Whenever I see those exercise equipment commercials on TV, I'm always suspicious of the before-and-after models that show the amazing results you'll get from working out "for just 15 minutes a day!!!". They're obviously professional athletes, for one thing. But the cynic in me always wonders if the after shot is some professional marathonner or bodybuilder in his prime, and the before shot is the same guy then kept in a darkened room for two months on a strict diet of burgers and fries.
Turns out I wasn't cynical enough by half. Physical Trainer Andrew Dixon created the series of photographs below of an incredible transformation from schlub to stud ... in the course of just one hour.
It's amazing what you can do with lighting, hair and wardrobe, and just sticking your gut out for the camera. Read more about how he concocted this deceptive yet educational photo series (and see an even more dramatic one-day before and after shot) at the Huffington Post.
That's all for this week — enjoy your weekend, and we'll be back on Monday.
