Until recently I never thought of another material but cotton for my fitness outfits. To be honest, I never went running neither outside nor at the gym. Being never overweight, I didn’t need to do a lot of cardio, so almost never sweat.
Unfortunately, that changed last year when I started gaining some weight so it was time to hit the treadmill. For the first time, I saw myself sweating like crazy, and started feeling very uncomfortable wearing my cotton tops.
That’s when I realized that cotton wasn’t such a good idea, and in fact, it was better to choose polyester for running and for activities that require a lot of physical effort.
The reasons why I will explain to you in this article.
