As obesity rates continue to rise across the nation, men are finding that they need to work both the gym and outdoor circuit to stay in shape all year-round. In the past, you threw on some sweats and sneakers, running out the door to jog around the block. Today’s technology has made it easier, and safer, to exercise at any age. Take a look at some of the top trending items that are contributing to men’s fitness. There are even some fashion trends that melt into this category too.
1. UV Clothing
With skin cancer as a potential threat, you should wear UV clothing when you choose an outdoor workout. Instead of covering yourself in sunscreen, that tends to rub off, shirts and pants keep you protected from sunburn and skin damage.
2. Compression Sleeves
Colorful compression sleeves can be worn on the legs or arms. Keep those sore muscles in place as you weight lift or jog a mile. Make sure to size the sleeve correctly for the best support. You’re not looking to cut off your circulation.
3. Training Shorts
Match your workout type to your shorts. Look for cross-training shorts that allow you to bend and stretch while still retaining a solid form on your frame. Many designs hold your groin area in place without any threat of pinching or excessive compression as you work out.
