Nineteen athletes posed in the buff for the ESPN magazine 2016 body issue, and as always, the photos are really, really cool. Like, these photos are clearly not your standard nudie mag jerk-off material—ESPN's body issue is like the surprisingly progressive cousin to the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, showcasing the incredible and diverse bodies belonging to the best athletes in the world, as well as giving readers a glimpse into the lifestyle these athletes have to lead to maintain their physical excellence.

They're all strong as f*ck, but because of the requirements of their different sports (and, for some of the athletes, because of the specialization of their positions), their bodies all look dramatically different—and also perfect in the sense that they're capable of amazing feats you could only dream of.

It’s amazing that Vince Wilfork, at 325 pounds, and Emma Coburn, at 119 pounds, are both among the best athletes in the world.
