Men's underwear for weightlifting
February 11, 2013 2:25 PM   Subscribe

Looking for recommendations for men's underwear - comfortable, supportive, but keeps your package tucked back so you don't bash 'the boys' on the bar when doing deadlifts.

Pretty much any kind of boxer briefs.

I wear Under Armour, the BoxerJock style, but I'm sure you can find cheaper knockoffs out there if cost is an issue. I tend to favor the Under Armour-type fabrics over cotton because cotton tends to absorb moisture and get gross and rub.

I wear standard compression shorts.

Compression shorts, yep. I like under armour, but they're not super cheap.

I like jock straps more than compression shorts. It keeps everything in place allows everything to breath. But perhaps I have has bad luck with the quality of Under Armor.

This has never come up for me. I just checked and when I get to the top of a deadlift the bar is below boys-level for me. But everyone I know wears boxer-briefs to the gym.
