It’s obvious that Michelle Obama is in great shape, so why not prove it by doing push-ups on television? Well, that’s exactly what the first lady did today thanks to Ellen DeGeneres.

Today while making an appearance on “Ellen,” Mrs. Obama was challenged to a push-up contest by DeGeneres. The first lady was not shy about showing off her exercise skills by doing 25 push-ups and beating the comedian/talk show host.

In Ellen fashion, DeGeneres joked, “And I thought it wouldn’t be good to show up the first lady. So, I stopped because I thought this looks bad that I’m going to beat her. And I’m 54 and you’re 48. Let’s make sure we know.”

Michelle Obama is all about eating healthy and staying fit, which is one of the reasons she was on “Ellen.” The first lady discussed her “Let’s Move!” campaign, which is all about promoting physical activity to fight obesity. She herself works out for an hour and a half every day.

In addition to her campaign, she is promoting her new book “American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America.” It explores how access to healthy and affordable food promotes better eating habits, all while improving the health of communities.

To see the full interview and see the first lady kick DeGeneres’s butt, watch the video below.

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
