, HIIT or body combat place different demands on clothing so that you can train properly.
We reveal what you need to look out for in order to find the right clothing for every sport.
The right material for HIIT workouts
In so-called HIIT training, different exercises are combined that you can do with your body weight. So you don’t need any more equipment than a fitness mat.
The exercises are performed one after the other in circuit units – often without breaks. After a short breather, the circle can then be repeated.
Since the training is particularly sweaty, your outfit should be made of materials that are breathable and can absorb sweat well. It is also important that the clothing fits well and does not slip during the exercises.
A sports bra that fits properly ensures that your breasts are well protected and that movements are cushioned.
The FIT FOR FUN test of the best sports bras shows that the Adidas Stronger For It Soft Bra is a particularly good choice for HIIT sessions.
Leggings and tops should also be breathable. Instead of a top, you can also wear just a sports bra during your workout.
Well prepared for yoga
In yoga, it is important that you find relaxation in movement and breathing. Although there are many different types of yoga, they all have in common that you need an outfit in which you can move easily.
When you wear a matching sports bra to yoga, you don’t even need a top anymore. Yoga bras are usually the size of a crop top and ensure that everything stays in place despite movement. Just like the sports bra by Yvette, which was voted the winner in the FIT FOR FUN test.
If you do power yoga, a well-fitting high-waist legging like the yoga leggings from Beelu is suitable. It did particularly well in the sports leggings test.
For relaxed yoga, you can also fall back on yoga leggings that sit wider. Make sure, however, that you have a sweatshirt or sweater that you can throw on during the relaxation phase at the end of the yoga routine so that you don’t get cold.
Space to move in body combat
Body combat is becoming increasingly popular. Dynamic boxing movements are performed at intervals – be it with the arms, the legs or both. However, without a punching bag or gloves, but into the room.
The training is strenuous and you need to be able to make large movements with your legs. That’s why you need leggings that are easy to move and fit really well. In addition, the material should not be too thick, as you can quickly get warm during the workout.
Therefore, for example, the Formotion Sculpt Leggings from Adidas are suitable, which ensure that you can move well.
When it comes to tops, you can choose a well-fitting sports bra or a breathable top or t-shirt. However, you should not dress too warmly.
