Yeah...nothing else to do =/. It's like my only hobby. And I like reading, so I just listen to audiobooks while I work out. I have no reason to leave the gym.

But yeah, I got some light DBs + heavy bands for deltoid work at home. I've always been insecure about those because I can't get those 3d cannon ball delts. But at my height, probably not a good idea to build those up. They surprisingly require very little weight. I had a high school buddy who did have those 3D delts, all he did was lateral raises with 10 pounders while watching TV everyday. I talked with a janitor at work, he would do dips/pullups in the park since he couldn't afford a gym. I felt bad, that I gave him my 45 pounder adjustables and my bench when I ditched the city.

I bought a pack of these to try and they look disappointing compared to the 32 Cool ones of years past.

I wear the 32 ones in black as undershirts on a daily basis, working out etc. No smell after 100's of wash and dry cycles.

And they keep their shape.

These don't look like they will last nearly as well and i won't put them in the dryer.

Still good for the price though

what i found is no matter what you wear, if you sweat, it will smell after a while. BUT any wicking clothing gets worst. the only way to get rid of that smell is to use Oxyclean.

or if you use deodorant, white will turn yellow

that's why i usually replace the t-shirts every year and use them for car cleaning or cleaning window in the summer.

This is my first post ever on redflagdeals, although I browse almost everyday for years. Just to say RFD is getting funnier every year, with threads like this that talks about the minute details of sweating with cotton vs poly, the danger of plastic/fabric softener, and that guy with his life story of overbuilding and working on his 3D deltoids, all just from a simple posting of a sale of gym shirts at costco. AMAZING. couldn't resist to finally post my first post.

I meant this is my first real comment post, I had 8 posts before for RFD contests, and selling stuffs.

the yellowing is not from deodorant but from using antiperspirant ,
switch to an actual deodorant and the yellowing will be gone.

also wash whites in hot water, not cold that should also help with any smells.

I wear dry fit (moisture wicking) clothes all time time when I work out and I get a good sweat

I use to get home, get a spoon of OxyClean and hot water to soak the clothes.

It works, but gets expensive.

What I found worked best is vinegar.

Use two tablespoons of plain vinegar and two litres of cold water. Soak your clothes in the vinegar for no more than a few hours, then wash

What causes the smell is bacteria feasting off your sweat and defecating. The vinegar will kill the bacteria

I wear them to play badminton too and after a few hours, the shirt is soaking wet.

The shirt doesn't smell, but if I put it through the wash and then the dryer, it will stink.

The only way for me to get rid of the odour is to soak it in a solution of water and vinegar.

these specific ones? i cant speak for these, but try gym shark, when they go on sale, its like 10-20 bucks each, more expensive than this, by a lot, but the quality is good. i never had a problem with sweating in them, after each game, i sit down for like 2 mins, and im completely dry. well aside from the sweat that are still constantly coming out of my pores lol.

I will pick up a packaged if I can get to Costco before Sunday.
if u do buy these, like i said, get black, white is way too see thru. i also have 1 nike 1 under armour, they are not bad, but not as good as my gymsharks, esp the nike one, but then each of them are made differently, with different compositions of materials at different spots, so it really depends on the design.

I don't think any of these shirts are supposed to be worn more than once without washing even if they're synthetic or antimicrobially treated. Just wash them immediately after use and you'll be fine.

Those saying moisture wicking shirts keep you drier and those saying that they make you more smelly are both correct. In the same way essential oil diffusers are vaporizing lavender into the air, quick dry shirts are vaporizing your sweat into the air. This makes it easier to smell your sweat, which is now suspended as a cloud in the air. The cotton would be less smelly because it's holding on to the sweat instead of vaporizing it.

I think you're thinking too much into it.

Comment upvoted! That 3-D delts guy is f***ing crazy. I heard he does steroids...Like the Anadrol/Oxymetholone kind...cuz he's f***ing crazy. He definitely does them because he's always flexing his street pharmacy skills despite not having an education (in which he overcompensate by flaunting Bachelors in BroScience (Hons) BBSc), something about stereoisomeric inversions or whatever. Dude needs a job and should stop spending money he doesn't have on shit he doesn't need. Seems to know a lot about money despite not having it...Also heard he's homeless and uses the gym as shelter and a place to shower...

And...now he's #roidraging that the $17.99 www.costco.ca inventory is gone...?

Edit: Most of the above is a joke...

Can't stand when the neck loses shape. The dreaded "bacon neck".
