    Before you go all crazy with the picture posting (given that any craziness happens), give my rant a little read. Or a large read. Maybe medium...? This could very well be a tl;dr moment, but bear with me.

    Compared to the tubby spectrum of the American population, I'm pretty happy with my body. And in the past few months, I've been even happier with what it can do. I can run faster, am more flexible, and - even with my lack of strength training recently - am stronger than ever. It's really nice, seeing that pushing myself in a competitive way (to become better performance-wise) has helped me reach the best shape of my life.

    Then I go to a gay bar, or log onto here, and my growing happiness deflates a little. Suddenly, every guy seems to have the perfect body. Their pecs are bulging, accompanied by biceps that are literally straining their sleeves and gorgeous 'V'-shaped backs that look like they were chiseled out of stone. And that's when I start to become unsure. Am I doing the wrong thing, training solely to become a better performer rather than creating a more beautiful physique? Do guys find "better performers" sexy?

    So I come to you, Realjockers. Post pictures of athletes that you find sexy. And I realize body-builders are athletes, but I mean the kinds of athletes that don't need to build a certain muscle to balance out their image. The ones that, in terms of the "perfect" physique, are imperfect. The ones that train to become better performers, and in the process, sculpt their bodies into something that makes you weak in the knees.

    In short, I need you to make me feel like things are alright.

    Here's an example, taken from a Men's Journal cover.

    Okay, I hope I am doing this right. I just saw "Picture Thread: Sexy Athletes" and then a bunch words so to save time I just went back and reread the thread title.

    Random guys from tumblr, whether they're real athletes or not is up to you to decide.

    The Terp in me just twitched. But I'll still admit he's a handsome man.

    Nick Symmonds, the 800 meter runner. I dunno, the guy is just very attractive and also incredibly fast.

    No one is as dedicated to training (in all aspects of fitness) as GSP, and it pays off. HIs level of focus and work ethic put him on top of my list.

    I give you Landon Donovan, not the biggest arms or whatever, but his conditioning must be outta this world. I have more to come, as a sprinter a whole boatload of fit athletes come to mind.

    Edit: I have no idea why this picture is massive.

    You look great to me. I'll vote for Keith Malloy though--hot, talented and seems like a genuinely nice guy

    He looks good but his biceps are really lacking. He should work them out because his chest, traps, and abs aren't bad at all.

    And although not particularly the most attractive player, I'll admit that I may have an all out thing for Andrew Luck. Probably because of his architecture/engineering major and the fact that he's a Heisman candidate (and because a part of me thinks that he's America's answer to Gareth Thomas), I'd go for it
