Michelle Obama’s Abs Were Clearly Chiselled By The Gods
By WH Staff | Oct 22, 2019
We’ve been fawning over Michelle Obama’s arms since practically forever, so it wasn’t a huge surprise to learn the rest of her bod is equally as ripped. The former First Lady’s abs, on the other hand, are so darn impressive they deserve their own IG account. Don’t believe us? See for yourself.
Earlier this week, the 55-year-old shared a snap of herself on Instagram holding a medicine ball high above her head while simultaneously doing a lunge. Note the sneaky six-pack peeking out between her sports bra and tights?
“It doesn’t always feel good in the moment. But after the fact, I’m always glad I hit the gym. How did you all take care of yourself on this #SelfCareSunday?” she captioned the post.
Cue all the ab appreciation.
“Ok Michelle Abs, we see you!” model Ashley Graham commented. “Oh wow,” another follower said.
So… What’s her secret?
For starters, she’s big on consistency. In fact, Michelle’s trainer Cornell McClellan told NPR that she never skips a sweat sesh.
“One of the things that I noticed from [the Obamas] and from herself initially is that this was something that was important and that she prioritised and found a way to fit it in,” he said. “And I remember that when I was working with her all those many years ago, you know, she would be in the gym sometimes at 4:30, 5 o’clock in the morning.”
SoulCyle is a key part of her routine too. Back in the day, she shared on Twitter that she often does it with her daughters, Malia and Sasha. “I love it when my girls join me for a little SoulCycle. We all are in the dark, moving to the beat on the bikes. We love it,” she wrote.
Even her average food fare is super healthy. According to PEOPLE, she likes to pack her own lunches (her fave is turkey chilli) and she always makes sure to load up on veggies at every meal.

Cry with joy that is. Byeee, DOMS! Hello, fitness gains.
And all you need are a pair of dumbbells.
And yes, there's a difference.
WYLD bikes aren’t just a sustainable alternative to carbon and graphite frames. Rather, the range of bamboo bicycles is a reminder of the power of business to be a catalyst for change, offering people new ways to commute that honour their values and are easy on the environment, too.
Few things can rival the euphoria of a sweat session. But as the saying goes, when it comes to levelling up your fitness routine, sometimes it’s a matter of training smarter, not necessarily harder.
