What should you wear to train for a full day of sweat, mud and fun. Let’s start at the bottom part. And you are in luck as Fabletics have made the legging their speciality, so will have to covered (literally) when it comes to event day training.
Let’s Talk Legging Fabrics
The PowerHold legging fabric gives you the ultimate support and hold while flattering your silhouette – a good win-win as we all like to look our best on pictures, even covered in mud. This fabric is also one of the most compressive Fabletics have, so while supporting you during any kind of activity, it will also help you to recover in the best possible way.
The Motion365 legging, support and breathability are the key words for this fabric, it is super versatile and will be good for any kind of Tough Mudder activity or workout you will be doing. It is a revolutionary fabric that is silky smooth and super resilient, so no need to worry, your legging will not be damaged no matter how low you squat. You will be also very happy to know that this fabric helps to regulate the temperature of your body, so winter or summer, this one has got you covered. And as the name suggests, it enables you to have a full range of motion thank to its resilient nylon, which will also wick away that sweat.
Working out bottoms aren’t exclusively leggings, though men’s base layer tights are also available. For men when training shorts, base layer pants and joggers that move with your body and are breathable are must haves. Fabletics offers all-rounders for men, that are performance ready and engineered for every occasion and activity, so even the most extreme movements will feel easy.

Incorporating yoga and getting in a good stretch is really important for you overall training, so good decision to incorporate it into your workouts. For this kind of workout you will need to wear an outfit that is comfortable, zip free and stretches along with your body.
The Workout: Running

If the running life picked you you’ll know that what you wear can really affect much you enjoy the run, we’ve all experienced having to constantly adjust bottoms and ill fitting tops that begin to chafe.
