Lifters are more discerning about their gym clothes than ever before. Here's what you keep picking first out of the closet—or even right out of the drier!



Clothing Item of the Year: Bodybuilding.com High Waisted Legging

These gym tights are an obvious standout among the Bodybuilding.com Collection and are here to stay. We aimed to create leggings that tick all the boxes for performance and style, so you can get rid of that drawerful of ill-fitting tights you hate to wear and just stock up on one thing that works.

This staple is simple but made with everything you need: durable fabric with four-way stretch, pockets for your phone and keys, a just-right fit, and a high waist that keeps you covered during squats.
