I wear tightie wighties as the best support I have, but thinking about going out and buying some jocks.

Strictly commando...always! Makes for fun times when my bottoms split when squatting :green:

Boxer briefs as well. Don't want them flopping around down there!

Like hoosegow's, except I think they're slightly longer - it might be these: http://www.underarmour.com/shop/us/en/m ... 201168-001

Boxer briefs *nod*

I remember doing a leg day with cheap normal boxers - the kind that are fine when stood up walking about but any movement like lunge/squat would be awful! never made that mistake again hehe.

I wear the same underwear I always wear. They are like tightie whities, but they are cut just a a bit higher and they are all different colors. They are called low rise briefs.

My wife's tongs :eek:

Nah, just the regular 'ole boxer briefs I typically wear. The only problem with them is sometimes they tend to ride up the legs when doing squats.

I'm either going to get jocks or some more tightie wighties. Feel like the jocks are only good for working out, while tightie wighties I can wear with normal clothes.

Not sure what size to buy. I lost a bunch of wieght. Probaly in between a 30 and a 32, now.

probably should buy more boxers. The ones I have are all size 40 waist. They fit fine with the elastic, but sometimes too much material now and ride up my stomach. But for some reason, I just want to wear them all out. Hmmm...maybe I could buy some new ones to go along with the too big ones...hmm....

Boxer briefs! I stopped wearing regular boxers after they kept ripping in the hole when I squatted. I did go commando for a short time after I had no underwear to squat with..Nothing is worse then trying to complete your squats in torn draws. Better off having none at all at that point.

It completely depends on the day. I noticed that I prefer support so I own and wear bikini briefs boxer briefs and a mix between tighty whities and boxerbriefs but form fitting.

On long cardio days which is evryday now I prefer boxer briefs so I dont chaff my upper thighs. What ever is comfortable for you I think would work best.
