Super cute booty shorts for squatting and lifting.
Review: FLEO knows the struggles of women who lift! They know you want shorts that won’t peek through, won’t ride up, won’t show any butt cleave or crack in the back as you lift and squat, and won’t restrict your range of motion.
FLEO thought of everything when they made these squat shorts.
The short inseam with wide waistband, keeps your bum covered yet the 2.5-inch inseam is short enough so they do not restrict bending and squatting. Plus they come is a gazillion of the cutest fabrics in the world.
Did I mention they are comfortable enough to sleep in too? Grab a pair of these wonderful shorts, you won’t be disappointed!
Awesome fun prints.
3-inch thick ample coverage waistband.
Inner liner keeps these shorts snug and peek proof.

Quick Buying Guide to Shorts for Squatting & Deadlifting
Range of Movement
Shorts with no stretch limit and restrict movement. Not cool when you are squatting.
Look for shorts that have at least a little stretch to them so you are comfortable and so you don’t end up busting a seam when you squat deep.
Men’s Squatting Shorts vs Women’s Squatting Shorts
There are some differences between women’s squatting and lifting shorts and those made for men.
Generally, women’s shorts have a shorter inseam and are snugger. Some women’s shorts are so snug they are called booty shorts, because they conform to the shape of the booty.
They happen to be really comfortable to lift in, so it’s common to see this style short at the gym.
I separated my list of the best squatting shorts with one list for men’s shorts and one list for women’s shorts.
I like the pockets. They are handy. But they can also add bulk and can weigh the shorts down or throw off the stylish sexy silhouette they create.
You have to decide what works for you.
I will say this: If you do decide to get shorts with pockets – make sure they are zippered pockets so your stuff does not fall out.
Long baggy baller style shorts may be comfortable, but they are a no go on squat day.
The long fabric catches on your knees, possibly causing a wardrobe malfunction. Worse than that, they can get in the way and be a distraction. Not something you want when you are dealing with a heavy barbell.
Look for shorts that sit above the knee.
While you are at it, consider this – you work hard at the gym, so why not show off that hard work with shorts that are a little shorter?
Show some thigh, it won’t kill you, and it just might improve your squat performance.
