Michelle bested Ellen by five push-ups and wasn't even out of breath by the end. To be fair, Michelle is six years younger than Ellen. It was definitely an impressive showing by both! The First Lady has been on a tour promoting healthy eating, and she's living proof!

Be sure to tune in to "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Thursday to see Michelle Obama's full interview with Ellen DeGeneres and learn if President Barack Obama picks up his own socks!

Ellen is doing her push ups correctly. She had her feet together and dipped close to the ground.

Actually, speaking as a former Drill Sergeant/Instructor for the United States Army, both women were performing the pushup correctly. When doing a pushup, your feet may be close together or up to 12 inches apart. Also, when performing a pushup
your body should form a straight line from shoulders to ankles. A correct pushup is done by lowering the entire body, as a single unit, until your upper arms are at least parallel to the ground. Then, return to the starting position by raising the entire body until your arms are fully extended. How far a person "dips close to the ground" is not measured when evaluating a pushup.

@seriously? I've always been told from my football coaches, a proper push up is your feet together, back straight and have your chin touch the ground to execute a correct push up. This is television. I'm not sure how the "army" handles push up protocol. so meh.

and you only spread your legs if you are doing one handed push ups for leverage.

While you guys argue about push ups I'd like to just say that was pretty freaking cute.
