Is it necessary to wear a supporter in the gym?

Fitness Myths
No, it’s a myth.

Supporters are useful while playing sports where you have a risk of getting hit in the groin. For example, cricketers use the support of abdominal guards. In cycling, the athletes' costumes are designed in such a way that their groins stay protected. And for the same reason, in Indian culture, the use of “Langot” was started for KUSHTI. But, with time people started connecting it to hernia. They started believing that if supporters are not used, their bodies become prone to developing a hernia. If this was really true, almost everyone in foreign gyms would have developed this problem.
