Old school bodybuilding is back!?

no, wait...

it never left.

This isn't just a new drop of bodybuilding clothes. This is history, redefined.

Remember your first heaped pre-workout?
Or maybe the first time you stepped foot in a true, authentic bodybuilding gym?... sure you do.

There's no better feeling than old school, which is why the new Gymshark Luxe Legacy collection builds on the original silhouette from 2015, resurrecting an old school bodybuilding icon for the new decade.

An improved material blend, tweaked aesthetics and fresh new colour-ways complete the return of the Gymshark Luxe Legacy tracksuit, bringing you bodybuilding clothes in their most veracious form.

It's time for a quick history lesson. Class in session...

Gymshark began back in 2012 with an idea, but has grown into so much more. With the help of the Luxe Tracksuit, the legendary Legacy collection and of course you guys; Gymshark is what it is today, a family uniting the conditioning community.

When we think about the word bodybuilding, we instantly think about Arnold Schwarzenegger, the old school gyms, heavy plates clanging on grubby bars, and those low cut bodybuilding stringers. Bodybuilding has been around since the late 19th century and is still a go to training method for many gym goers today. 

Bodybuilding is the main foundation on which Gymshark was founded, we don’t want to lose sight of that. When you're in the gym, we know how important it is to train like your favourite athlete and look good at the same time. You’re in the gym for a reason. That’s where the legacy collection comes in, a way to incorporate new styles and tech with that old school bodybuilding gym wear feel.

We know you don’t want to lose touch with the greats, and neither do we. Some classics are timeless, the poses and movements for one. I mean if it’s good enough for Ronnie Coleman, it's good enough for me, right? So, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it? Wrong.

Classics are classics for a reason, but developments in science and nutrition mean that we can evolve with the times. Cutting can be monitored more effectively, the internet means that all sorts of forums and advice are at your fingertips 24/7, the time to grow is now. If the sport can evolve, then so should the equipment you use with it.
