Not only the magazine features some pretty hot images of Danell Leyva but it also features an interview.

What’s the most impressive thing you can do with your body?

On the high bar, I can do the Jam Hop. I put my legs in and when I bring them out I kind of hop out of the position and go into a handstand. It’s in every high-bar routine of mine, and no one else in the world can really do that. I think it has a lot to do with flexibility and strength at the same time. I’m also pretty flexible. As a male gymnast, you lose a lot of flexibility as you grow up, but I’m still pretty flexible. My shoulders are really flexible, which you need on the rings or you risk getting hurt. I’m able to get away with a lot of swing skills that not too many people can do. But I can still do splits — that’s kind of weird for a guy.

Read the full interview here.
