What you wear under your workout shorts matters when you want your assets to look their best as you squat, lift, and thrust during your workouts. Your personal trainer may suggest you wear jockstrap underwear to enhance your comfort and protection.
Men’s jockstraps offer support and protection during sports, workouts, or other physical activities. While some men prefer to wear boxers while working out, they do not provide the same level of support as a jockstrap. The right men’s jockstrap can keep you comfortable during your workout session without sacrificing style and protection.
The Jockstrap Style
The traditional jockstrap design includes an elastic belt and pouch to cover your scrotum. The elastic straps at the bottom of the pouch pass between your legs and loop around your buttocks. A removable plastic cup or protective cup can help to protect your sensitive parts from traumatic injury.
Jockstraps also called athletic supporters, provide better movement, comfort, and flexibility than standard men’s underwear, but it comes down to personal preference. Some of the features you should look for in a high-quality jockstrap include:
- Double-cross stitching in the front pouch and back seam straps for breathability and durability.
- Vertical stitching to give more lift to your lower parts.
- External stitching to reduce skin chafing and irritation even during vigorous movements like running or dancing.
- A pouch that can provide more lift.
- Elastic fabrics made from polyester and spandex that are durable and allow improved airflow and sweat management.
Benefits of Jockstraps for Workouts
The jockstrap is comfortable and will not limit your range of motion. It protects your pleasure parts from impact, which is common in many sports and exercises, especially contact sports.
Movement and Comfort During Workouts
Jockstrap underwear has no fabric in the rear, which allows freedom of movement during your routine. Using a jockstrap enables you to move your body easily as you run long distances or stretch your legs.
Make sure the elastic waistbands in your jockstraps fit comfortably. Wide elastic waistbands won’t dig into your body, causing irritation while you’re working out.
Breathability During Your Workouts
Exercise requires proper ventilation in the groin area since it is prone to sweating. Insufficient ventilation can lead to a strong body odor and potential bacterial skin infections. Since jockstraps use minimal fabric, they provide optimal ventilation during exercise.
It ensures you can move freely at your rear. The pouch also helps lift your member and the boys away from your body, regulating your body temperature and minimizing sweat production. A jockstrap can keep you dry, sweat-free, and comfortable during your workout.
You can wear breathable outerwear over your jockstrap for increased ventilation during vigorous physical activity. If you plan to wear compression shorts, make sure they won’t over-compress your jockstrap.
The Pouch Offers More Lift
The pouch in a jockstrap adds lift to your genitals and makes your butt appear tighter and fuller. Because the pouch supports your genitals, it holds them in place and offers shape enhancement, leaving all eyes in the gym wanting to see more.
Running or doing leg lifts or lunges for extended periods can cause penile and testicular injuries. This happens if the extra-thin skin around the testicles gets injured. Penile and testicular injuries can also cause swelling and inflammation, resulting in greater pain and discomfort.
If you have ever accidentally injured your goods while working out, then you know the discomfort can last for up to an hour. The external male genitals are sensitive organs because they contain a high concentration of densely packed nerves. While this is beneficial when seeking pleasure, it also means you need to wear proper protection when you’re physically active to avoid unnecessary pain.
Jockstrap underwear can offer extra protection from these injuries. It can help your sensitive parts stay in place better when you're running or doing weight training for prolonged periods.
Your jockstrap is easy to remove and wash if you work out frequently. Washing your jockstrap after every workout can keep it free of bacteria and fungal growth that can lead to infections. Dermatophytes, fungi that live on dead skin and hair cells, can build up within your cup and cause jock itch.
You can wash your jockstrap by hand or machine-wash it in cold water and dry it on low heat. Remember not to bleach or iron your jockstrap, as these can damage the look and fit.
