What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “Lululemon”? Athleisure, probably. Women who exercise but somehow don’t seem to sweat, maybe. Workouts like yoga, cycling or running that feature exactly zero clanging weight stacks, definitely.

We’re going to let you in on a little secret — despite the genteel name, Lululemon also makes great weightlifting gear under the name “Cross Challenger.” And right now, both the shorts and the joggers are discounted.

We’ve extolled the virtues of the brand’s shorts before, but here they’ve reinforced them with extra fabric panels for deadlifts and the like, giving both you and your gear an added layer of protection. On par with the rest of their lineup, there are strategic pockets for essentials like keys or your music player of choice if you’re not into the DJ remixes at your gym.

But if you’d rather stick with Lululemon’s classic gear, you can find running- and yoga-friendly shorts and joggers over in their We Made Too Much section.
