Hey guys! I had another great strength training workout this morning! I did the same routine I shared with you a few posts ago, but this time I subbed the squats for box jumps. And today, I added something fun to my workout. New workout clothes! I rarely buy new workout clothes, especially coordinating ones. I just wear race shirts with everything. 🙂 Soooo I was really excited to get some new workout clothes from Target® C9. I got to pick what items I wanted and I always get very neutral items on the rare occasions I buy workout clothes, so I decided to go out on a limb with some brighter colors and patterns since they were free!
I got the C9 Run Short and two C9 Sporty Layered Run Tanks.
I LOVE all three. The shorts are a perfect length and have a nice wide waistband. They also have an interior key pocket, which is good. They are a little snug in my thighs, but that is a me problem. I tend to size up in shorts so give my quads a little breathing room. But, these are just a teensy bit snug so I decided to keep the size I had, and have actually been happy with them. The interior lining fits better and they just look like they fit appropriately vs. some of my bigger sized shorts.
I have been really impressed with the top too. The built-in bra actually holds me in! I never have that luck with tanks with built-ins. I don’t think I’d run any real distance in it since there was a little bouncing, but I did three miles in (running to and from the gym for weight training) and it was fine for that distance.
My favorite part is the back! Look how cute! (Do you know how hard it is to take a picture of the back of yourself? 🙂 )
This one isn’t as bright, but it matches the shorts perfectly, which makes me feel oh-so-put-together. 🙂
I really like these tops for weight training. I hate wearing sleeves when weight training and these are nice because they aren’t tight, but they still are fitted and flattering. And, I can do all my movements easily. Does anyone else feel restricted in sleeves when lifting weights? Gah! it drives me crazy. I wanna try this Class FitSugar Target® Shoulders workout the next time I do strength training. Or, I guess I could even do it at home! (I just tend to workout so much harder at the gym vs. at-home workouts. Anyone else?) Side note: how cute are her shoes? I feel like I need them to go with the outfit since I have the shorts and top. 😉
Another cute back design!
I really am impressed with this workout gear. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from a Target® line. Bottom line: would I spend my own money on these items? Absolutely.
Do your workout outfits match? Do you care if they do? I’m kind of amazed by how much I liked feeling like my workout outfit was cute. hahaha. And, I’ve gotten compliments the three times I’ve worn the tops (so far!). I wanna do weight training more just so I can wear these more. I think they’d be great for Pure Barre or a bootcamp type class too.
