The best workout shirts should be able to do many things while keeping you feeling cool, and most importantly, smelling tolerable. They also must be sturdy and breathable at the same time and keep you looking sharp while catching up your breath doing that 80kg bench press. Sure, those old cotton tees from your alma mater still look fine but they aren’t suitable for a serious workout. Whether you are into tee, tank or long sleeves, we bring you the 10 performance-enhancing all-stars.
