You can wear anything to exercise with self harm scars, they are a part of you and your story. It all depends on how confident you are with them. You could try and cover them up or just wear what you like. I personally wear jogging bottoms because I do not like mine showing on the tops of my legs. It is all personal preference.
A long sleeve clothes and a black legging. I think it will hide the self harm scars better and you dont have to feel anxiety
You can wear sweats bands if it's on your wrist, sheer, or very thin long sleeves, and for your pants if it's on your legs there is training pants, that are very thin and are stretchy enough for you to work out in
A long sleeved training shirt? I'm sure you figure it out. On the other hand, don't be ashamed for it. The scars tells us that our past was real, learn from it and don't do it again.
You should wear whatever you are comfortable wearing when you exercise. If you feel best with long sleeves, wear those. Be mindful of how comfortable you will be, mentally and physically. Also be mindful of how comfortable you will be when you are working out, if you get hot easily.
