In the heat of summer—and the peak of a global pandemic no less—you’re probably finding yourself in the hurt locker with your workouts. Garage WODs leave you crumpled on the floor, drenched and spent. Outdoor runs around the neighborhood or local track leave you soaked. It’s due, in part, to boiling temps and muggy humidity, but also your unwavering dedication to the grind. After all, there’s no time like isolation to get in the best shape of your life.

What It Is

The Interval Short is Ten Thousand’s most versatile bottom. It’s not as freeing as thigh-baring split shorts, which are de rigueur for runners; but the four-way stretch, mobile shell, and leg gusset certainly won’t hold you back during 200-meter repeats or a long, steady run. It’s also available in a 7- or 9-inch inseam with an optional inner liner, making it a killer option for guys seeking a little more modesty. These specs also allow them to cross over into CrossFit, powerlifting, HIIT, and pretty much any other discipline.
