I have been following CFFB religiously and following all your advice on what it will take for me to get to the next level. From your earlier posts regarding programming, nutrition, sleep, etc., it’s clear that I need to be prepared in all phases of my life, both in the gym and outside it. I’ve come across a single piece of equipment that seems to be incredibly versatile in its ability to help enhance athleticism and public image. It also seems really popular with NFL players, but I haven’t seen it come up on your blog. It’s jorts. Never having worn jorts myself, I was hoping you could lend your perspective on whether jorts could help me as much as they’ve helped these other athletes.
First: how do you recommend power athletes wear their jorts? Should I go old school and hem?
Or, should I keep up with the advancements in jort technology and let them all the way out?
Second: for strength training, will jorts help me increase my CFFB Total?
Or just develop my legs and core?
Third: Do you recommend using a fanny pack when lifting with jorts, or is that just overkill?
Those are more performance related questions, but I have some personal development questions about jorts too.
How does the general public view athletes that wear jorts?
I’m curious about public reaction, because I’d like to know whether wearing jorts can help me land related sponsorship deals too?
The upside to wearing jorts seems limitless, but are there also downsides or risks I should be aware of?
For instance, can wearing jorts when you’re too young negatively impact your growth? Or, should I get my kids in them right away?
Finally, is wearing jorts a privilege?
Or a right?
Thanks in advance for your help on this.
I had the same reaction to your question, as I did when I saw Katy Perry was going to be on Sesame Street. Wow.
There is power in the jorts. I am sure there if we were to poll all CF Footballers, there would be more than a few jorts in the drawers.
I say rock them; let fashion be damned.
