The 10 Best Men’s Workout Shorts 2024, Active Guy’s Buying Guide

It’s 2024, and you don’t want to be that guy training in a whack pair of shorts that ends up just slowing you down in the gym. However, there are so many options to choose from that it can be nearly impossible not to get paralyzed by choice.

Look, I’m a consumer and someone who buys the products he reviews. I got tired of being marketed workout shorts that make grandiose claims that tend to fall short in the gym. I felt like I was in a gym shorts echo chamber.

I built this list to help other lifters and athletes navigate the endless perils of finding the best workout shorts. Every week, I test my workout shorts’ capabilities and perform various training contexts — I’m a hybrid boy.

I would describe my training as “athletic” or “hybrid.” I lift heavy, do CrossFit WODs, tackle HIIT, jump, sprint, and run. Different types of workouts require different training shorts, and that’s why it’s been fun narrowing down my picks for different performance categories.

My Top Picks for Men’s Gym Shorts

Author’s Note: I updated this article in January 2024 to reflect changes that I’ve made in my “lifting” and “skinny legs” sections. These changes reflect new additions to this list.

How I Test Men’s Workout Shorts

With reviewing and testing training shoes and apparel, I have similar means of assessing different products. For men’s workout shorts specifically, I consider how a short is intended to be used, then I train in them — a lot.

In my training, I constantly shift gears between cross-training workouts, heavier strength work, running, and athletic-style training. Below are three areas of a short I keep an eye on when training.

Testing the Born Primitive Versatile for Daily Use

  • Mobility: How much does a short stretch when training? Is it limiting for certain workouts or activities like heavy squats? Will it be restrictive for certain anatomies AKA big thighs and skinny legs? How much quad, hammy, and adductor can we dudes carry around in them?
  • Durability: How does the short do in settings where it’s intended to perform well? For example, if a short is designed to be abrasion-resistant for lifting, does it hold its own for this ask? Are we wasting our money on another social media hype brand?
  • Versatility: How well does the short perform for different activities? If it’s a more pricey short, can it hold its own for different means of training, or is it hyper-specific, and should it be limited to only certain training settings?

These are the main components of many others that I constantly try to assess when reviewing men’s workout shorts. That said, there are plenty of shorts that can work well for the recreationally active guy, so I try to be a bit more granular in my assessments.

Best Overall: Ten Thousand Interval Short

Pros

  1. Strong well-rounded performance
  2. 4-way stretch shell is highly mobile
  3. Fit athletic legs well

Cons

  1. Waistband can bunch up

Why I Chose the Interval Short

The Ten Thousand Interval Short is my top pick overall and for CrossFit for a few key reasons. For starters, this short is incredibly consistent and it works for a variety of training settings. The 4-way stretch shell moves.

Stability Testing: Hatfield Squatting 435 lbs In the PUMA Fuse 3

If you’re hitting deep squats or attacking lateral movements, this short will move with you and never feel restrictive. On top of this, the Interval Short is also durable across the board and they should last you quite some time before having to invest in new shorts.

I’ve had a pair of Interval Shorts last two years before investing in a new pair, and mind you, I was training fairly hard in them and used them to prep for multiple powerlifting competitions. The final perk of the Interval Short for lifting is how good it is at sweat-wicking and anti-odor.

I admit I do not wash my workout shorts after every single use (oh, don’t you judge me!), and when I’m training in packed gyms I never want to be the smelly guy. The anti-odor tech in the Interval Short is solid and they dry fairly quickly.

Best for Big Thighs: Lululemon Pace Breaker

Context Needed: I don’t have the biggest and meatiest legs in the game by any means, but I’m constantly running into shorts that feel limiting due to a lack of short width and gusset construction.

Disclaimer: if you’re a stockier bodybuilder with notably large legs, then I still don’t think the pick below will be the best for you. A lot of my bodybuilding friends rock older jersey-style gym shorts due to their large circumference and sizing.

Pros

  1. Well-rounded performance for lifting and cross-training
  2. Thicker shell for meatier legs
  3. Good warranty, Lululemon typically fixes shorts that break

Cons

  1. Compression liner can lack long-term durability
  2. Higher price point

Why I Chose the Pace Breaker

The Lululemon Pace Breaker Short is an awesome workout short for a variety of needs. The updated Pace Breaker has a much more spacious shell which is great for lifters with different amounts of mass on their legs.

Lululemon Pace Breaker Short Try On for Review

The compression liner in the lined Pace Breaker Short fits pretty well and it has a good amount of breathability. There are also two pockets for phone storage in these shorts which is a nice perk if you like to cart your phone around the gym or when running.

I’ll rock the Pace Breaker Short most for lifting and cross-training sessions. They’re a good “do it all” style short and I like that they have a comfortable and casual appearance for daily wear as well.

I also like that Lululemon does a pretty good job of fixing their products when they break. Every time I run into durability issues with my Pace Breaker Short, Lululemon either fixes them or replaces them which is nice for peace of mind.

Best for Lifting: Born Primitive Versatile Short

Pros

  1. Great durable and stretchy option for lifting
  2. The compression liner has good security
  3. Good pick for thicker legs

Cons

  1. Compression liner can feel heavy at times
  2. The thick waistband can feel like “a lot”

Why I Chose the Versatile Short

The Born Primitive Versatile Short is my top pick for bigger thighs. Compared to their peers in this list, this short’s shell circumference runs a little larger which is great for guys with meatier quads and glutes.

Testing the Born Primitive Versatile Short Sizing and Fit

I think if you’re a guy who lifts consistently or does something like CrossFit and you hold more mass in your legs, then these would be a good option to explore as they don’t ride up a ton when training.

I also like that the compression liner in these shorts doesn’t feel overly restrictive while providing you with a nice level of security when training. These are shorts that I can wear for longer periods without feeling too tight, for example.

As mentioned above, though, a lot of my bodybuilding friends who hold a lot more leg mass than the average lifter and strength athlete constantly struggle to find shorts for big thighs and resort to older jersey-like gym shorts.

Why I Picked the Interval Short Here

The Ten Thousand Interval Short with the built-in liner is my top pick for gym shorts built with a quality compression liner. Over my last three years of training, the lined Interval Short is one of my most worn shorts.

The liner in this short does a really good job of providing you with enough security while not suffocating the legs. Plus, the liner in my Interval Shorts has typically lasted quite a while and their durability tends to be really great.

The liner in the Interval Short doesn’t feature pockets or a ton of frills like other compression liner training shorts, but I almost see that as a plus because it’s a tried and true liner that is bombproof for training.

Whether you’re doing CrossFit, lifting, or short runs, the Interval Short with the built-in liner should perform well and provide you with the security you need to keep the guys safe and sound.

Best for Comfort: Vuori Sunday Performance

Pros

  1. Awesome pocket system for daily wear
  2. Comfortable material is great for underwear/non-underwear use
  3. Casual appearance so they’re easy to wear out and about

Cons

  1. Can feel heavy for training
  2. Not the most cost-efficient

Why I Chose the Sunday Performance Short

The Vuori Sunday Performance Short is my top pick for lazy Sundays and comfort. It’s funny when I first invested in the Sunday Performance Short I was a little apprehensive of their higher price, but I’ve since become a big fan of them.

Vuori Sunday Performance Short Try On

More specifically, I like the Vuori Sunday Performance Short because outside of their comfort, they work pretty well in a wide range of contexts. You can wear them to run errands, casually, and in more relaxed settings and they fit the bill well.

Compared to other “gym-focused” shorts, the Sunday Performance Short has a much more casual vibe, which I like. The deeper pockets are great for carrying around your belongings and the knit material is soft on the skin.

These shorts are also great for rocking with or without underwear. If you like to wear shorts like this commando on a daily wear basis, then you shouldn’t have issues with revealing too much as the material typically is heavy enough to keep things incognito.

Best for Running: Ten Thousand FAR Short

Pros

  1. Shell is super lightweight and breathable,
  2. Trief breathes really well
  3. The waistband rarely has security issues

Cons

  1. Brief can ride up on bigger thighs
  2. Thone pocket can feel limiting for larger (max) phones

Why I Chose the Far Short

The Ten Thousand FAR Short is a great model for the serious runner who’s putting in a ton of mileage every week. This short delivers all of the elements that you’ll want from a running short and it’s designed with sustainable materials.

ten thousand far short running testing

Personally, that’s what earns this short as my top pick for running. In the world of fast fashion, it’s really cool to see models that utilize more environmentally-conscious materials while also performing at a high level.

Outside of the materials used in this short, I also love its light shell and its internal brief liner feels supportive but never restrictive. In some shorts, brief liners can ride up on me, but I never really have that issue in the FAR Short. The last aspect to like about the FAR Short is the posterior phone pocket.

This is one of the better phone pockets I’ve experienced in running shorts and it beats the internal waistband phone pocket that comes on the Ten Thousand Distance Short for security. If you run with your phone, then you’ll like the FAR Short’s phone pocket.

Best for Skinny Legs: Vuori Kore Short

Pros

  1. Shell has a high degree of stretch
  2. These can double as training and casual shorts
  3. Boxer brief liner is great for guys who don’t love a tight compression layer

Cons

  1. Shell can ride up on meatier legs
  2. The boxer brief doesn’t have the best compression

Why I Chose the Kore Short

The Vuori Kore Short can be a good workout short to explore if you have thinner legs. This short’s boxer brief liner and shell offer a nice blend of security while not feeling overbearing regarding their tightness.

Vuori Kore Short

That said, while the Vuori Kore Short works well for thinner legs it can also be a good option for slightly more muscular legs, too. I’ll rock my Kore Short when I want a pair of shorts for casual use that I can then wear to the gym.

The Kore Short’s lightweight boxer brief is great for guys who want breathability and enjoy a lighter feel of security. For context, even when jumping and doing things like clean & jerks I never feel like my goods aren’t secure in the Kore Short.

I also like that the Kore Short has a pretty good pocket system. If you want shorts for upper body days and you plan to keep your phone on you at the gym, I think you’ll enjoy the depth and security of this short’s pockets.

Best for Budget: LRD Athletic Shorts

Pros

  1. Strong performance across the board
  2. Really good price point
  3. Compression liner doesn’t feel lacking for the price

Cons

  1. Stitching quality could be better
  2. These are not the best for meatier legs

The LRD Athletic Shorts are a popular budget training short sold through Amazon. These shorts have a price point of $32.99 and have a lot of great features for their overall price.

Me Testing the LRD Athletic Shorts fit

I try to keep in mind that cheaper workout shorts typically won’t deliver the same quality as premium shorts, so when assessing budget shorts I’m constantly looking for which pairs give me the most “premium feel” which is an area where the LRD Athletic Shorts deliver on.

These shorts have a lot of the same bells and whistles as some of the more premium training shorts on this list. For example, these shorts have a compression liner with a phone pocket, a back zipper pocket, and a shell with decent mobility.

For the guy on a budget, I think the LRD Athletic Shorts work pretty well for lifting and cross-training. My pair have done a pretty good job throughout all of my tests and they do have a slightly more premium look to them which I like.

Cons

Why I Chose the Indestructible Short

The GORUCK Indestructible Training Shorts have proven to be a really strong option for guys with bigger thighs and glutes. These shorts have a lot more stretch in their shell than most of their peers and the leg gusset isn’t super aggressive.

GORUCK Indestructible Training Shorts Stretch

With their more spacious shell and compression liner that isn’t super restrictive, I could see these shorts working well for muscular legs. I have found that the liner can ride up when you’re first beginning sessions, but it soon settles in and becomes a non-issue.

These shorts have proven to be really strong performers for lifting, cross-training, and outdoor workouts. I think if you want shorts for doing a little bit of everything on a weekly basis, then you’ll enjoy the Indestructible Training Shorts.

On top of this, these shorts are made in the USA and they come with GORUCK’s Scars Lifetime Guarantee. This essentially covers the shorts from manufacturers’ defects and you break them down you can send them back to GORUCK to be fixed or replaced at their discretion.

Why I Chose the Tactical Short

The Ten Thousand Tactical Short is a solid model for outdoor sessions and it was designed in partnership with the United States Special Operations Forces. If you’re into outdoor workouts, and more specifically hiking and rucking, then you’ll enjoy this short. 

Ten Thousand Tactical Short for hiking and rucking

This is one of my favorite shorts for tackling these tasks and that’s for three key reasons. First, the Tactical Short comes with a ripstop shell which I think is fantastic for resisting abrasion and snags from things like branches and rocks.

Plus, this material is lightweight and dries fairly fast so this is also a great model for doing light swims if you have creeks, rivers, or lakes around. Second, the thicker waistband on this model provides a nice secure fit across the board and the internal drawstrings never tend to come undone during outdoor sessions.

Third and lastly, the zipper pockets in this model are pretty clutch when you bring your phone, wallet, and keys with you during these sessions as security is huge to ensure you don’t lose your stuff when exploring and training.

Coach Jake’s Buying Tips

Buying Tip 1 — Find the Material Blend You Like

Most companies will utilize a blend of materials to build their workout shorts. In general, you can expect to see blends of spandex/elastance, polyester, and knit materials.

Spandex/elastance will give a short it’s stretchier and more mobile feeling, knits will usually indicate and suggest breathability, and polyester will typically influence things like comfort and durability.

Buying Tip 2 — Hit Me With Questions!

Finding new gym shorts can be like the Wild West, especially on the internet. I’ve hand-tested and vetted every pair of workout shorts in this list so please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have questions about how a short performs and fits.

I’d suggest leading with two things when searching for new gym shorts. First, assess how you plan to use your shorts. For example, are you a CrossFitter or recreational lifter? This can be huge for a short’s performance and durability.

Second, assess your dimensions and fit preferences. I know, measuring your waist, hips, and quads can be tedious, but I promise it will save you so much time when it comes to finding shorts that fit your anatomy best.

Compression Liner Vs Non-Liner

If you’re wondering whether you should go for a short with a compress liner or if you should go linerless, then it’s a good idea to consider two things. First, do you like bringing less with you to the gym?

Go Compression Liner If…

I love having compression liners built into my shorts because it helps me worry about fewer articles of clothing when I’m packing my gym bag.

Plus, I never have to worry about losing compression liners in the wash or my other clothes. Additionally, not every compression liner waistband works with different shorts, so this helps take the thought out of planning gym outfits.

If you’ve ever run into this, then you know how annoying it can be to constantly adjust your shorts while training. If you want to hedge your bets for your shorts fitting well and being a minimalist with apparel, then I’d suggest going with a liner if you can.

Lululemon Pace Breaker Short (1)

Go With No Compression Liner If…

The only caveat to shorts with liners built-in is that they’re often not the most comfortable for daily wear as the liner can feel a bit restrictive. Second, I’d consider if you prefer a compression liner for a specific reason.

A lot of times when I talk to lifters and athletes that prefer having their own compression liner it’s for a specific reason. This may be an internal phone pocket on the leg, a preferred fit, or another reason. If this sounds like you, then a linerless short will likely be your best call.

Should I go 5″, 7″ or 9″ Inseam?

When looking into different inseam options there are two aspects to consider. The first is your preference and what you like with your shorts. The second is how the inseam can support or hinder performance.

An example here would be a long inseam short used for long-distance running. In this context, the short could hinder performance due to chafing and feeling heavy after longer sessions. This is also why you never see marathoners running in long shorts.

ten thousand vs vuori short sizing and fit

In the image above, I’m wearing a 7″ inseam and in all of my individual men’s workout shorts reviews, I discuss sizing to give you an idea of how certain shorts will look.

Below are the most popular inseam options and some of my thoughts on each regarding workout performance.

Go With a 5″ Inseam If…

  • Pros: Great for running, and mobility, and is a breathable, minimalist option.
  • Cons: Not always the best for strength work including deadlifts, cleans, and snatches.

Go With a 7″ of 7.5″ Inseam If…

  • Pros: Best of all worlds type of short and long enough to be versatile, but short enough for cardiovascular training.
  • Cons: It may also be too short for some tall lifters doing things like deadlifts and cleans.

Go With a 9″ Inseam If…

  • Pros: Best for protecting the thighs from friction.
  • Cons: Not the lightest or most versatile option compared to 5″ and 7″.

If you want to get an idea of the inseam in a new pair of shorts that you’re thinking about investing in, then do the following.

Take a pair of your current shorts and lay them on the ground. Grab a measuring tape from the crotch to the end of the short. This is your current inseam and now you can mentally take or add inches accordingly.

Why You Should Trust That Fit Friend

Every pair of workout shorts in this round-up has been hand-tested by a singular product expert (me, Jake Boly). I buy every pair of shorts that I review and I test shorts independently on my own with a regimen of tests I’ve formulated over the last 6+ years.

These tests are designed to push a product’s performance in different training verticals and to test a short’s overall durability. I vary my training a lot so I’m constantly trying to find the nuance that exists between different gym shorts.

For context, I’ve been reviewing men’s workout shorts for years and have spent my fair share of money on shorts that have exceeded my expectations and shorts that have let me down regarding my investment. I buy the products I review to stay objective.

I do not take sponsorships from companies and every short in this list was included because it’s performed exceptionally well throughout my review tests and processes. Reach out if you ever have questions.

Takeaway Thoughts

There are a lot of great men’s workout shorts on the market and it can be overwhelming sifting through all of the options. These are some of my favorite training shorts to date and every model included in this list I’ve personally trained in and thoroughly enjoy.

  1. Let’s get ASRV in the mix too. Nice to see these reviews! I’ve been spinning my wheels looking for the perfect 7″ all-rounder tactical short with a good liner for 4+ years.

  2. Hi,

    Thanks for your reviews! Quick question on the Legends Luka shorts… I know you said you were a 32-33 waist and the medium was a good fit. I’m a 33-34 and was wondering if you think the medium would be best, or should I size up??? I’ve been boarder line medium/large with all of my shorts lately and if I’m going to spend this much money on a pair of shorts, I want to make sure the fit will be right.

    Thanks for your help! It’s appreciated much!!
    Dan

    1. Hey Dan — I’d probably go with the large in the Luka. I feel like the medium may run too snug for you. Def keep me posted regarding your sizing, please! Helps me with future suggestions, too!

  3. The answer is probably “whatever tshirt fits you and feels comfortable” but do you have any recommendations for shirts for training, particularly weight training? I had to toss all the slick synthetic shirts because they just didn’t give me enough grip in back squats and it was messing up my form. I’ve tried A7 grip shirts but they’re pricey. Is there a durable shirt that’s some blend, fits an athletic build without being too baggy, and comes in cheap?

    1. Hey Matt! Man, you’re not alone here — I feel like the market is seriously lacking for a shirt that tackles strength training specific asks while also not costing an arm and a leg. Tbh, when I’m squatting or benching, I’ll just wear normal cotton/polyester shirts and these do a pretty good job at preventing slip especially if you get the right blend. I’m not a fan of the pricier grip shirts either. Let me rack my brain and look around at what’s worked for me in the past and I’ll get back to you!
