Amazing Abs on Hot Dog Eating Champ: How does he do it?

Takeru Kobayashi has made headlines for years as he's garnered a number of awards in eating contests around the world — most notably the annual hot dog-eating contest in Coney Island. And while his look has changed over the years (he's a fan of hair color changes), his abs have stayed rather impressive, considering the fact that he makes his living by overeating. This seems to go against every diet tip from every model I've ever worked with. How does he maintain the definition in his abs while throwing so much junk food down his throat? 
Well, maybe these last two images show some of the risk of this kind of a lifestyle!

Corey: Official Model for Jockstrap Central

If you've ever noticed the high-quality photos used in the ads of my sponsor Jockstrap Central, you've probably noticed one of the company's leading models, Corey. He's 22 years old, with Polish roots and was born and raised in a small town in northern Ontario, Canada. Dirt biking, mountain climbing, snowmobiling, drag racing and surfing are all activities that he avidly enjoys and allow him to live life dangerously.
Although he works for the third-largest media firm in Canada, in marketing and competitive analysis, and holds a university degree in marketing as well as a post-graduate degree in advertising, this model reports that he's completely in love with modeling and is actively seeking as much work as he can.
Corey's girlfriend has encouraged him to pursue modeling further. I'm including a few shots of him here; be sure to head over to Jockstrap Central and check out even more of Corey.

VIDEO: Juan: Art & Yoga

Based in San Juan, Puerto Rico, 23-year-old male model Juan went on his first casting call about six years ago, for a video by reggaeton artist Daddy Yankee. Since then, he has done a variety of photoshotos and runway modeling. His slim good looks work well in a variety of styles, whether it's modeling the latest high fashion on the island, trying on men's underwear or posing for artistic nudes. You'll get to see a bit of all of this in the VIDEO.
Juan began his multifaceted fitness regimen in 10th grade, and this has certainly helped to maintain his slim, youthful good looks. As he describes in the video interview, he runs, lifts weights, cycles and swims, but for this particular shoot he shows some of the benefits of yoga (I'll post a video of him swimming — including some great underwater shots — in the near future, so stay tuned). 
Ordinarily I would probably make photos and videos like this in black and white. But the style here with Juan is so classic, sexy and artistic that I feel it works equally well in color.

Juan's Stats
23 years old
Height: 5'8"
Weight: 135 lbs. 
Waist: 3
Shoe size: 9

Calvin Klein Stages Underwear Show with Help from Jürgen Mayer

Calvin Klein has always been known for its attention-getting underwear advertisements. The current issue of style-conscious Wallpaper Magazine shows that they also know how to stage an attention-getting event. The world-famous purveyor of women's and men's underwear partnered with Jürgen Mayer, an experimental German architect, to create a striking setting to unveil next season's collections. Perfectly formed, muscular, nude male models formed living sculptures against the backdrop of custom-designed architectural elements.
I decided to take this moment to highlight a few favorite shots from Calvin Klein's past campaigns. This company certainly helped set a new standard for appreciating masculine beauty (not to mention helping to jump start the career of Marky Mark, who would later be better known as Mark Wahlberg). If any company knows the value of fit male models in selling product, Calvin Klein certainly does.

Most recently, he showed off his muscular good looks on the cover of Men's Health magazine. In this issue, he shares his tips for maintaining rock-hard abs and perfect muscle tone. His talents are certainly an inspiration to fitness fanatics. I've assembled a few samples of his various looks here.
