To protect your male testicles from injury.

A jockstrap will support your testicles and your penis so they do not move around a lot when you are playing sports or when you are working. A "cup-jockstrap" is worn by guys when they play sports or when they are doing construction work. The "cup" is made of hard plastic and is made to protect the testicles and the penis. (There are some cups which are made of hard metal.) The "cup" fits into a jockstrap that has a "pouch" made into it to hold the cup in place.

Some guys like to wear a jockstrap or a cup-jockstrap because it feels real good on them, or because they think it makes them look better. There are many different kinds of jockstraps and cups (or brands of), and some guys like to wear jockstraps or cups all the time, even when they are not playing sports or working. There is nothing wrong with them wanting to do that, any more than guys who like to wear spandex briefs all the time.

It is easier to run in a jock strap, because they don't stick to you when you sweat.
There are two reasons you should wear a jockstrap. The first would be to hold a cup in place, to protect you from direct hits. The other reason to wear a jockstrap is to keep your genitals pulled tightly against your body, so they don't bounce or twist when you run, jump, or workout.
You wear a jockstrap because it supports and protects the male genitals during sports or workout. The cup and supporter (Jockstrap) Protect the groin from any serious or minor injury to the groin during sports like football and Baseball.

Beats me. A jock strap isn't sturdy enough to offer any support for the body, people usually doesn't dance around much while lifting weights, and you're unlikely to be hit in the groin while weight lifting. OTOH, it's unlikely to be a problem. If you like wearing jock straps, go ahead.
