Athletes come in many forms

I saw this on facebook today and it is worth checking out.  This is a photographic comparison of all different athletes from all different sports compared side by side.  It is amazing the way the body responds to different training stimulus all geared towards one very specific goal.  We are ALL different body types and that is AWESOME!

This is only an excerpt from the book Athlete.  May have to hunt this down, here is the amazon link.

If you happened across this blog today before you hit the gym, you are indeed lucky.  Check out the video below and enjoy a new PR today.
