The secret to strong-arming Michelle Obama
First lady Michelle Obama should be able to strong-arm just about anyone with those sculpted biceps that have been the talk of the town.
Women’s Health magazine has let the cat out of the bag about how Obama achieved those upper arms that she confidently bares and are the envy of the scared-sleeveless set.
Cornell McClellan, Obama’s personal trainer, tells the magazine it took 1,872 workouts since 1997, most of them at 5:30 a.m. (hmm let’s weigh the options — sleep or muscles, sleep or muscles, sleep…)
And the workout might include lunges, bench presses, hip raises, rope-jumping, kickboxing, and calisthenics (we’re exhausted at the thought, time for a latte).
Perhaps President Barack Obama could use his wife’s well-toned arms in the weeks ahead to turn the tide his way — think headlocks on naysayers to healthcare reform.
