LOLL, I don't have enough hair to try that



He's hardcore must workout all the time


Perfectly possible considering the shape they were already in and the effort they put in.

already at a pretty low body fat and just lost some pounds over 6 weeks to decrease body fat to expose some muscle underneath?

yes possible.

also lol at lighting/tans in after pic, that helps to give the impression that its made a bigger impact as well.

The best one out of the lot is Ben Shephard though, mirin his cut (no homo)

Also Chris Kamara looks like if he tenses any more he will burst a vessel somewhere

It's more a trickery of lighting and what a body looks like post workout, which is why in Bodybuilding the difference between Pre and Post workout is the difference between an average body and a unique body, some people double up in size after a workout.

Good lighting, nice shadows, nice full body workout, and they look dehydrated - Of course they've probably lost a few lbs, in 6 weeks you can lose over half a stone.

More a ignorance of humans than anything lol. In one mirror I can look ripped because of the lighting, in another I can look normal, same thing.

Sheppard has always been in top shape, but little changes like dehydration, post workout and lighting can make the difference between the first and the last.
