What I Wear to Workout: Leg Day

I love looking at flat layouts so thought I would start a new series of sharing what I wear to workout, depending on the activity.

For today's post, I'm sharing what I would wear for a typical leg day.  I tend to wear leggings (over shorts) since I'm doing a lot of squats, lunges and general bending over-ness (ha).  I love wearing bright colours to the gym so these purple pants and neon orange sports bra fit the bill.  I tend to alternate snug fitting tops to bubble tops depending on how I'm feeling.

More recently, I've started wearing skate shoes for leg day as typical gym shoes--like my Nike Free 3.0's--are made to lift your heels and push your weight towards your toes.  When squatting, it's important to keep your weight in your heels and it's recommended to wear a shoe that is flat; Converse would work well, and I often see heavy lifters going bare-foot.

Lastly, pumping music is key for me and I like to switch it up between the music on my iPod and the music I stream on my phone via Soundcloud playlists I create.
