I don't give a fuck how sporty you think you are. No excuse.
I have short shorts for the gym and the gym alone.
They're important for fucking hot days.
Has the weather broken yet? It still seems incredibly mild.
I'm now on board with zxcvbnm's thesis and support it 100%
also nice when its very hot
wouldn't wear them on public transport mind, bit indecent, my hairy legs run all the way up and join with my belly hair
Your short shorts are making everyone else in the gym uncomfortable.
With a split/V at the side that creeps even further up your hip?
with the v split up the sides.
He also used to have an afro and a pet pigeon called Fonzie. It was more acceptable to be weird in the olden days.
So that there are barely two inches of fabric covering my hairy pins and ample scope for a ball to slip out.
above the knee or alan partridge style with no under pant lining?
Lining perished or otherwise
I don't think I could fact that discussion again.
why do they exist? really make your bum sore on holiday when you're sitting down for your massive lunch post swim.
But without the afro or pet pigeon.
I was strolling through the park yesterday and there was a man with three plastic cones (and short shorts). He'd run to the nearest cone, touch the ground, then run back to his starting point. Then he'd run to the second nearest cone, lie down next to it and start doing sit-ups, then run back to his starting point. Then he'd run to the furthest away cone, lie down next to it and start doing press-ups, then run back to his starting point. And he kept on doing it.
Not sure what my point is. Don't think he could have done that in jogging bottoms.
Thanks to that thread I now ditch the underwear at the gym and rely entirely on the inner netting to spare my blushes. You guys better be right that you're not supposed to wear underwear with them
It's a bit try-hard.
You never even answered my question about Revels the other day
Is he supposed to do it at 3am or in a cave or something?
Like, those partridge ones
that go up at the sides are probably never ok on men (although I sometimes wear ones like that for running if my Skins aren't clean. DOUBLE STANDARDS).
I do like a well toned body in reasonably short shorts though. A man with great legs > any other man.
but i know i dont like it.
Right, I'm off to the park. To work out. In front of everyone else.
they'll have to pay to use the park soon. hang on, weren't you against that? rock and a hard place huh?
Gareth, get the cones
(It probably is actually. As you were.)
Why did I come back into this thread?
(i did this once but dont tell anyone)
If you're a bloke and have done any exercise beyond long-distance running, chances are that your legs will be chunky and will look rubbish in shorts. It's like skinny jeans.
And we used to go to the gym together.
whose gym shorts look like he's just ripped out the gusset of those black tights/leggings the babes of today are so fond of. It's rather off putting when I'm sitting there bench pressing, like, 100kg or whatever.
Playing sports is alright.
Working out? Nah...
One of my friends did a half marathon with his girlfriend but had to stop halfway through to go to the bathroom. She decided to wait for him and they ran the whole rest of the race together but when they got to within 400m of the finish line he burned her off. She was livid - one of my favourite photos in the world is the one of her slapping him as she crossed the finish line.
it gets a bit sweaty and 'cramped' down there, but then again at least it's safe and I think 'well, at least i'm not Lucien' and all's right with the world.
I've only ever done it in my garden, though.
(still talking about 'working out')
(I hate the term 'working out')
and stay safe
Come at me, bro
Jogging alongside his raggedy arse probably added 15 minutes to her time. Never run with your partner. Ever.
So long as you're not a sedentary blob, you probably have great legs.
Footie shorts != short shorts. Unless it's 1990 again.
He got on my nerves.
but he did seem to be affiliated to some sort of football team training session.
I think it's good people using parks for that kind of thing. The wider the range of stuff that parks are used for the better. Otherwise they just become patches of grass for dog shit and tramps.
but I don't like the bit where I have to drop my kecks and put on shorts over nothing - I always do a quick check to make sure no-one's looking. It feels like I'm getting away with something.
This post goes out to robluvsnic
Running with a tyre chained to your waste (for reals) is working out.
Fuck off balboa
so you're talking strictly about those tight little seventies shorts?
http://tiny.cc/xbglh <---- WRONG.
because im not going to stop wearing them, but I'd like to know it I'm wrong or right to do so.
then a girl gave me a contemptuous look as I made my way to the rowing machine replete in my shin length camo shorts.
Now it's shiny red 80s tiny smalls all the way. Fuck the police.
make your mind up.
(do you want me to pm you a picture? x)
The guy's a MACHINE.
then his legs will be chunky.
You then said that your legs weren't chunky because you are a cyclist.
(and yes please, ta)
sorry, 'working out'.
Unless they're Linda McCartney, I don't do suasages.
I'm only a munchkin and even I can outrun most men.
It's clearly a dude... or a woman with a dubious package in her shorts.
a quick crop of your desktop backback. speaking of cropped...
at my friend's house, and he saw my balls up the leg of the shorts, through the netting. i've been a bit scared of them since. i still have some for swimming though.
gonna buy 'em. what.
The subject was just ''Lucien'' and attached was this picture; http://www.overkamp.co.uk/images/SprinterRed1.jpg
but made of very light fabric. These are perfectly adequate for running.
This is why I can not understand the thinking behin short shorts.
It actually makes me quite angry when I see men in them. There's something `I'm so fit I don't care how much of a dick I look` about it.

Though I did buy some fairly snug ronhills.
who lives in or near a beach area
and likes rollerskating on the pier or promenade
in the 70's.
a man, wearing tights, with a padded crotch and little reflective bits on the side. what do you think about that? i think i look like the dog's nads. I imagine you agree.
put those pegs away.
He sounds cool
wearing cycling tights this morning.
Clearly he was a commuter...so I reckon he strolls into the office in this ridiculous attire puffing out his chest thinking ''I BET EVERYONE IS FUCKING IMPRESSED WITH HOW COCKING ATHLETIC I SHITTING WELL AM''
Type of person nobody tells that everybody is going to the pub for lunch.
expect everyone invited me to everything all the time. loads of mates. king of the swingers. screw you, guy.
about how you're going for a curry for lunch because it's the end of the month and I bet you've had the nerve to do this from the DAY YOU STARTED.
he's got about 7 different bikes.
be at peace
I get annoyed by them as they always try and over take me at lights with their stupid little wheels.
The nerve of those people.
Clark wanted one. I wouldn't let him.
Well, I laughed at him until he didn't want one.
in the 2000 and eleventies.
He's starting a roller disco.
