If Barack Obama Can Do It So Can You…

Posted on

It’s Black History month; I’ll be dedicating my post this week to historians and how they made a difference in our lives, while incorporating current events. We all have very busy schedules, but trying to fit fitness into our daily routine can be very challenging. It you look at it this way maybe it’ll help you think about getting into better shape for your mind, body and soul. If our president Barack Obama can do it so can you! He works out six days a week for 45 minutes. Looking to get sculpted arms like Barack? Try his arm routines: standing triceps push downs, lying triceps presses, shoulder presses, overhead dumbbell extensions. He also occasionally does plyometric and ab workouts. Don’t forget he loves sports like golf, which he’s played 100 times since he’s taken office… and basketball, which he loves.

You can do all these things with a little dedication and hard work. Nobody said it’ll be easy, although with a determination to win you’ll be able to do it too. Join a sports team, start a fitness program with a friend, and make sure you’re eating healthy. If our 51-year-old president can manage to workout while running our country; what’s really your excuse?

P.S I’ve still been getting up at 6am working out with a protein shake to start my week. How about you?
