ESPN's Body Issue has always been a page turner, and in this case it's OK to stare.

The annual issue devoted to admiring the human form is about to hit stands, and BR5 got a sneak peak at what's inside.

This year is no different than others as its chock-full of the finely chiseled bodies of athletes of all sports as they strike a pose for ESPN.

BR5 runs down their top five favorites from this year's issue, and starting at No. 5 is the beautiful and talented Daniela Hantuchova. Daniela was one of the alternate covers.

No 4. is everyone’s favorite party animal, Rob Gronkowski. The New England Patriots' notorious tight end Rob Gronkowski parties hard but he apparently works out just as hard to get that body.

At No. 3 is Abby Wambach. Abby joins the ranks of some of her other popular teammates who've appeared in the issue in years past.

With Hope Solo’s sexy shots last year and Alex Morgan’s SI body paint pics, it seems this whole team is on track to pose in the buff. Most guys are probably hoping that becomes a reality. 

Next up at No. 2 is the Women’s US Volleyball team group shot. The timing couldn't be better for this team as they head into the Summer Olympics in London. They hope to avenge a loss to Brazil in Beijing four years ago.

And our No. 1 is MMA star Rhonda Rousey.

Rhonda may be best known for kicking butt in the Octagon, but after this spread she'll be known for turning heads with her perfect physique and conveniently hidden Olympic rings tattoo.
