Randy Phillips, the gay U.S. airman who became an Internet sensation after filming himself coming out to his father just hours after the repeal of the military's controversial "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy in September, is finding new ways to utilize his newfound fame.

Now, the 21-year-old Phillips hopes to help his viewers kick off their post-holiday workouts with a video of himself demonstrating "Oblique Side Crunches." Though he insists on his YouTube page that he was "nowhere near [his] best physical shape" at the time the clip was shot, the toned, shirtless Phillips -- who reportedly would like to open his own gym one day -- certainly gets our stamp of approval.
