Why to wear gym Supporter during the workouts

We do exercises like overhead triceps extension , one hand triceps extensions , dumbbell press for shoulders , squats for thighs etc , excessive weight around the mid-section could put lot of pressure and pull on muscles and organs, which results in a tremendous burden, and ultimately leads to hernia. There is no proper answer given to “Why to wear gym Supporter”

A hernia occurs when an organ pushes through an opening in the muscle or tissue that holds it in place. Hernias occur when the intestines push through a weak spot or tear in the lower abdominal wall, often in the inguinal canal

There has been lot of confusion about Hernia been caused by heavy lifting or not and there has been no proven fact about it. It’s always better to be on a safer side. Personally we recommend that everyone should wear supporters while training, if you don’t wear it, there are still chances of getting injured and Hernia.

Gym supporter, athletic supporter or jockstrap consists of an elastic band with a support pouch for the male genitals and two elastic straps attached to the base of the pouch and to the left and right sides of the waistband at the hip. The biggest benefit of jockstrap is the ability to add a protective cup in the pouch.

The purpose of jockstrap is to hold the male genitals in place and suppress excessive motion. A supportive pair of briefs can also serve the same amount of anti-bouncing purpose. A hard blow to genitals without a groin guard can end up in building of excess fluid in scrotum.







Inguinal Indireta hernias are the most common type of hernia. They make up to 70 percent of all hernias.

How Hernias are treated:

Inguinal or incisional hernias are usually diagnosed through a physical examination. Your doctor may feel for a bulge in your abdomen or groin that gets larger when you stand, cough, or strain.

Doctor will simply monitor your hernia for possible complication and will recommend any of the below

  1. Life Style Changes
    Avoiding heavy meals, controlling weight and bend over after meals
  2. Medication
    As per the complications, doctor will give the prescription
  3. Surgery
    If your hernia is growing larger or causing pain, surgery is the last option

It’s important to identify the early signs of a hernia. An untreated hernia will not go away on its own. However, with early medical care or lifestyle changes, you can reduce the effects of a hernia and avoid life-threatening complications.

How to wear Gym Supporter

The gym supporter  should be tight enough to lift and hold the penis and testicles close to the body, out of the way during movement. but not too tight, as chafing can contribute to jock itch

Pick a supporter of your size, your underwater size is the best to go with. Choose a quality material which reduces the chances of itches.
