"Plumber's crack" while squatting
Anyone else deal with their pants and/or especially underwear pulling down during squats? Would some kind of underarmor garment help?

It's not always *that* bad but I find the sensation of them moving downwards (a little more with each rep) distracting. I can't fully concentrate on the exercise when I'm worried that I'm going to look like this:

Just get different underwear.

For gym stuff I just the Adidas boxer briefs they sell at Costco, they are cheap and they have a tight band.

Get some compression shorts/bike shorts and wear them under your regular shorts.

They'll keep your thighs warm between sets. And a nice bonus: you'll get a little bounce out of the bottom of the hole when you squat.

You'll stop winking at the rest of the gym also.

Use the drawstring on your pants and tie it tight. Pant's can't drop if they can't pass the hips...

I recommend squatting with only running shoes, gloves and white briefs.

All your other clothes weigh you down when you could be adding that extra weight to the bar and impressing the chicas in the gym.

Use a barbell pad so the bar doesn't scratch up your back. You'll need a large barbell pad to do low-bar squats with the correct form anyway.

Laugh This was actually a real issue... mainly the problem as I see it is that I've been doing my workouts in a colder location and some of the long underwear I have is apparently too tight.

Hmmm, I do have somewhat of a callous on my back from squats now that you mention it...

Seriously though, I had to try several different pairs of underwear before I found one that worked for me and would stay put when bending over.
