ESPN Body Issue is set to hit the newsstands this Friday. ESPN Body Issue features, among others, tennis superstar Serena Williams, mixed martial artist Gina Carano, NASCAR driver Carl Edwards,triathlete Sarah Reinersten ( the first female amputee to compete in the Ironman), Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and NBA's Orlando Magic Dwight Howard. Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones posed for ESPN Body Issue only after plenty of debate. In the end, she decided that a photo showing her semi-buff, from the side, was OK, even if it made her uncomfortable.

Here are some of the athletes featured in ESPN Body Issue:
