Over the past few days, a number of people have sent me a video of the push-up competition that went down on the daytime show, Ellen, between the show’s host and the first lady, Michelle Obama.
Although one of the women technically did a greater number of push-ups, quite the debate has arisen online surrounding the form used in performing the exercise.
To be perfectly honest, regardless of how ideal their form may have been, for women in their late 40’s to mid 50’s to easily do more push-ups (a very popular exercise among men) than most guys in their 20’s and 30’s is certainly inspiring – not to mention intimidating.
Check the video for yourself:
