Michelle Obama Battles Ellen DeGeneres in Push-Up Contest

by at . Comments

First Lady Michelle Obama talks the talk and walks the walk.

When the 48-year-old campaigns for the importance of health and physical fitness, she leads by example, as she proved today on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in L.A.

Michelle Obama accepted a bold challenge by DeGeneres to see who could do the most push-ups, with both women flinging off their dress coats on the spot.

Who won? Watch the video here and see!

“How many was that for her?” asked DeGeneres after tapping out early (but by no means embarrassingly early) and both women had finished. “Twenty five?”

“I just stopped,” said the smiling First Lady.

Sorry Ellen. On the bright side, you hung in there for a while, and there's no way Jay Leno (whose show Michelle visited Tuesday) could do even one.

Very cool of both of them...but I would like to point out (as an Army Vet) that only Ellen was "breaking the plane" in other words...doing a correct push-up...none of Michelle's would have counted if that were a standard army APFT...so go Ellen!
