"Girl" Push-ups

The other day at the fitness centre I saw a girl do- I kid you not- this:

(my reenactment)

(?!!?!) I know there are "girl" push-ups and "boy" push-ups and I'm pretty sure that this is supposed to be a "girl" push-up. Unfortunately for this mysterious girl, though, it didn't quite turn out that way. It's more of an elbow workout if anything. Witnessing this made my day, so thank you mysterious girl! (PS- no offense if you do push-ups like this! I'm sure it's working out... something;)

Oh that! ITs a strectch for the Gluteus maximus...a lumbar extender and deltoid contracter...its a brain clot preventer and of all a stupidius maximus...I saw the guy in Gladiator do it!...he was not doing too well.(sorry...on 4 hours of sleep)

Oh trust me you Zabu- this was an attempted push-up! She went through the rest of the push-up motions. Had she just been in the one position for a prolonged period of time, I may have given her the benefit of the doubt and chalked it up to a gluteus maximus stretch, but no siree. This was a "push-up" all the way! =)

Shelley, I think you should pay a visit to the personal trainer nearest you. :)

Yhank you, Julie, I know you said you'd make the story about some "random" girl so that people wouldn't make fun of me. You did a good job, I don't think they caught on at all.
