Born Tough. Product Review

Today I want to talk about Born Tough, fitness apparel & accessories brand, manufacturer and online retailer based in the US. But they also have stores in the UK and Australia so, no matter where you live.

Shipping is the fastest I’ve seen so far. I placed my order on Wednesday and I received it on Friday! I don’t think it can be done faster. So, the first positive aspect to keep in mind … nobody likes to wait for weeks to receive an order, right?

I got 2 items:

Sleeveless shirt

Great quality fabrics, they fit like a second skin. Design is both, minimalistic and refined. They don´t look like other gaudy fitness apparel that makes you stand out like a neon light and makes you feel embarrassing. You could wear these clothes in your day to day and nobody would notice that they are training clothes. But they are, and extremely comfortable when it comes to sweating. 

Sizing and fabric information can be found on the product description page.

The clothes are very affordable. Sleeveless shirts from 18£, long sleeve shirts from 23£, and you will also find shorts, joggers, bags and accessories at really great prices. 

Note aside: I couldn´t help myself. As soon as I say these cool plastic bags for the shirts, I thought they might have some other use. For example, put the post-workout meal inside. Has your shaker ever opened inside your backpack staining all your clothes? Problem solved! This is just a quick thought, I’m sure you will come up with multiple uses for these bags.

Now, time to show you these shirts while exercising!

From my personal point of view, Born Tough is a great option, due to the quality of its products, elegant design, and reasonable prices. Plus, these days you´ll find a discount code at the top of the website, and you´ll get 40% off. Perfect if you´re looking for Christmas presents. New Year´s Resolutions are coming, and we all love to start the year on new clothes that make us look better!

They also have another 15% Off Sale on Martials Arts & Fighter Apparel and Gear on their sister brand “Elite Sports with stores in USA ,UK, and Australia.

Lower Back

The Erector Spinae is not just one muscle, but a bundle of muscles and tendons. Paired, they run more or less vertically. It extends throughout the lumbar, thoracic and cervical regions, and lies in the groove to the side of the vertebral column.

Latissimus Dorsi

The latissimus dorsi is the larger, flat, dorsolateral muscle on the trunk, posterior to the arm, and partly covered by the trapezius on its median dorsal region.


The Deltoid muscle is the muscle forming the rounded contour of the shoulder. It is divided into three portions, anterior, lateral and posterior, with the fibers having different roles due to their orientation.


The Infraspinatus muscle is one of the four rotator cuff muscles crossing the shoulder joint and is commonly injured. It is the main external rotator of the shoulder joint.


The Biceps brachii is  actually two separate bundles of muscles (heads). The two heads of the Biceps vary in length and as a result, are called the Short and the Long Biceps heads.


The Triceps Brachii muscles  have three muscle heads: Lateral, Medial and Long head. Primarily responsible for the extension of the elbow joint. The lateral head is used for movements requiring occasional high-intensity force, while the medial fascicle enables more precise, low-force movements.

(Anterior muscles)

The Pronator teres pronates the forearm, turning the hand posteriorly. If the elbow is flexed to a right angle, then pronator teres will turn the hand so that the palm faces inferiorly. It is assisted in this action by pronator quadratus.

(Posterior muscles)

The Extensor Digitorum muscle helps in the movements of the wrists and the elbows. It extends the phalanges, then the wrist, and finally the elbow. It acts principally on the proximal phalanges. It tends to separate the fingers as it extends them.


The pectoralis major makes up the bulk of the chest muscles in the male and lies under the breast in the female.

The pectoralis minor is a thin, triangular muscle, situated at the upper part of the chest, beneath the pectoralis major. 


The Rectus Abdominis is the most superficial of the abdominal muscles. It is this muscle which forms the six-pack shape! It is a paired muscle running vertically on each side of the anterior wall of the abdomen. There are two parallel muscles, separated by a midline band of connective tissue called the linea alba.


The External Oblique is situated on the lateral and anterior parts of the abdomen. It is broad, thin, and irregularly quadrilateral. It is the largest and the most superficial (outermost) of the three flat muscles of the lateral anterior abdomen. 


The gluteal muscles are a group of three muscles which make up the buttocks: the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus. The three muscles originate from the ilium and sacrum and insert on the femur. The functions of the muscles include extension, abduction, external rotation, and internal rotation of the hip joint.

The Quadriceps Femoris is the knee extensor muscle.  As a group, the quadriceps femoris is crucial in walking, running, jumping and squatting. It´s subdivided into four separate “heads”.


A hamstring is any one of the three posterior thigh muscles in between the hip and the knee (from medial to lateral: semimembranosus, semitendinosus and biceps femoris). The hamstrings are quite susceptible to injury.

Lower Leg

The gastrocnemius and the soleus form what we know as calf. They are involved in activities such as walking, running, jumping…

The trapezius is a broad, flat and triangular muscle. The muscles on each side form a trapezoid shape. It is the most superficial of all the back muscles.
