On her show last week Ellen DeGeneres challenged Michelle Obama to a push-up battle, and much to everyone’s surprise the First Lady not only accepted the challenge, she won!

“I was just wondering if you can do more push-ups than I can?” Ellen asked Michelle, 48, who promotes the importance of health and physical fitness, before the pair got down on their hands and toes to show off their guns as the audience counted. Ellen got to 20, while Michelle continued to 25, much to the host’s amusement.

Ellen, 54, afterwards joked that she let Michelle win, “I thought it wouldn’t be good to show up the First Lady, so I stopped. Let’s make sure we know there’s an age difference.”
