With Pound, the more attitude, the better.
Imagine this -- instead of doing your usual cardio and sculpting combination class, you're working weighted drumsticks and a ton of attitude. That's the idea behind Pound, which is an exercise routine in which you channel your inner rock star while performing typical strength training and cardio moves to work up a sweat. If you've already signed up for a class, prep yourself by wearing the right type of clothes and dressing the part.
You'll definitely need to wear a supportive sports bra when you head to a Pound class, so look for one that allows a full range of motion while still helping you feel comfortable. As for tops, the Pound blog does recommend making a loose tank out of an old T-shirt or searching for vintage concert T-shirts. You'll sweat up a storm, so performance fabrics can help you stay dry as you rock out to the latest hits.
According to the Pound blog, you can never own too many pairs of black workout leggings. Capri-length can help keep you cool, but you can wear any bottoms that help you feel comfortable and allow you to jump and stretch. Look for pants that contain a percentage of Lycra or Spandex so you can move around easily.
Plan on wearing supportive shoes when you attend a Pound class. You'll need support for jumping and making lateral movements, which are both part of the class repertoire. Cross-trainers are likely your best bet, since cardio-specific shoes might not have the side-to-side support you need. Think of Pound as a mixed class and wear the same type of shoes that you'd wear to a sculpting and cardio class. Though some of the moves are akin to Pilates, you shouldn't go barefoot.
Above all, go for flare and personality when you get dressed for Pound. The high-energy workout is based on drumsticks, loud music and a party atmosphere, so it doesn't matter what you wear as long as you're comfy. From loud. graphic tanks to your usual workouts duds, the only pieces you should avoid are restrictive tops and bottoms that limit your movement and personality on the gym floor.
