Hands down, no questions asked our first lady Michelle Obama is simply the best. So on her special day, I thought I would give you the ultimate gift from our countries ultimate fit girl. So whether you are 29, 39, 49 or 59….you too can keep it fit and fine.
Rise and Shine. While most of us are entering our second dream Michelle Obama is up and running. Literally. She works out ever day starting at either 4:30 or 5:00 a.m.; getting her sweat on before Sasha and Malia (and POTUS) wake up. Can you say, “No excuses!” People who sweat first thing in the morning are more likely to stick to their workout routine. Less conflicts, less distractions….more results.
Short and Sweet. So now that you are up before the sun, here is the key: Get it in and knock it out. Short high intensity workouts are where it’s at. Not only will you save major time but you’ll also burn major calories. Michelle’s daily workout takes 1 hour max and that is all you need too. So come out the gate strong, resting only when needed and get on to your day sis.
Strong Arm It. The first thing we all think of when we think of our first lady is here arms of steel. You think she came out the womb that way? Nope. She works very hard for those highly coveted stems. Her secret? Dynamic multi functional movement. There are 23 muscles in each arm (not including the shoulder or the hands) so the best exercises are the ones that involve several of them at once. So next time you are getting your sweat on add a overhead press to your bicep curls or hit the floor and bang out some push ups.
