I'll work on editing one in. Give me a few days to make sure they are accurate ones. 1 and 2 are going to be hard to find a shirt off pic.

Edited some pics in. The best I could do right now. I tried to use pics that forum members can relate to.
People underestimate the body fat of others and tag them as ripped or cut names to in there mind subconsciously making them feel better about there conditioning.
