The Jockstraps Underwear- Every Athlete’s Little Armor
Jockstrap underwear is to a sportsman, what armor is to a warrior. Especially, athletes pursuing high impact sports such as football, rugby or wrestling need it more than anyone. Jockstraps protect your genitalia from injuries which can set you into bed-rest for many days. Every, aspiring sportsman dreams of winning college leagues, state championships and so on, but never does he think, what major injuries can be met with if proper protection is not taken care of. So it is always advisable to put on your sports underwear when you go out to practice.
Jockstraps help you by taking care of your genitals, while you play, run, jump or twist. As your testicles are separated from your main body, they tend to bounce and hit against your inner thighs while you play. Since, they are connected to the central nervous and blood transport system through delicate ducts, they are strained when such movements take place. Jockstrap underwear holds your genitals firmly, and do not allow the delicate blood vessels and nerves to stretch unnecessarily and suffer from straining.
Some jockstraps also have provision for impact resistant cups, accessories which are almost synonymous with jockstraps. Impact resistant cups may be made of steel, metal or hard plastic. The pouch section of the jockstrap usually has a pocket where the cup can be slid in. It is usually advised to wear the jockstrap over normal underwear. It is extremely important that the cup should snugly fit into the jockstraps, otherwise the hard material of the cup may do more harm to the testicles on impact rather than protect it.
