    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. Sexy and powerful, we give major props to photographer Art Streiber for these beautiful images – and for not breaking down into tears of jealousy (like we basically did).

    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. If your boss gets mad that you're ogling nakey pics at work, we recommend quitting and spending your savings on a trip to London to see the real thing. (ESPN)
