“As a coach, I realize the benefits that weightlifting movements (snatch, clean and jerk) offer in regards to athleticism. My programming includes 4-5 days of these movements per week. Depending on the shoulder strength of the athlete, their hand position may set the bar in an unfavorable spot (pubic bone) when s/he is in the power position (2nd pull). A high volume will only add discomfort to this area during the snatch. These shorts have completely taken away the pain when making contact to the bar near or at the hip crease. I most definitely recommend these to all of my male athletes.”
