US First Lady Michelle Obama paid a visit to Ellen DeGeneres‘ show, with the latter challenging Mrs. Obama in a push-up contest on air in front of her audience, as shown in the video below.

As noted at US news sites on Thursday, February 2, 2012, Mrs. Obama was on Ellen‘s show that night to promote her “Let’s Move” campaign against childhood obesity, with the TV host later asking her about her daily exercise.

Moments later, the 54-year-old TV host asked the the 48-year old First Lady on how many push-ups she can and proposed a push-up contest with her, which made the audience cheered.

“I was just wondering if you can do more push-ups than I can?” Ellen DeGeneres asked Mrs. Obama, who replied jokingly, “It depends on how your back is — I know you have these back issues.”

Later, the two stood up and agreed to do it together at the same time, dropped on the floor and started doing some push-ups, with the crowd counting aloud and cheering for both of them.

Apparently, Ellen stopped for a moment after she reached the 15 mark but continued until 20 push-ups and eventually gave up, with Michelle Obama doing it continuously and stopped after hitting the 25 count.

“That was amazing,” DeGeneres said, as the two hugged each other and the crowd applauded Mrs. Obama, who said that she just stopped and notably looking more relax than Ellen after the push-up.

“I thought it wouldn’t be good to show up the First Lady, so I stopped. Because I thought, this looks bad that I’m going to beat her. I’m 54, and you’re 48.” Ellen said jokingly, but noted that the First Lady was truly amazing.
