Should men wear underwear with shorts that have a lining when running or working out?

If the shorts have a lining is it better not to wear underwear when working out or running. I mean like Nike or adidas tight undies. Which is better? I just don't know

    It's up to the guy. Neither is better, in general. A guy won't run faster or workout better without underwear, unless he's more comfortable that way, and thus can focus on his workout and not on his clothing.

    It depends on whether the lining supports your junk well enough to withstand the impact of running. Quality shorts probably do until they get old and lose elasticity and recovery. Cheap shorts may never do a good enough job.

    You can test your shorts unobtrusively by going on a very short run, like a quarter mile. That's enough to know whether you're bouncing all over the place in there.
