If you've ever wondered if professional athletes' bodies are really as rock hard and perfect as they appear in their uniforms, then the new ESPN Body Issue showing several sports figures in the buff should clear things up a bit.

The issue hits newsstands on Friday and showcases 27 of the most in shape bodies in the sports world, from Olympic contenders to league professionals (although it's kind of a bummer that David Beckham didn't make an appearance).

The issue will be sold with six different covers, all depicting some of the world's finest and fittest men and women wearing nothing but their birthday suits.

Take a look at the photos below for a sneak peek of what you can expect from the new ESPN Body Issue (and try not to drool).
