yes its needed for a football player to wear jockstrap


Need? Likely. But, jock straps have fallen out of favor for compression shorts and Under Amour has become the biggie because they offer boxer jocks and other forms of support other than the bare-bottom jock straps of old.

I'd wear a cup too just because football is hard-hitting and you just never know where or when a flying knee or football cleet is going to seek-out your package.

You should wear a jockstrap and a cup for football. Unless you want your balls crushed. I've been hit in the balls playing football without a cup and it hurts like hell. You don't want a football crashing into your nuts, or a guy tackling you and having his knee somewhere it shouldn't be.

This is completely up to you. If you wear boxers, normally you will put the jockstrap over the boxer or boxer brief. If you wear briefs you can wear it over or under. Anything smaller than that you might try wearing it under. Or you can just wear it as itself. It's a personal preference. I do not wear underwear with a jockstrap.

You wear it the same as your underwear against your bare skin with the cup pocket facing you you can also either wear it by itself or under a pair of underwear? As an athletic, I have worn a jockstrap while running, weightlifting, playing basketball and etc. but I am no expert. I never wear underwear over my jockstrap. The jock gives you much needed support. If you are playing a sport like baseball or (American) football, I would recommend wearing a cup to protect your "boys". If you are riding a bike, I would recommend wearing a jockstrap with a soft cup.

Do swimmers wear a jock cup?

Most swimmers just wear Speedo or Speedo-like swimming suits. Some swimmers wear a "swimmers jockstrap" too. A "swimmers jockstrap" has a narrow 1-inch waist-band, which is smaller than the standard 3-inch waist-band of a standard jockstrap. The narrower 1-inch waistband will not reveal the jockstrap as much and the jockstrap waist-band will stay under the swimming suit. However, male swimmers who want to show a bigger "package" may chose to wear a cup-jockstrap under their swimming suit to enhance their masculine appearance. But they don't really need the protection of a cup when they are swimming. So it is all a mater of personal preference.

When should you wear a jockstrap?

When you are in contact sports such as b-ball baseball and any other time that you feel the need for some support. I wear a jock when running.
