Michelle Obama Is Probably Fitter Than You


The First Lady shows off her superior upper body strength on 'Ellen' and puts us all to shame in the process.

Remember elementary school PE class, when your gym teacher tested you on how many push-ups and pull-ups you could do? Um, it's a good thing Michelle Obama wasn't in your class, because she would've owned you.

Check out this vid from Ellen, where Ellen and Michelle go head to head in a climactic push-up battle. When Ellen finally pulls out of the competition, you get the sense that Michelle is just getting started. Like, she could probably do 50 more with Ellen sitting on top of her back.

Also, props to her for doing an hour and a half workout every morning! Girl gets up at 5:30 or 6 and knocks out a routine involving weights, plymetrics (whatever that is), and, of course, pushups. That's pretty much the definition of winning.

Next, we'd love to see Michelle arm wrestle with Sylvester Stallone. My bet is on Michelle, hands-down.
