    We all struggle to stay healthy and squeeze some exercise into our schedules, but when you've made it to the Olympics, it's safe to say you're doing something right. We've come to acknowledge that there's really no point in comparing our butts with Kerri Walsh's. Still, it's always fun to dream, right? Cue ESPN's Bodies We Want 2012 photo shoot, in which perfectly sculpted Greek Gods Olympians and pro athletes pose nude for some truly awe-inspiring shots.

    Whether you're a couch potato or a fitness guru, these have got to be some of the most inspiring snaps we've seen in a while. Do yourself a favor and check them out.

This has been a struggle for the short-torsoed among us since read
