Talk about healthy. I'll bet anything and anyone that Michelle could beat the hell out of most of us guys here on this forum. Carry on Michelle Obama. Michelle Obama Does 25 Push-Ups - ABC News First Lady Michelle Obama isnt blowing hot air when she stumps on the importance of physical fitness. She proved Wednesday that shes got the moves to back it up. During a taping of the Ellen Degeneres Show in Los Angeles for an episode that will air this afternoon, Obama accepted and won a challenge by Degeneres to see who could do more push-ups on the spot. Both women flung off their dress coats and hit the floor, pumping up and down, side-by-side to cheers from the crowd. How many was that for her? asked Degeneres after both women had finished. Twenty five. I just stopped, said a smiling Mrs. Obama. And I thought it wouldnt be good to show up the first lady, retorted Degeneres. So, I stopped because I thought this looks bad that Im going to beat her. And Im 54 and youre 48. Lets make sure we know. The first lady appeared on the show to promote her Lets Move! campaign which encourages physical activity to help fight obesity. Obama told Degeneres she works out for an hour and a half every day in the morning, including cardio activity, weight lifting and plyo-metric exercises. As for other insights into daily life at the White House, the first lady said the President needs some help keeping his bedroom neat. Does he pick up his socks? asked Degeneres. No, no he doesnt, said Obama. You know, he thinks hes neat, but he has people who help him. And Im like, You know its not you thats neat. Its the people who pick up your socks. Those are the neat people.
