Back in the day, jocks were pretty much what you wore to the gym. They were made to give you plenty of support and maximum freedom. One small trivia bit, the stripes on the waistband on the classic Bike #10 jocks stripes were different for each sizes. Made that way so you could sort jocks without having to read the label.

Back to the point of the post! Now guys are wearing UnderArmour undies, briefs, trunks and even thongs to the gym. It’s rare you may see a guy change at the gym wearing a thong, but they are wearing them. Many are using them under runners or spandex so they have no or limited lines.

Why Do I like Jocks to work out

I like to wear a jock because of the range of motion. Unlike trunks or UA gear. You are able to bend and stretch. Wearing something like a boxer brief it can ride up when you bend down or stretch too far. There is nothing more annoying to me. A jock won’t loose it’s shape and bind when you stretch.

Jocks for working out, not fashion jocks, are made for exercising. They are made out of material that will keep you cool and dry. One thing I could never figure out is how guys can work out in 100% cotton briefs or boxer briefs. They get wet and don’t breath through the work out. It annoys me to no end.

Lastly, you can express yourself in your jock. Long gone are the days of just the white jock. You can get them in any color of the rainbow. It can even match your workout gear. Most of the sports jocks are solids. I haven’t seen too many prints. I prefer blue, green and red jocks to work out in. It gets me in a good mood!

Are you going to wear a jock to work out? If you are let me know!
