Pink Flamingo

This is my nickname for a guy at the gym where my new class started last night. It seems he is always there, morning, noon, and night. Every time I see him he is in his tight tank top and his high$ shoes. He loves the mirror and himself very much. The reason for the name is simple. Every exercise I have seen him do, he does on one leg. I'm talking everything, lateral raises, bicep curls, tricep push downs and everything else under the sun. So I would bet that he read an article in Muscle & Fitness about "functional training". His answer do it on one leg. My favorite thing about him is that when he takes his leg off the floor he hooks it behind his calf on his support leg. Which if you try it is almost as stable as standing on two feet. It always amazes me how people interpret things. God only knows what he would come up with if he started training with kettlebells from watching youtube. Then again I have seen those people too and they are just as messed up. Long live the PINK FLAMINGO!!
