For a bodybuilder, the summer is your opportunity to show off all the hard work you put into your body during the rest of the year. It’s tank tops and shorts season after all, and there don’t seem to be as many competitions in the summer as there are in the winter and spring.
After my competition in May, I’ve spent the past few months making improvements, and it really has been a lot of fun prancing around in sports bras and shorts and showing off a little, instead of dieting and being a cranky hermit!
I got the opportunity to work with Danskin Now and try out some things from their line, exclusively at Walmart. Not only are all of the pieces I tried out stylish and comfortable, but they are incredibly affordable too! One of my favorites was the sports bra below, which I now have in two colors. It has removable pads, adjustable straps, and a breezy mesh back. I was extremely impressed with the fit and durability of this piece, and you can’t beat the under $10 price point. Get it at Walmart here: Seamless Mesh Back Cami Bra.
For this beautiful summer afternoon hanging out with my mom (and her cats), I paired the bra with these fun polka dot shorts. The navy and neon color scheme is fun, but still manages to serve as a neutral, and the shorts are lined – perfect for running. Get them here: Woven Running Shorts with Built-in Liner.
Like I said, this summer has been about showing off my physique a little! Below I’m wearing the Danskin Now mesh back sports bra in another color way. Pairing them with a neutral pair of workout crops made the minty color pop!
Showing off wasn’t all I did this summer, though. There are lots of improvements I want to make to my physique before competing again (probably in the early spring), so I’ve still been dedicated to my gym routine.
I wore the Danskin Now Fitspiration Light Impact Sports Bra for an arm training session and the bright colors and motivational saying on it kept me going even though I wanted to cut the workout short and sit by the pool. This bra comes in several colorways, each featuring a different “fitspiration” quote. Love this one!
It was fun trying out the Danskin Now line and seeing how it fits into my routine as a bodybuilder, and in fact I liked the pieces I chose so much that I’ll be ordering more. If you purchase only one piece from the line, make it the mesh back sports bra. It’s so well made and comes in great colors!
