    dont hate me cause im pretty. i look nice at the gym cause it adds to the lifestyle. if you walk around on your cell phone and do a few reps a hour then you should kill yourself. but im a fcuking beast in the gym. me looking pretty while deadlifting is fine in my book.

For warming up, I have all the layers, after which I peal the sweatshirt. After that, I only go down to sleeveless if I'm sweating up a storm.

    For the legs I get a comfortable pair of shorts and put a pair of of sweats over them if it's cold outside.

    My footwear is either a pair of boots or gym shoes. The boots are chosen if I prefer to have better stability that workout, if I'll be lifting heavier that day, or if it's just snowy or wet outside because I have to walk to the gym and back.

    I'm not sure why I took the time to explain this, but I hope you enjoyed this comprehensive explanation of my workout clothing.

    Oh yeah, and I always wear my fizogen strap for "extreme and INSTANTANEOUS effect on endurance, strength and mental focus is unlike anything ever to hit the market before!"
    GET STRAPPED!
    A dude in my gym wears the EXACT same thing.

    You are not from Ohio are you? haha

    No, sir.
    Does the dude in your gym match everything exactly down to the Fizogen Strap?
    That part was actually a big fat lie, I can't afford to harness the power of a quantum polarized sports pendant.

    LOL. that is me to when I train alone and not filming my lifts. The neighbors probably think i'm crazy when they see me in shorts and tshirt in the rain pulling my sled up the street.

    Maybe not the strap, but everything else you sadi was dead on. The boots, everything.

    It's not about "showing off" or "seeing the muscle I'm working", it's about being comfortable. I wear a tank top and shorts. I can't bring myself to wear pants of any kind or shirts with sleeves. I get hot really easily and I sweat like a whore in church. I really do think I sweat much more than the average person.

    I wear those "dri-fit" type of shirts with no sleeves. They're usually just sleeveless tops, but sometimes I have a "wifebeater" version.
    I like to watch myself when I'm working out - it's more motivating to see the muscle contracting.

    I usually wear track pants now - again with moisture wicking material. I used to wear shorts. In super hot weather, I wear shorts.

    I dunno. Some people may think I'm trying to show off or something - but until they start paying my membership for me, I'm going to wear what I feel most comfortable in. Besides, I sometimes sweat like crazy when doing cardio - so the less clothing the better...

    I never train in pants, always wear shorts and I almost always wear a sleeveless shirt to train. I like to see the muscles when I'm training. I don't understand how guys train in flannel shirts and sweatpants. They just sweat like crazy and it has to be uncomfortable.
    Here in Vegas at my Golds we have this weird cult of guys who only wear long sleeve white t-shirts, even in the summer. They have to be white and worn only with black sweats. I see at least 15-20 guys everyday sporting that look.
