Which Athletes Have the Best Physiques?

I think that linebackers, safeties, and some running backs have amazing physiques that have potential for bodybuilding.

You?

gymnasts

Bodybuilders.

Lol you beat me to it.

I’ll add dieted down Elite Powerlifters in the 242 and upwards.

in the spirit of the olympics & the fact that i had a conversation specifically about this topic, i have to say that sprinters (100 & 200 meter) come in 1st & olympic gymnasts are 2nd. what do you think?

Well…besides them. They ARE athletes though.


I haven’t thought this through much, but I’d put up a vote for Volleyball players.

Whether it’s the ultra-skimpy bikinis or the skin-tight short shorts, these girls seem to always have the most complimentary uniforms to their perfectly formed asses.


Best Male Physique will always go to Mike.
This is not up for debate.

Huge Pecs - Check
Huge Traps - Check
Huge Shoulders - Check
Distended Gut - Check

Perfect.

I’ll second this. I bet that Elite Olympic lifters in the same range would have some pretty awesome physiques if they dieted down as well.

This guy for example would have a pretty damn impressive physique.

Beach volleyball women…

They sweat alot, run around in practically nothing, get sand all over them, and hug and spank each other constantly.

If you asked me the score of any Olympic volleyball match I couldn’t tell you, I couldn’t even tell you what they play to, but I watched all the matches.

They Keep score ?

To be honest, I’m not even sure what they have to get to win.

Lean, but way too small imo.
This was posted in BB after all…
Try the heavier weight-classes.

i would say pro (american) football runningbacks and wide receivers…some quarterbacks as well…most football players are walking around with too much body fat but runningbacks and wide receivers need to be strong and fast so they are lean and strong as hell.

They are definitely amoung the top physical athletes on the planet both in terms of performance and asthetics.

pro rugby players are also pretty impressive.
