Never thought I would say this: I missed the gym. I missed forcing myself out of bed and putting on the best workout shorts (more of this in a bit), a simple tank, and my trusty Nike Revolution 5 sneakers. I missed walking two blocks and entering a climate-controlled environment with every conceivable piece of workout equipment at my disposal. I even missed the awkward stares from passersby as I sang out loud to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy while running on a treadmill. Needless to say, my routine was insurmountably disrupted last year. Now I have to wrestle with a gut and jackets that I just can’t button.
Thankfully, my local gym is back in business, and so is my favorite pair of workout shorts. For me, they are a cut above the rest because of just that, the cut. I like ’em really short. Magnum P.I. short. And there’s a built-in liner to, you know, keep everything in check. The dark color, a shade of deep purple with white piping, also makes me feel good about myself, giving me that extra boost of confidence to run that extra mile, or squat that extra squat. Most important is the material: Nylon with a drawstring and elastic waistband, because my gut.
All this, however, shouldn’t apply to you. I tend to like cardio-based exercises and, as a result, sweat a lot, which is why the moisture-wicking properties of nylon works for me. Polyester, polypropylene, and micromodal also do the trick. But if you’re a bench-press dude and prefer natural fibers, jersey or cotton mesh will be more to your liking. Also, the length of what characterizes the best workout shorts is completely at your discretion. Inseams usually run from four inches to 10, so you can decide how much leg you want to show. Lastly, built-in brief liners and compression inserts aren’t for everyone. Some dudes like to let it hang, and that’s OK.
When it comes to workout shorts for the gym, there are options aplenty. And to help you narrow down your search, we compiled a selection so you can get back to your routine. Now all you have to do is purchase the one that works best for you and commit to actually going.
