    Dear Santa Claus,
    I am fine, how are you? I heard you were having discomfort. Put your balls in a sock; when you run, they won't knock.


    Your Friend,

    As much as I despised them in my youth I am more and more using a jockstrap to work out in. I used to wear a size smaller boxer brief under my shorts for support but the newer jocks don't seem to pinch and bind like I remember (however hardons in jocks...ugh).

    Dear Santa,
    I was very good last year. Why didn't I get BiItalianBro or NCBear wearing a new jockstrap in my stocking? I promised to only be naughty with them.

    When I go running on a daily basis I wear briefs or a jock strap.

    Recently bought a pair of Jockey, mesh w/pouch. Absolutely awesome underwear. They are a blend of polyester and spandex. The sides and back are a tight woven mesh but the crotch and pouch are solid fabric, really holds everything in place but when you run, you get the feel of the smooth spndex against your package with the little bit of sliding that it causes. Not bad priced either, I bought mine at Macy's for $20.00/package of 2. Give em a try, I don't think you will be disappointed.

    a jock...better than anything else you can imagine. it supports but also shifts as your legs move.

    Performance trunks are good for workouts. You can find them everywhere. American Eagle just started up with new pairs and they are really great.

    The new jocks are made with softer fabric and weaker elastic in the pouches, and straps. They won't last for 5 years but they are a lot more comfortable.

    have to agree competely, when I was (much much) younger, I swear they were made of barbed wire- no 'give' at ALL, and the pouch snapped TIGHT...

    but now, actually comfortable (as much as you CAN be but...)

    Have you tried just a good pair of running shorts with the built in liner? The liner material is designed to wick away moisture. It's not a lot of support, but should be better than boxers. I find this to be the most comfortable approach, and I run about 20 miles in the typical week.

    When I ran routinely, I wore everyday briefs. They did the job well.

    There's no support at all from the liner! Mine whips out right away. I can't use them without underwear or getting caught by the police. :rolleyes:

    I don't understand where the lining is for.

    I use tight briefs and a pair of hugging (non elastic) strings to hold everything together. I don't like things to flop around when I'm running.:smile:

    I'm no hardcore runner (I just use treadmills) but I second the sentiments of the person who recommended the UnderArmour BoxerJock. I wear these for all kinds of activities (hiking, cycling, weightlifting, cross-country skiing, etc.) and they are great. They're 5-10 percent lycra so they give a hint of compression and support without the full genitalia-crushing treatment that I have found with actual compression shorts.

    You can easily find them at major sporting goods stores: Dick's, Modell's, Sports Authority, etc.

    The BoxerJock comes in 2-3 different leg lengths; I personally prefer the longer ones, just to minimize riding up the thighs.

    Steve

    I run cross-country and track and all i ever run in is the regular running shorts with the built in liner. They hold pretty well in my experience as long as you buy the right size. I've only ever had floppin out problems a few times but it wasn't anything serious. Some guys on the team wear compression shorts but i think that they are uncomfortable.

    Try running shorts with built in liner or a lycra / spandex speedsuit that fits well.
