Awkward question for the guys


Recommended Posts

Hey fellas! Ok so here's the situation.

 

I've started the Stronglifts 5x5 program which includes doing a lot of squats. Aaaand... my underwear can't hack it. Sadly several pairs have bit the dust, ripping from the movements. Any suggestions for sturdy underwear that is not too expensive?

Check out the brand "Life" at Walmart. Their regular briefs are polyester and stretch just fine. Also, non boxers don't really have the problem, with splitting from squats because they don't pull like boxers do.

too old to change my ways now!

...until you blow out a few pairs :D

 

I'm moving away from boxers, too bunch bunching up around the hip joint areas.

 

Boxer briefs have been great. Find a brand that works for you. Mine are "Royal" (a.k.a. Aldi value brand). Just find something that stretches

 

 

And on the subject of stronglifts and squats: Congrats! I've been hitting 5x5 since about october.

 

And on squats...alway poo before you squat...had a close call once, that's all I'll say

Boxer briefs are what I am looking for! There are no Aldi around here unfortunately

 

As for the number two issue.... I have been so paranoid of a mishap I pre-emptively eject beforehand already lol!
