The challenge

The Foundation Short is built to stand up to the wear-and-tear of the hardest workouts. Every element of the short ensures bombproof durability over the long haul, no matter how you wear it. To get the most out of athletes like Cody, whose workouts range from dynamic MMA sessions to powerlifting, distractions aren’t an option. That's why we set Cody up with a pair of shorts that are ready for any type of challenge as he took on a punishing workout.

The Verdict


“The Foundation Short stands up to any type of work. When I’m lifting, they have the most give throughout the entirety of the lift, and when I’m in my MMA sessions, they handle all the punches, kicks, jumps and shuffles I could possibly throw at them. I may be drenched in sweat after, but the shorts are good to go for even more rounds.”
