Lifting Clothes – Best For Lifting

lifting clothes

The clothes you wear while strength training have a big impact on your performance and success. If your lifting clothes is too loose, it will easily get caught and tangled in the barbells, pulleys, plates, clips, and other accessories that are so commonplace in a weight room. Loose clothing can also conceal your body, making it harder to see if your form is correct when lifting. This is why tighter, more formfitting, and breathable clothes are best for lifting.

For example, if you need to load or unload a top-loading washer, stand on a chair or other sturdy structure that is high enough for you to reach over the top part of the washer without having to bend forward (this puts too much pressure on your back). Then, put a piece of nonslip cupboard pad or a folded yoga mat on the edge of the washer so you can rest one forearm on it while reaching up to open and close the lid. This helps prevent the flexion of your spine when you reach for the laundry basket and keeps the weight on your arms instead of on your legs, which could cause you to lose control and possibly break something.
