Summer Sweat Survival: What to Wear When Working Out!

Summer Workout ClothesThe summer is starting to heat up, meaning more bikini & beach time. Don’t let the summer sizzle keep you from exercising outside. Armed with the right clothing and accessories, you won’t have a problem beating the heat to keep your six-pack going strong. Here are the top picks for hot weather workouts:


Lululemon Tie And Fly Tank: This adorable top, available in a variety of fun colors is made with moisture wicking, anti-stink, chafe-resistant material, allowing your body to breathe throughout your workout. The back of the shirt is open-holed mesh which will allow a nice breeze to come your way.

C9 by Champion Women’s Reversable Racerback Bra: Who can say no to getting two items for the price of one? Ok, well it’s technically just one bra, but it’s reversible and available in awesome color and pattern combinations. This bra is perfect, giving enough support that on the hottest of days you can attempt your workout sans-shirt.

Lululemon Hot but Not Tank: This tank takes workout clothes to a sexy new level. It’s best designed for yoga as it doesn’t give the support some may need for a hard run. The cut-out tank is loose-fitting and has a featherlight feel. Bikram yoga anyone?


Lululemon Turbo Run Shorts: These may be the most flattering and comfortable shorts around. If running in summer heat makes you sweat and chafe, these shorts are the answer. The shorts have a built in liner and flat seams to ensure a smooth run.

Sugoi Moxie Travel Skirt: If you’re going for the fashionable and functional look, a running skirt is right up your alley. Check this one out; it provides enough coverage to keep you modest and is made with temperature regulating and moisture wicking material.

Nike Printed Road Race Shorts: These classic Nike shorts (now available in tons of patterns and colors to choose from) include mesh detailing and are made with Dri-FIT material, allowing your body to breathe and work through the sweat.


Sweaty Bands Viva Diva Headband: Keep your sweaty bangs out of your face while adding sparkle to your workout. This headband is tight enough to stay in place without giving you a headache and is available in all sparkly colors of the rainbow.

Nike Daybreak Running Cap: A major issue with running in the sun is if you put sunscreen on your face and you start to sweat, it’s likely going to get in your eyes and it stings like crazy. If you choose to forgo the sunscreen you may be looking a nasty post-race burn. A cute running cap is the perfect accessory to keep your skin safe.

Nuun Tablets: It’s extremely important to stay hydrated through a workout, especially when you’re sweating extra hard during the summer. These electrolyte enhanced tablets contain no sugar or carbs and can easily be added to your bottle of water for a refreshing taste and an extra kick of electrolytes.
