Thanks to the internet catching on to a 24-year-old workout phenomenon, we all now know what Joanna Rohrback's Prancersizing is. For the uninitiated, it's officially "a springy, rhythmic way of moving forward, similar to a horse's gait and ideally induced by elation." Everything about Rohrback and her five minute Prancersize tutorial (after the jump) is absolutely perfect—except the whole camel toe (CT) situation. So how to avoid when you're practicing your own prance?
First and most obvious, white spandex are generally not advisable. Rohrback gets it right above on the cover of her book (published in 1994) with black leggings, but CT can plague even darkly hued pants. The second and most important feature of CT-less spandex bottoms is a gusset. Just a little extra, diamond-shaped patch of material that makes a whole world of difference (as seen on these menswear jeans if you need a visual). Below, find five yoga pants and running shorts that are complete with crotch gussets and commence Prancersizing in peace.
