The "Dancing with the Stars" Season 14 cast wasn't the only thing unveiled today -- so was Maksim Chmerkovskiy's new bod!

While the dancing professional has always been in shape, he appeared on the streets of L.A. recently looking more fit than ever.

The just-released photos, which were taken before today's announcement, show the shirtless and scruffy star flaunting his ripped physique for photogs during a workout.

Compare those pics with a shot of him last August (below) ... and the difference is clear.

Maksim's partner this year is Melissa Gilbert. Lucky gal!
