All Joffrey Lupul - ESPN The Magazine Body Issue

from Morty Ain of ESPN The Magazine,

Why did you decide to pose?

JL: Being a hockey player, I want to experience as many things as possible, and posing naked in a magazine is certainly not something I ever thought I'd do. I think professional athletes have natural abilities and there are things our bodies can do that other people's can't. But we also put in a lot of work -- on and off the ice -- and that's what the issue is about: Seeing how people look without their gear on.

What do you like about your body?

JL: We train a lot of lower body and core, so I think my leg strength and ability to generate power with my legs and core is the thing I'm most proud of. Every day when we go out and practice, we're always in that same position of legs bent and ass halfway down to the ice, almost like we're a speedskater or a skier. Everything I do, I try and do with that in mind: low center of gravity, stay low to the ice and make myself harder to knock over.
