    Not quite sure why Brad Richards was in there---more typically fit was last years Ryan Kesler as in last year's edition - Brad seems a little OOS here....by NHL standards

    I have conditioned myself to loathe everything ESPN does, and this magazine publicity stunt to drive up sales is pathetic. It means their own content won't stand on their own so they have to resort to stuff like this.

    They constantly work out and exercise, so of course they're going to have great bodies. They work hard for them.

    I agree; I mean they look good and they are showing off their bodies; but I think it would have looked just fine with swimsuits/trunks, etc as well.

    When they make a comment like "where we stop to admire the vast potential of the human form and unapologetically stand in awe of the athletes who've pushed their physiques to profound frontiers."

    These people have not pushed their physiques to profound frontiers.

    Get Phil Heath, Kai Green, Jai Cutler, Branch Warren up there. Those kids are pushing the boundaries of physique.

    Even in the natural division I train with the current world number 2 and their physiques DESTROY these guys.
