    What is a stringer vest?

    A stringer vest or stringer tank is a classic piece of bodybuilding clothing. It gets its name from the thin straps, alike to string, that run over the shoulders and have either a Y or T design that emphasises both the arm, back and shoulder muscles.

    The stringer has become a staple in the bodybuilding community as its design offers both functionality and physique accentuations. The thin racerback straps allow lifters full freedom of movement whilst showing off the muscles they work so hard for.

    Why do people wear stringer vests?

    The gym stringer is designed to complement the physique whilst maximising hard work. It’s form fitting design and racerback straps allows you to show off the muscles that they work for. Whilst also allowing you to see that muscles such as the shoulders, arms and back are being worked correctly as you train.

    The stringer vests design offers full freedom of movement for every curl, press and row, as you’re not restricted by tight clothing around muscles and joints. While sweat-wicking materials draw moisture away from the skin and the drop armhole allows for circulation of air, helping to keep you cool throughout your workout.

    How to style gym stringers

    Stringer tank tops can be worn with either joggers or Shorts, it all depends on what you feel most comfortable and confident in. You could even cover it with one of our pump cover for a big reveal of your muscles when you’re warmed up.
