Score the First Lady's First-Class Arms

What's the secret to Michelle Obama's toned arms that have left us trying endless pull-ups, push-ups and shoulder presses in the weight room? Not much anymore thanks to the Today Show and Women's Health magazine. They spilled the beans to reveal the First Lady's workout straight from her long-time trainer Cornell McClellan. And if you're determined to sport similar guns, you can work your way through the 9-Minute Arm Workout, a two-move super set that works the biceps and triceps hardcore.

Fact: Mrs. Obama has been working with McClellan since 1997. Since that time he's put her through 1,872 workouts.

Fact: McClellan runs Naturally Fit, a fitness studio in Chicago's West Loop neighborhood, that Mrs. Obama started frequenting more than 12 years ago.

Fact: Her workouts took place as early as 5:30 a.m.

Fact: McClellan puts Mrs. Obama through a full-body workout complete with lunges, bench presses and more to work multiple muscle groups. Thanks to McClellan her training "includes strength, cardiovascular and flexibility training."
