Male running underwear advice

Post by Duporai » Fri Dec 20, 2019 8:43 am

I have been a very sporatic casual runner (95% treadmill) for years, but have recently become more serious and consistent with it. Most of my runs are 20-30 minutes guided by a chest heart rate monitor. I don’t have a desire to do distance running.

It has become my realization that I require some additional support for my testicles (gasp!). I think the bouncing around is aggravating them and causing a day long ache (which resolves).

I have been reading about it online and most pages just seem to rank the top underwear for running which seems to be a boxer brief style. There are just so many to choose from and I don’t particularily like the idea of spending $40+ per pair when I don’t do laundry everyday.

Do any runners here have recommendations that they have tried?

Hi Duporai,

Get yourself a few pairs of running split shorts, the have inbuilt briefs.

Also, get some bodyglide anti-chafe balm.
