How Michelle Obama Gets Her Toned Arms

The First Lady Hates Squat Thrusts — Do You?

Much has been said about the first lady's lovely arms. Michelle Obama favors sleeveless fashions that show off her wonderfully toned shoulders.

We all know the Obamas make fitness a priority in their busy lives, and Michelle recently revealed her secret sculpting weapon: squat thrusts. This move gets no love from the first lady. She explained her feelings to People magazine like this:

"It’s jump squats, you go down into a pushup then you jump up,” she said then about her routine. “What does [my trainer] call it? Squat thrusts! That’s the one I really hate. Squat thrusts with a push-up."

I, for one, love this full body move and that is why I consider it one of my March must haves. So how do you feel about squat thrusts?
