i make fun of dudes that wear tight under armour to the gym.

they are the most self conscious dudes in there

if its the loose fitting stuff im cool with it.

but honestly you can go to Wal-Mart and get a hoody to work out in for like 15 bucks

as to buying an under armour shirt thats like 40 and youll look like douche

its called UNDER armour for a reason

throw a shirt over it if you get it

your shirts will still get wet man.

after you sweat enough to totally saturate the fabric it will hit your clothes....granted it will help but it wont prevent it.

also there are other types of moisture wicking materials made by other brands such as nike and adidas that are sometimes cheaper yet just as effective.

i remember a few months back i bought some nike lose fitting polyester shirts for like 15 bucks a pop and they are what i always wear to the gym.

covers you up but if feels like you are wearing nothing.

after a few washes the material has gotten really soft.

if i were you i would go with loose fitting as it would suit your purpose better.

well my understanding of under armour is you sweat, saturate the material, the air cools the sweat on your shirt, thus cooling you.

so the purpose of it is to hold moisture.

but like i said if you get a polyester shirt.

you wont need an under shirt and you wont look like a douche

:D

Honestly, ya I do wear under armor to the gym. I really can't stand that heavy annoying feeling of really wet cloth clothes- especially around the pits haha. Might look like a bit of a douche, but my gym is a tiny ****hole and it gets hot as hell in there. I guess I just like to train feeling as "light as possible". A lot of my buddies though are the opposite, sweatpants and sweatshirts even when it's 110 degrees. Whatever makes you comfortable really. If you're worried about how you look/seem you probably shouldn't be boxing- you should be worrying about much more important **** haha.

i wear UA shirts and i love them. i ****in hate those cotton shirts that stick to your skin, they get soaking wet, annoys me when i throw punches and i have to re arrenge my shirt all the time.

UA is like a 2nd layer of skin its like you work out top less, no sticking to your skin no soaking wetness, no rearrenging or anything like that. plus it cools you down or keeps you warm depending what type of their gear you buy (heat or cold gear)

i dont care if people look at me like a douche i just want something comfortable to wear and the gym at my school isnt a boxing gym its just like a normal weightroom with the weights, machines and treadmils and stuff like that

usually when i work at home with my bag or weights i wear sweatpants/shorts and any shirt or with a hoody depending if its summer or winter time.

I picked one up and I love it. I wear it under a sleeveless t-shirt but it feels a lot better than wearing a sweat soaked shirt. If people care what you are wearing when you workout (unless its totally outrageous) then they likely have a lot more to worry about than that.
