Stuff I Like: More Fitness Stuff.

Back in the spring I wrote a post about fitness stuff I liked- apps, equipment, etc., and today I'm going to mention some clothes I like for workouts (or for life because, let's face it, the lines between fitness wear and real clothes has gotten quite blurry over here.) Here we go:

First up - this tank, y'all:

Lululemon has definitely gone disappointing in the past few years but I bought two of these Brunswick Muscle Tanks last year (worn here: one black, one striped) and they are still going strong. I wear them as everyday tanks but also they're great for workouts. I love the little gather detail at the shoulder and they are just really well-designed. Also, the logo is tonal so you can be stealthy with your LL.

Now, if you're an outdoor activity person, this jersey is a good investment:

It's the Yeti Hayden jersey and I love it. It comes in three colors and is perfect for those days when I don't want to wear a full bike kit. If I'm just going for a quick mountain bike ride and want to be comfortable I throw this on with baggy shorts. It does run a bit small, so I sized up and was happy with the fit. It's got one back pocket that exactly fits my phone and could be a really good shirt for hiking or running too - it's got some great features (hidden sunglasses wipe, actively cooling material) and doesn't look like a cycling shirt. Also, if you put it in your shopping cart Backcountry will give you an automatic 15% off.

And, hey, these are running shorts:

Do you know how hard it is to find running shorts with a longer inseam? (And to be clear, I am not a runner but I do like to have fitness shorts for walking, etc.) These Stoic shorts are great because they have a 5" inseam and a built-in liner. They also have one zip pocket up front but are otherwise pretty simple. I got my usual size and was happy but I'd say they run a tiny bit big. Did I mention they are on sale? Like, really on sale.

Finally, if you're still scrambling to find some weights:

These Ignite dumbbells at Target are surprisingly good quality. They're exactly like the ones my gym has and I have been haunting the depleted fitness aisle at my store, trying to find what I need. So far I've scored  a set of 8lb and 10lb but I want more! They sell out fast so keep your eyes on the website and in store.


  1. I do know how hard it is to find running shorts with a longer inseam!! I don't really like built-in liners though...I see a reviewer mentioned cutting it out so maybe that's an option.

  2. Ooooh, I love that Lululemon tank! And one of my fave parts about wfh is that I can take a quick exercise break. I recently bought a weighted bar to add to my dumbbells and bands, and I love it.
