How to get Michelle Obama’s arms before she leaves the White House

The first lady is, without a doubt, one of the most impressive women to ever grace the White House. The Princeton grad and Harvard Law alum is inarguably brilliant, accomplished, witty, and has the self-confidence that we all should aspire to have. Oh, and there are also those arms of glory.

Her dedication to keeping fit while maintaining duties as FLOTUS makes her an example that virtually everyone can follow. Sadly, those arms that many have aspired to have will only be in the White House for another year. If you haven’t yet achieved those guns of steel, don’t fear! Here are a few things you can do to be a bit more like Michelle — something that should be on everyone’s New Year’s resolution.

The Strongman Curl

Stand with your feet hip-width apart and your knees slightly bent. Hold a pair of 5 to 15 lb dumbbells at shoulder height, arms held straight out and parallel to the floor, palms facing the ceiling. Keep your upper arms steady and slowly curl the dumbbells in toward your head. Bring the dumbbells back down and repeat seven times.
