With two pairs for £22, Gymshark’s simple Sports Tech briefs are great value for money. Another reliable gym wardrobe workhorse, they’re made from a mix of polyester and elastane. However, they have a more textured finish than the shiny, soft, smooth fabric you find on the Under Armour 6-inch Tech Boxerjocks and Reebok Performance Boxer Briefs. That gives them some extra breathability, sweat-wicking and quick-drying skills.
Gymshark Sports Tech Boxers features
Tested on runs, strength sessions, Wattbike spin intervals other high-movement workouts where support is important, they don’t disappiont. They move well with your body and show no signs of rubbing, chafing or heaviness on short workouts.
Hit the gym with the best shorts for men
However, the leg length is a touch shorter on the thigh and they can rise up quite high when you’re doing things like deep squats and lunges. But the support was good for everything but the highest impact drills and activities and they’re still pretty versatile and comfortable.
For CrossFit, HIIT and lifting these are the best gym shoes
The waistband’s wide and soft and does a great job of staying put even when you’re reaching and stretching. We had no trouble with rolling or cutting. Seams are kept to a minimum but the reinforcements that carve out the slightly thicker pouch are quite fat and there are probably better endurance-friendly options out there that carry less chafe risk.
For training or lounging these are the best sweatpants and joggers
Durability looks good: they continue to hold their shape after numerous washes. They dry fast too, which is a bonus. It’s worth noting that there’s no front-fly easy access.
The Gymshark Sports Tech boxers only come in black but they’re available in seven sizes from S to XXXL.
