Do-it-all tees to get you through any exercise.

When it comes to finding the right workout shirt, our ratty college tees won’t do. The best workout shirts for men are usually made from synthetic fabrics like polyester and nylon that feature BO and sweat-fighting technology to keep you dry and fresh during the most grueling exercises. Some have spandex or elastane to provide stretch for workouts that require a large range of motion (like, say burpees). And of course, all of them look and feel amazing.

But with the activewear and athleisure boon of the past five years, finding the right workout shirt in a saturated market can feel overwhelming. That’s why we enlisted the help of Men’s Health’s trainers and fitness experts, and tried over 100 workout shirts (!!!) in the past two years to find the best workout shirts for men. Whether you’re looking for a shirt for your long runs or a do-it all tees for your HIIT sessions, these men’s workout shirts have you covered (literally).

Plus, it’s infused with gold (yes, really) to fend off stink. Taking it outside? It also has a UPF50+ exterior for adequate sun protection. The Reign’s suite of features made it an easy cinch for our Men’s Health Fitness Awards.
