Our First Lady (known for her well toned arms), Michelle Obama bested talk show host Ellen Degeneres in a push up challenge on her show set to air February 2nd. Ellen couldn’t resist joking with the FLOTUS, asking how many push-ups she could do. Michelle states that she knows that Ellen has “these back issues” so the true question is, how many can ELLEN do?
The pair shed their jackets and hit the set in a head on push up challenge. Michelle went on to beat Ellen with 25. Ellen gave a good showing, considering the fact that she’s 54 and our First Lady is 48. The truth is, Ellen’s got 20 years on me and I can barely complete 5!
Mrs. Obama has been very busy promoting her Let’s Move fitness program and healthy eating options for all American’s – especially school aged children.
