Sisterhood of the Non-Traveling Workout Pants (Because One Size Does Not Fit ALL!)
We all have one.
That favorite pair of gym pants that we wish we didn’t have to wash, because we want to wear them for every single workout.
C’mon, you know you have a pair in mind! It’s that pair of leggings that just makes your booty look superb, moves with your body and fits like a glove. And since we all have different body types, it can be tough to find that perfect pair.
So just for fun, we put together a compilation of our favorite pants, to either help you find the pair you’ve been looking for, or give you something to do while you’re pretending to work on a friday afternoon.
Don’t forget, today is the last day to save 15 % on GGS apparel. Just use the promo code GGSTRONG and pick up a pair of GGS sweatpants. Little tip: the pants are supah dupah long, so if you’re a shorty like a few of us are, go for the kids version!
Girls Gone Strong Favorite Workout Pants
I am completely obsessed with Lululemon.
On any given day I will be wearing head to toe Lulu-literally, from my headband to my socks. Even my gym bag, yoga mat and carrying strap are from Lulu! (I told you-OBSESSED).
My favorite pair of workout pants is the wunder under crops. I’m just under 5’2”, so the crop really fits more like an ankle pant for me, but I appreciate that they make a version that won’t bunch up a ton at the bottom. Although Lululemon will hem your pants for free, I never want to go without a pair of my precious leggings while they’re being altered.
I also love what they do for my butt and legs. I always feel my best-no matter how bloated and puffy I might be that day. I have at least 10 pairs of wunder under crops, all in different colors and patterns. I will say that you want to be careful with which colors you buy because some are not as forgiving as others. For that reason, I suggest always going into the store to try them on-but once you find a pair you like, get two! Lululemon changes their inventory so often, so the chances are that unless it’s a basic black legging, you won’t see it again after a few weeks.
I wear my crops with flats, a cute tee and a denim jacket just as much as I do with a coordinating Lulu tank at the gym. They are super versatile and High quality. And even though they are a bit pricey, you get a discount if you’re a trainer (yay!).
I’m not gonna lie – I do not like shopping for clothes. It’s something I do on an as needed basis and not for enjoyment. In fact, my favorite workout pants are over 10 years old; I think they’re 12 years old, actually. Yep, I’ve had my favorite pair of workouts pants since high school, and they’re still in one piece. These Adidas pants have been with me through some brutal workouts and a lot of personal records. I love these pants because they don’t restrict my movement so I can squat and deadlift without having to worry about blowing a hole in my pants.
I wore them in my most recent squat workout where I did a brutal set of 30 reps.
And I can’t forget having these on when I set a huge personal record of deadlifting 300 pounds for a triple.
Hopefully I’ll continue to set personal records with these pants for another 12 years.
I love these workout pants because they are super flattering for the booty. They are tight enough that they don’t move around and loose enough that they don’t squeeze your waist in an unflattering way. I generally like a foldover yoga pant look, but since I got these several months ago, I find myself wearing them way more often than my other pants. I don’t love the way they look with just a sports bra (too high-waisted) but they look great with a mid-length to long tank top.
