    hey guys,

    I've been doing leg workouts and the problem lately is i tend to stretch out all my good boxer briefs/trunks around the thigh and butt region so I'm considering buying jocks straps would this help me with the problem at all?

    Also, my other concern is I usually have a problem of not having enough frontal room with most active briefs so i was wondering if jock straps were built the same or tend to provide more of a roomy frontal pouch.

    Everytime I wear a jockstrap I get horny and become distracted, and keep wanting to check out my ass in a mirror. If you can get over that it seems like it would be a good option. Even better, why not just wear nothing underneath gym shorts? A lot more room to breathe.

    Jock strap is the most comfortable piece of underwear for me. Therefore I mainly wear those... sometimes a thong and maybe 1-2 times a month briefs.
    I think it will be better for you too icon_smile.gif

    Jockstraps are meant to compress everything up front. They're not supposed to feel roomy. At all. And that's the appeal for guys in contact sports, to protect the goods.

    The problem is that whatever underwear you're using is probably pure cotton and doesn't have anything to keep the fiber from stretching out. I can testify that these Underarmour Boxerjock shorts are great. They hold their shape and they're very comfortable.

    Well, I say buy a one and try it out to see if you like them.

    I used them for sports and working out only. I know what you mean about stretching out boxers. However, the Jockstrap does give you support and the necessary freedom to do your workout comfortable. For me, it keeps my low hangers in place, and I don't have to be adjusting all the time like when I wear boxers.

    So, try a pair and see if they are for you, cause only you know if you will like them or not.

    Get a jock and see how it works out for you. I recommend a real jock (ie Bike or Duke brand) that's heavy-duty and meant for athletes (as opposed to fashion jocks, which presumably have some purpose, but I haven't figured it out icon_smile.gif) Bike and Duke jocks have ample room up front, and you'll definitely feel more freedom of movement overall. Worth spending 7 bucks to find out if you like it.

    PrinceOfArya saidhey guys,

    Also, my other concern is I usually have a problem of not having enough frontal room with most active briefs so i was wondering if jock straps were built the same or tend to provide more of a roomy frontal pouch.

    The obvious answer is for you to buy one and decide for yourself. Some guys like jocks for certain sports & exercise (me), and some guys do not. It's not a big investment, so just try one and see.

    For me, the advantages are a shaped and ventilated pouch, that doesn't flatten my goods like briefs do, that keeps everything in place very effectively. Also a minimalist design that is cooler. If you haven't worn a jock before it may feel strange at first, but give it some time and you may come to like them. Or else you won't. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. For usually less than $10 USD for an ordinary Bike jock (no designer label nonsense) I presume it ain't gonna break the bank.

    Jocks are comfy, supportive, and cool. They've endured for a very long time for a reason: they work; folks like them. Who's to say if you well. You'll have to perform that discovery on your own, and decide for yourself.

    Two products I've bought over the years strike me as having exceptional quality: my SoniCare toothbrush, which I bought in 2001, and it STILL works perfectly today, and my UnderArmour which has survived the test of time since 1999. (Yep, 11 YEARS.) UnderArmour has remarkable quality, functionality, and durability, and, for me, has surpassed all my expectations.

    For doing leg work, many folks prefer compressions shorts. There's been some good sports science done on compression garments, in general, and their efficacy. Compression garments work via muscle flattening and reducing vibration. (Nope, it wasn't your imagination.) If you're interested in knowing more, you'll want to do your own discovery on compression garments.

    i usually wear a pair of compression shorts under my shorts. they are a little tighter but definitely keep everything where it needs to be. especially if you get a little excited lol.

    Jocks are perfect for leg work outs; squats and inverted squat rack.

    I wear a jock for my workout, especially for my cardio...keeps everything in place and at the same time allows maximum breathability...which is why there is almost nothing to them.
    If I could work out naked, I would. (except the jock of course.)

    How many times do we have to start a new OP on this subject, and why do I never grow tired of it?

    I wear jocks when I do legs, and on heavy cardio days. Otherwise, it's UnderArmour for me. I've tried UA compression shorts on leg days but my balls somehow manage to find their way down, so I gave up.

    Definitely try a jock. That is what I wear all the time to work out because my workout shorts are not lined. The jock is less confining and in a hot gym, if your shorts are loose, there is natural airconditioning. It holds your package in place but not much else there. It is not a sexual arousing thing for me to wear one - just a piece of clothing that is very comfortable.

    The only concern I see for you is that your waist size is 28" but you imply you have a really large package. You might have to try a small size jock because of your waist size and not sure that will hold a really big package. All you can do is try. If you think you can do a medium size for your waist, opt for that one. Fortunately, the jock pouches are pretty stretchy.

    Let us know if you try one and how it worked out.

    forgot to post feedback. after a month or two trying them I find regular bike jocks the best as opposed to swimmer style. AMAZINGLY COMFY when doing physical activity or even just going to bed in.

    the pouch does have a few issues for me but the material is pretty stretchy although i get a draw since the strings near the ass tend to be suspended, let me know if there are other athletic brands that you guys suggests. will try compressions as well

    thanks!

    On leg day? Nope. At worst it's embarrassing, but then again- nobody really cares if your shorts go into your butt crack.

    Damn, that's sexy! Nice,uh, package. But I would agree that jocks are the best to work out in. Give the best support, especially for the deep squats.

    For lifting I never wear anything under gym shorts. That's just more laundry to do. icon_confused.gif
    For athletic activities I like compression shorts (they come with a nice pouch so they give you room where you need it, don't move around, and tned to be made of wicking materials that don't hold water - I think of them as upgraded boxer-briefs). I second that underarmour is a good brand.
