This is the way to dry body that it very unhealthy. And of course many hours of training on exercise equipment.

  1. They do not drink water for the last week before a competition? That could kill a person, especially with the exercising! I hope this means they drink other things, just not plain water.

  2. I demand you place black boxes over the men’s nipples just as you do women’s- I find viewing them to be… disturbing. Thank you for your fairness.
