If you’re a serious runner, you’re going to need a solid pair of compression shorts.

Compression shorts (as you might have guessed) compress and separate groin and thigh muscles in order to prevent injury and irritation.

Champion’s compression shorts are a fantastic choice for warmer weather because they’re made of slightly thinner material than others.

“Half the cost of UA and the quality seems to be close to, if not equal to, that of Under Armour,” one reviewer wrote.

Champion men’s compression short: $US11.99 – $US24.95
