In celebration of the birthday of one of my 50+and fabulous friends, a few of us participated in an After Burn workout. That was 50 minutes of circuit training consisting of 12 exercise stations that we rotated through three times. Too bad the birthday girl did not warn the rest of us not to run that morning, but we made it through with smiles and cheers all the way. That is right: no excuses, no whining, no stopping, just tons of sweat. The instructor, John was smart enough to have Parliament, Gap Band, Stevie Wonder, the SOS Band, Roger Troutman and Zapp, plus a few other songs from our high school days blaring in the background. So, we could not have heard ourselves if we whined anyway.
During this workout I tested a gray Brooks Versatile EZ Racer Back Style # 220424. It is made out of 100% moisture-transfer polyester, which felt like silk. I absolutely loved how it felt against my skin. It is super lightweight, breathable, moisture wicking, semi-fitted and cute, but not clingy. It was extremely comfortable. It also kept me a bit cool which is a great thing. I sweat tons and this shirt has great wicking power. It did not get plastered to my body like some of my other shirts due during a heavy workout or run. I usually wear a small, but opted for the medium and I am glad I did so I recommend going a size up.
This shirt is very thin, almost see-through so make sure you wear something underneath it. It hits me at the top of my hips, which is long enough to cover me when I do circuit training and yoga, yet not too long to restrict my movements. The inside seams are not flat so I do wonder how it will fare on a long run, but since the material is super soft maybe it won’t chafe me. I just wish that it were a tank instead of a racer back because I generally do not wear racer back running bras. Hmm…maybe that is what I need to test out next.
All in all, I give the Brooks Versatile EZ Racer Back 4 high fives.
