ESPN has taken overexposure to an entirely different level with their upcoming hot annual Body Issue scheduled to hit newsstands on Friday.

Some of this nation’s top athletes are artfully photographed in their chiseled birthday suits doing what they do best. The class of 2014, whose bodies are clearly not objectified in the popular magazine issue, features the likes of such enviable physiques as tennis superstar Venus Williams (pictured above), whose iconic five-time Wimbledon champion body has been the vessel that has led to her record-breaking career.

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch (pictured with football) made the cut as well as he strikes a pose with football that is oh so familiar and commanding.  Lynch, who is apparently quite comfortable with all that he’s been blessed with physically, shared with Seattle PI how much he is enamored with his body, “I’m still gonna let my body do the talking for me.  I’m cool with my body. I love my body. I wouldn’t trade it for no other body.”

But Texas Ranger first baseman Prince Fielder (pictured with bat)  is reportedly the breakout star of the popular issue. The tribal tattooed 5’11, 275-pounder defends the fact that he lacks a 12-pack, telling the Detroit Free Press, “You don’t have to look like an Under Armour mannequin to be an athlete,” he says. “A lot of people probably think I’m not athletic or don’t even try to work out or whatever, but I do. Just because you’re big doesn’t mean you can’t be an athlete. And just because you work out doesn’t mean you’re going to have a 12-pack. I work out to make sure I can do my job to the best of my ability. Other than that, I’m not going up there trying to be a fitness mode.”

Even with big feet and corns on practically each toe, 6’1,” 160-pound WNBA’s Angel McCoughtry (pictured) had no qualms about showing her all in the Body Issue, but it took a while to get here. Ranked as one of women’s basketball’s best players, McCoughtry was surprisingly once ashamed of her feet, but now, she is stepping proudly in them telling ESPN, “As a kid, I started getting smaller-sized shoes and squishing my feet in to them so people would stop saying that I had big feet. I can’t tell you how uncomfortable that was, always having my toes just scrunched int o tiny shoes.  To this day, I regret ever doing that….”

The hot issue also features the likes of such athletes as boxing icon Bernard Hopkins, bobsledder Aja Evans, and NBA’er Serge Ibaka as well as countless others.
