The LP Athletic Support with Box is a jockstrap that also includes an impact and shatter resistant cup to protect the groin area.
This protective apparel supports the male genitalia during cycling, basketball or other vigorous sporting or athletic activity. The support is essentially a waistband with a support pouch to hold the genitalia and two elastic straps. The straps connect to the base of the pouch and to both sides of the waistband at the hip.
LP has engineered the accompanying impact and shatter resistant cup with the lightest and strongest plastic available. As a result, it will absorb powerful impacts while providing protection from injury.
You should consider wearing compression shorts over the LP Athletic Supporter if you need a tighter fit for the cup against your body. The cup should be tight against your body to function as intended. You want to be sure that it is tight enough to prevent it rolling or twisting out of position during activity.
Tip – When putting on the athletic support, adjust the leg straps so that they lie flat underneath or against your behind. Remove any twists in the straps.
Tip # 2 – after you have put on the athletic support, take a few steps around the room. Additionally, try doing a couple of squats or lunges. Check to see if the cup of the support pinches you or moves around, and adjust its position if it does. Then try a few more steps, squats and lunges. Continue until the cup stays securely in place despite movement. If it continues to move around, try changing the size you have chosen.
