    Depends on where you are working out. DOH! Outside in a colder climate, sweats might be appropriate, but, generally, less is better.

    Staying cool has a significant impact on exercise performance. In warm environments, the less of you that's covered up the better. It's a common sense thing.

    You see a guy at the gym wearing a hat? You can tell him I said he's an idiot.

    You see a guy in a rubber suit at the gym? You can tell him I said he's a moron. The only that gets you is too hot, and dehydrated. Stupid folks do stupid things.

    Did you ponder this at all before asking the question? Have you never been athletic?

    neither. i wear sweat shorts. those long "lounge" shorts. mesh shorts slip on the benches and ride up, but sweat pants make ur legs feel like their in an oven. in thus the lounge shorts prevail.

    actually that is the reason i asked. All the gym courses i took basically required you to show up to get a good grade. I have always been overweight. but i see what you mean by using logic. I have actually seen people run around in sweat pants at the park and at the gym. sorry if the question seemed naive

    i come from the thought that if you aren't sweating you aren't working hard. I usually choose shorts for lifting and sweats or track pants if I'm doing cardio.
    Lifting I want to see the muscles. Cardio, I don't care but I know I'm looking to get the heart rate up and and sweat it out of me.

    Toy, I never called you 'old and out of shape' and you were the one that proved my point by admitting you wear sweats and are over 50.

    I have some "lounge shorts" but they get pretty smelly after they have been worn (especially once they go in the gym bag with the socks i wore) so I don't wear them much.

    I have some tracksuit trousers which I used to wear more but I was doing squats and nearly split them! I quickly changed into my spare pair of shorts.

    Overall I think those shorts with the mesh "underpant lining" are the best for running, weights or even swimming even if they maybe don't look as good as some of the other options.
