Unfortunately, I saw something about exercising in The Battalion today. It piqued my curiosity and I read it. It seemed like a fat and ugly woman�s ranting split up in two articles. I figured I would reply:
It�s bad enough having dress to walk outside, now you tell me that diced up tank tops isn�t adequate? Or were you just guy-bashing? What should a person to wear to the gym? Shoes and underwear for safety and, for some women, a bra for support. It�s been nearly 1600 years since St. Augustine preached hatred of the body. Some of us still ignore that crap. Going to the gym implies a love of life here on earth and a desire to live it healthily. You want conservative fashion at the gym? Wear a head scarf. Want proper fashion at the gym? Eat right and exercise more. Then, you can wear a healthy body. You can guess what I think about your gym fashion advice. 100% cotton for running? Did you just make all this up, then do a quick search of a web site to find dri-fit clothing and pilates? An interesting aspect of weightlifting is to watching the muscle you are exercising and ensure you are performing the exercise properly. If you go to the gym to exercise, then wear something comfortable (long socks included). As for the rest, wear the dri-fit clothing and hide that body.
