“Range of motion” is a hot topic among athletic trainers and exercise enthusiasts these days. Read any workout blog or fitness magazine and you’re likely to come across the subject. That’s because range of motion is critical to athletic performance in any sport, especially the range of motion of your shoulders.
The shoulder is a dynamic joint involved in everything from shooting baskets, to swinging a golf club or tennis racket, to throwing a fastball. That’s why anything that limits the range of motion of your shoulder will likely hamper your athletic performance, too. That includes not just the tightness of your muscles, but also your gym clothes.
A shirt that’s too tight can restrict your shoulders’ freedom of movement, and keep you from playing your best. And on Team Russell Athletic, we can’t have that. Which is why our line of mens athletic clothing includes a wide range of tank tops and muscle shirts that allow your arms to move completely unrestricted.
Both sleeveless-shirt styles have other perks, too. For one, they help you stay cool. Sleeveless shirts allow the skin on your arms to breath and sweat, which helps keep your core temperature down. And that’s important, because it means you’ll be less likely to overheat right as your game’s getting hot.
Another perk — our tank tops and muscle shirts for men don’t just keep you cool, they keep you looking cool, too. Sleeveless shirts are back in style. And while going bare-armed may be a little too casual for casual Friday at the office, it’s a super-sharp look for lifting weights, or running the floor in a pickup game.
