When doing cardio is it better to wear heavy clothing like sweat shirts, heavy hoodie or lighter clothing like t-shirts or tank tops. Looking to drop my body fat at least 3 percent.
Light clothing is going to keep you cooler, and not sweat as much. For some, that is.
Heavy clothing, is gonna heat you up quickly, and getting you sweating buckets. So keep hydrated.
I'd give it a go in heavy clothing, and see if you can tolerate it.
Its gonna depend on how badass you are.
I'm really not joking, I wouldn't go running in the summer with a jumper on......
If you want to make your cardio less easy or get you more ripped, try HIIT.
Or throw on a pair of shorts, an old beater, and a rucksack with a couple of 45lb plates in it.
That sorts the men from the boys !
I'm trying to drop a few % for the summer too and I'm using fasted HIIT in the form of bodyweight circuit training in the morning
sweating out water weight isn't dropping body fat. I'd go with comfortable clothing so I can put out and get the most out of my workouts rather than overheat, become dehydrated, or just generally not put out as hard because I'm I feel like I already had due to being hot and sweaty.

As a sidenote, if you're looking at losing fat, then make sure your NUTRITION AND TRAINING are set up for it!
I prefer wearing comfortable clothes (jogging pants, a shirt, rubber shoes) since I get more out of my work out with those. I tried wearing sweatshirts and all, it just made me feel uncomfortable since I feel like I'm overheating- which discouraged me from going on with the routine.
theres no real point to workout in heavy clothes because your only going to lose the water weight for a very short period of time. Wrestlers do it to make weight, they run forever but afterwards you can drink any water otherwise you will gain it right back. You need to limit water consumption if you water to drop water weight, or use a duretic.
