Best Workout Leggings for Every Type of Exercise

The compressive, smooth shell of these Lululemon leggings supports you during high-impact workouts like running or CrossFit. This pair is secured via the waistband's secret drawcord. One tester said, "When I bent my body and moved around, the leggings stayed put."

These cheap Colorfulkoala leggings outperformed quadruple-priced ones. This is ideal for low-impact workouts because to its soft polyester/spandex compression. The Lab-stretched fabric kept its shape and was perfect workout after workout, but it had poorer moisture management scores and wasn't opaque.

Online reviews praise the two large side pockets and comfortable fit for workout and lounging.

Gymshark's Adapt series features seamless leggings with a stay-put high-waisted ribbed waistband for lifting.
