The website http://www.brosscience.com recently posted a very interesting series of pictures of 45 elite level athletes from a variety of sports (including soccer), wearing nothing but their underwear!
The different types of sports bodies on display, ranging from thin with extremely low body fat and muscle mass (marathon) to heavy set with huge muscle mass and relatively high body fat (weightlifting) are fascinating to see. Among the athletes pictured are World Champions and Olympic medallists, as well as elite professional athletes from a variety of different team and individual sports. What is most unique and impressive about these pictures is that they clearly prove that there is no such thing as having a “fit” body; the most important factor for any athlete (including soccer players) is that their bodies are able to perform optimally.
