Male beauty: is it truly defined by the puffy bodybuilder, the boyish fashion model or the surgically altered movie star?
In CrossFit, beauty is found in function—moving large loads great distances quickly and efficiently. Without doubt, the bodies required to produce that functional movement are truly impressive machines made up of rippling muscle and taut sinew. CrossFit men are the direct descendants of hunters and warriors whose lives depended on fitness, but they are also living, breathing examples of the classical male ideal form sought after by Renaissance artists.
Media teams at the CrossFit Games took over 100,000 photos, and the CrossFit Journal presents the very best shots here in a tribute to the amazing physiques displayed by top male athletes in one of the world’s most rigorous proving grounds.
