Yeah...isn't even really that important what it says, so as long as it sparkles. Could say, "Certified Badass MMA World Champion" and I'm still going to giggle (probably in private if in fact individual is a certified badass MMA world champion).

Same giggle reaction would go for any clothing utilizing rhinestones or any other type of bedazzling accessory.

Clearly he is a follower of Tamara's school of glitter & lifting! Nothing wrong with that.

Hot pink lifting chalk? If it's your own barbell that you have to clean, then go for it That might actually help me lift better, since it might get me angry! :P

If I ever find pink weightlifting chalk in my gym, I shall track down the perpetrator and beat them with an orange.

Back in my track and XC days we used to workout in the Pink Lady jackets that we "liberated" from the set of Grease.
