    Of course, you must wear shorts that end above the knee for several reasons. The most important of which is that you wouldn't want to obscure the spectators' view of the tube socks. The other reason is that shorts below the knee can get in the way of squats.

    I lift after work, so I just leave my white undershirt on. And I wear lifting shoes for some lifts, socks for some lifts, and NB Minimuses (minimi?) if I go outside for Farmer's Carries or anything. Because if I wanted to wear my VFF's, I'd have to take off the socks.
    Dumbest innovation ever. Lets make socks that are not shaped like feet.
    I wore them briefly when it was required and started refusing even before that era ended.

    thanks,
    I'll take a second look.
    I really like the look of the 'vapor glove' but my store had none and I resist buying shoes online.

    I work out at home. Same black sweatpants that I lounge around the house in. That's all, no shirt or shoes (or socks -- sorry Rich!).

    I work out at home, so:
    Black sports bra and blue yoga capris in summer and T-shirt (whichever one I grab) and yoga pants in the winter. Tank top in the summer if I hafta go outside.

    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    You're way off base. Socks shaped like feet are far harder to put on correctly, are always bunched up and twisted awkwardly, and have to come in different sizes. Tube socks are plug and play, crew socks are installing the software from the CD-ROM before you can use your new device. I wish all my socks were tube socks.

    You must prance around on your toes all day so the socks don't have to fit your bent ankles.

    I'm just not so damn fancy that I need a sock to perfectly fit the contour of my feet. Is this really a problem for you?

    Next you're gonna make the ridiculous claim that beards don't actually add 20 lbs to your squats...

    My typical gym outfit....tank, spandex-type pant, barefoot shoe.

    FYI: Not my weight (if you can call it a weight) in the background! Part of the women's locker room, where women can lift weights without feeling intimidated by weight room. Weight rack has 1lb-10lb dumbbells.

    Only enough to not wear the dumb things.
