Michelle Obama does push-ups during 'Ellen' visit

Posted on

After watching the clip of First Lady Michelle Obama impressively doing push-ups during her visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show without so much as breaking a sweat, I’m starting to think we may have to add one more totally awesome woman to this gallery. Somehow unfazed by Mrs. Obama’s enviable arms and her admission that she works out as early as 5:30 in the morning and for as long as an hour-and-a-half every day, host Ellen DeGeneres still challenged the First Lady to a push-up contest. Check out the full clip below to see who won. And then drop and give me 25. (Comments, of course! Twenty-five comments.)

Anyone else sort of hoping Mrs. Obama will inspire a new take on Air Force One in which the First Lady is the one doing all the butt-kicking? (Of course, they’d have to get her to play the part.) Were you just as impressed by her workout details and push-up abilities? Sound off below, PopWatchers.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show airs on NBC, check local listings for times to watch Mrs. Obama’s visit, which airs today.
