In this video, first lady Michelle Obama accepts her husband President Barack Obama's challenge to show him five ways she could move. It's all to promote her "Let's Move" campaign. And she definitely MOVED!
To start her workout, the first lady used a jump rope and some fancy leg work to get her heart rate up.
And while jumping rope, McClellan advised, "Keep your elbows tucked in. You don't want to use a whole arm swing... nice and easy turns of the wrist." He continued, "This is very good for hand-eye coordination, for timing, and things of that nature."
For the second exercise, the first lady used a medicine ball while performing crunches. She also mixed it up to add different variations to work out all parts of her ab muscles.
Then, Mrs. Obama's third move was the in-and-out squat with the bench. She CLEARLY crushed it.
Her trainer called this "an explosive movement that adds explosiveness to the quads and legs."
Can you believe it? She's not done yet. The fourth part of her intense workout involved 35-pound dumbbells. She's not playin' around, OK?
He continued, "If you are using heavy weights, you should have someone to assist you in this exercise."
These boxing gloves were ~very~ necessary for the fifth and final step to the first lady's killer workout. Her arms were obviously ready for this.
Her trainer said they like to use boxing "for conditioning, hand-eye coordination, transference of power, learning how to move from point A to point B."
