Monster Thighs Rubbing Together
I've been having issues with my upper thighs rubbing together during cardio sessions. I tried baby powder, boxer briefs, and simply walking/jogging w/ a wider stance/step. All of these have failed... the baby powder wears off after 10min, the boxer briefs get sweaty and blown out and hang to my knees, and the wider stance just sucks.
The only thing I've been able to do is hike my shorts/sweats up like Steve Erkel so that the crotch seam is all up in my business keeping my thighs from touching.
I'm sure I'm not the only one w/ this problem. I'm going to look for some actual "bike" shorts and see if that helps.
What do you guys do to help?

Boxer briefs, hanes brand from target, cheap and effective. My legs are 29inches right now, dont know if thats bigger or smaller than you, but hope this helps.
And i kinda tuck my briefs up so that they are as high as possible, cradles my shit, prevents rubbing.

have you tried body glide yet? Basically a lubricant that goes on your inner thigh (or wherever your skin rubs, under arms, etc). A lot of runners use it.
BODYGLIDE | technically advanced balms, for comfort, for life
There are other similar products out there, thats just one example.

I get this also, the only relief I get is from boxer briefs or sometimes I find workout pants that prevent this also, have pair of Nike's that stop the chaffing

Compression shorts are the best option. Try to the get the longer version that go to about mid-thigh.

Shave the area that is rubbing, and apply duct tape. Problem solved.

commando is asking for pain when you got thighs, friction in the upper thigh crouch region is instant once you start sweatin just a lil bit

When my legs were 29", nothing worked, no boxer briefs or gold bond or vaseline(friction ate it up). Diaper rash got unbearable, only thing that worked was no more heavy leg work and losing 60lbs. Problem solved(probably not the answer you're looking for).

The compression shorts would be the best soution, i also know that the body glide is amazing stuff. I have never used it on my legs but i use it a lot on my upper body to prevent chaiffing in the arm pits and nipples when i run my long distance days, so i figure it would work on the legs too.

x2 on the compression/sliding shorts. you can pick a pair up for 20 bucks. there comfy and there is no friction/chaf***e between the legs

I'm old. Was strength training, kept injuring my back anyway. WAAAY to heavy(296), quit squatting altogether. Lighter leg work now, lots of cardio, remove some fat. Maybe I'll go back to it, after cut is over(233 now)
