What would it look like if men’s and women’s workouts were reversed? Let’s just say that the next time you’re at the gym, you could find yourself having to watch men attempt bent over rows using pink, two-pound dumbbells while checking out their own backsides in the mirror. This is another great comedic video from Yahoo!’s FlipSide series. We previously mentioned their video that hypothesizes what it would be like if women liked football more than men do. This workout video takes the workout stereotypes for men and women and flips them around. A fair warning: there is a scene in the video in which a very large woman leaves a ton of sweat all over a workout machine. Don’t watch that part while eating.
These FlipSide videos always generate a fair amount of discussion. It seems there’s always someone out there to find just about anything offensive, so these videos are no exception. Many hypersensitive types will be quick to point out that the workout activities depicted in this video don’t apply to every man or every women. Everyone knows that. There are men who like yoga and women who like lifting heavy weights. There just seems to be more men who like heavy weights and more women who like yoga. We can laugh about it. It’s okay.
