First Lady Michelle Obama isn’t blowing hot air when she stumps on the importance of physical fitness. She proved Wednesday that she’s got the moves to back it up.

During a taping of the Ellen Degeneres Show, Obama accepted – and won – a challenge by Degeneres to see who could do more push-ups on the spot.

Both women flung off their dress coats and hit the floor, pumping up and down, side-by-side to cheers from the crowd.

“How many was that for her?” asked Degeneres after both women had finished. “Twenty five.”

“I just stopped,” said a smiling Mrs. Obama.

“And I thought it wouldn’t be good to show up the first lady,” retorted Degeneres. “So, I stopped because I thought this looks bad that I’m going to beat her. And I’m 54 and you’re 48. Let’s make sure we know.”
