    When did this happen?

    Ok, so I'm an old guy. Going way back some years when we went to the gym we'd throw on something that resembled a tshirt or tank top. Usually it was torn up, worn out stained ect. The shirt basically was held together by a couple of threads. When I hit the gym today most of the big guys are covered up in multiple layers shirt, long sleeve hoodie and heavy workout pants. Hell if I wore this stuff to lift I think I'd throw up & pass out. What's up with this? Please explain

    Love it!!!! This described my training wardrobe perfectly from crica 1986 until 2009. I actually did have a beater that was 20+ years old with holes all in it. Good stuff!

    Now that I train exclusively at home, it is just a pair of under armor shorts and some NB running shoes.

    I think it has a lot to do with "muscle profiling", especially if they are involved in any dealings with AAS

    Lol I wear a tshirt usually with spandex shorts. Lol. Jk. Yuck that wouldn't be a great site. If i wore those you prob could see the swear rolling down the crack of my ass. Lol. Anywho there's this guys at my gym who wears those tight ass under armor lifting shirts. Well this kid is fat and should not be walking aroubd the gym like that. He puffs his chest out like he's big. I'm like I'm nothing special looking but i wear a beat up tshirt and shorts.

    I either wear a tank, black t or a sweatshirt exclusively on cardio day. Now if your workout wardrobe doesnt amount to over fifty dollars you get the stink eye at the gym. At least mine on base. I miss a good grimey gym, all business and not worrying about what your wearing.

    Re: When did this happen?

    I wear a long sleeve shirt that is too big. I do it so that people leave me the hell alone. I'm not in the gym to make friends or get bothered every other set.

    Ah those were some great times. I have always said I'd love to workout in just my undies & running shoes.

    I see that at my gym also and always think "how can they not pass out"! Most wear the basketball type shorts and either a T or tank...there is this gay guy that wears the short jogging shorts though...kind of entertaining

    This happened when they took off Pantera and put on Lil' Wayne at the gym.

    Hoody for warming-up when training during winter months, else pretty much whichever old nasty t-shirt and sweats were washed most recently

    I still can't imagine why Aeropostale hasn't come calling yet offering me their cover...
