Men’s Sleeveless Tops for Hot Weather
Training in hot weather can seem daunting at first. It is important that you keep hot weather safety in mind when preparing for your run or workout. One of the easiest and most important ways to stay cool and safe during your outdoor summer run is to wear lightweight, sleeveless tops so your chances of overheating are minimized.
Due to increased heat, it is quite common for runners and other athletes to sweat more profusely during the summer months. This makes it all the more important to find sleeveless tops made with moisture-wicking material, meaning that the shirt’s fabric actively prevents sweat buildup, keeping you comfortable and cool.
Several of our men’s sleeveless tops come with this useful feature.
The Aero Tank
This crewneck tank top is perfect for your summer run. It helps you stay cool with a mesh back panel for increased breathability and ventilation. An inner moisture-wicking main panel helps pull sweat away from the skin, while a moisture-wicking outer panel helps disperse surface moisture. The effect is that sweat buildup is minimized, keeping you as cool as possible.
The sleek and practical cut of the tank top is great for summer weather, so you can run in both comfort and style. This top also has reflective strips of fabric on the back and shoulders, making it effective for running in low light as well as in the daytime.
The Motion Tank
This muscle tank top is great for gym, studio, and outdoor summer workout sessions. The style of this top is designed specifically to help maximize your range of motion while still providing full coverage in any position. The longer length, soft neckline, and forward shoulder seams achieve this effect.
The material is also durable and built to withstand the wear and tear of gym sessions. The fabric has moisture-wicking properties as well, minimizing sweat buildup so you can stay cool and comfortable. Sizes range from small to XXL, so there is a relaxed-fit tank top for every athlete.
The Light Speed Singlet
This workout tank top is slim fit by nature and so lightweight you’ll hardly notice it’s there. The X-LITE fabric, combined with the top’s minimalist design, allows you to focus fully on your run without any distractions. The fabric also contains quick-drying properties, pulling sweat away from your body to keep you cool and dry.
Within the material is a high-filament polyester yarn that blocks UV rays from the sun, better protecting your skin. There are also reflective strips of fabric on the top that provide 360 degrees of full visibility so you can run safely in low-light conditions. Fun colors and graphic tank top options make this top stylish and bold.
Safety Tips for Running in Hot Weather
Running in hot weather is sometimes unavoidable and often the only way to keep up your training regimen in the summer. It is important that if you find yourself exercising in high temperatures, you prepare accordingly and listen to your body for potential warning signs.
Dehydration is one of the most common and dangerous issues runners encounter when running in the heat. It is important to drink lots of water or sports drinks high in electrolytes after your run to replenish the water weight and nutrients you’ve lost through sweat. If you’re going on a long run or workout, you should bring water to take sips along the way so you don’t reach a dangerous water deficit.
Wear High SPF Sunscreen
Even if it is a cloudy day, UV rays can still penetrate and do damage to your skin. To protect yourself against the sun, apply sunscreen with a high SPF to all visible body parts.
This includes your legs, which are often forgotten but can be easily burned. It is also beneficial to find a sunscreen that is waterproof and offers broad-spectrum protection, if possible, for more complete coverage.
Wear Lightweight, Breathable Clothing
A great way to make running in the sun more enjoyable is to wear activewear that is lightweight, breathable, sweat-wicking, and either short-sleeved or sleeveless. The less material dragging you down, the better.
Never let the summer temperatures stand in your way with our collection of men’s gym tank tops. They provide perfect options for your summer running needs. The Motion Tank, the Light Speed and Light Speed Tech Singlets, and the Aero Tank are all made with lightweight material that is sure to enable you to reach your full potential out in the heat.
Listen to Your Body
While it can be tempting to push through any discomfort and run in the heat as you would in moderate weather, it is extremely important that you listen to your body and pull back or stop if necessary. Safety is key, and your summer run should be enjoyable and beneficial, not potentially harmful.
If you experience any of these symptoms, take a break, find shade to get out of the sun, drink some water if possible, and evaluate if it is wise to continue:
- Feeling faint/lightheaded
- Feeling dizzy
- Feeling disoriented
- Cold and clammy skin
- No longer sweating
It is important to look for these signs of struggle in any running or workout partners you may have. If you notice any of these symptoms in them, advise them to drink water and take a break before deciding if they are okay to continue.
Tank Tops With UV Protection
A unique feature of some of 2XU’s men’s tank tops is built-in protection against UV rays. UV rays are especially powerful in the summertime when the sun is out and temperatures are hotter. Wearing shirts with UV protection can benefit your skin and help keep it safe from damage.
The Light Speed and the Light Speed Tech Singlets are made with high-filament polyester yarn that works to block out UV rays and keep them from penetrating the fabric. The Motion Tank is also a great option to achieve some UV protection or as an undershirt.
