Assert Short 4 5 9 10
The best short for CrossFit! The 4 way stretch is amazing. Great for any WOD. Made the same way brands like Reebok, Rogue, Hylete make their "fight" shorts with the longboardish style. The pocket is placed in an extremely smart way so that the barbell will never hit your device. I do all kinds of workouts with my iPhone 5s in the side pocket and it never gets hit or damaged. I can do burpees, run, double unders, box jumps, and any lifts/oly moves and my stuff is kept intact. You can't hold a lot in these shorts and they are linerless but I really love them as it gives you a clean tapered look and you can wear whatever liner you like! October 11, 2014
Great Training shorts These are some of the best training shorts I have owned. They don't feel thin or fragile and they weigh enough to feel sturdy. September 25, 2014
Great shorts!!! Almost perfect. I love the slit in the leg, and the stretchy undercarriage panel! However the material is a bit thin, and having more than 1 pocket would be awesome. My recommendation is: take the Core Short and add the stretchy undercarriage panel, and the leg slit of the Assert Short. (and keep the thicker material composition, thick waistband, and pockets; of the Core short) The "Core-Assert" Short, if you will.. perfect for Crossfit, Running, Yoga, etc. September 2, 2014
A mistake I ordered these based on a set of positive reviews and thought they would be useful. Unfortunately when they arrived, I got a lot closer look than what I saw on the website. The style I ordered was called "crooked stripe", but what arrived looked like a zebra pattern. No self respecting dude would show up at the gym in these. August 6, 2014
awesome - but tear easy!!!! i have 2 pairs of these shorts - they are great, but i got a small hole in the seat of these after i did some sit ups on a trail surface. i've never had this problem before with my other shorts, so be careful about this when you wear these shorts. July 30, 2014
If only they had cool colors! These shorts are nothing shy of amazing. They are extremely comfortable and perfect for virtually any sport or activity. As a CrossFit athlete/coach they only leave ONE THING to be desired...and that is that they don't come in any fun colors! Come on Lulu! The women's shorts come in more colors and patterns than I can count and then you have the Assert short: black, grey, green, black, black/grey, black again... I love your products but for the love of sweet baby jesus will you please give us some more bold color and design options?!?! July 1, 2014
These brought the BF to Lulu My bf and I do Crossfit together so he's seen Lulu around but never been in a store himself. I finally dragged him along one day and got him to try these on and he can't stop talking about how great they are. He has similar shorts by Reebok and some CF-specific bands but loves these best - the length is perfect, split is just right, material is durable and stretchy, and the fit at the waist is just the right place and snugness to stay put without being uncomfortable. He went back and got a second pair and I'll be stocking up with even more if Lulu brings out more colors. For reference, he's about 5'7" and lean, and the size small fits him well. May 17, 2014
Just Right As a fitness trainer who is training for a marathon, I loved the fir of these shorts. Great for training, running and just a casual wear out in the city. Big Lulu FAN. April 12, 2014
Incredible! As a CrossFitter I'm very particular on how my activewear fits. Some shorts have been too long and catch the knees, others designed for lifting show off way too much man-thigh with the side splits. These are PERFECT for functional fitness needs! March 26, 2014
