Barack Obama

Leading the free world is one thing, but lifting free weights? Men's Journal thinks President Barack Obama needs a little help with that.

The magazine was quick to dissect the leaked video of Obama getting his fitness on at the gym and, kindly(?), offer "a few tips for [his] next workout."

To begin with, the father of two needs to "stop jerking the weights," Men's Journal suggests, telling the prez, "You'll never have better arms than Michelle lifting like that." (Let's be honest: None of us will ever have better arms than the first lady.)

The mag also urged President Obama to pick up some heavier weights, use his full range of motion, ditch the elliptical and try something new. "Sir, we felt tired watching you work out," Men's Journal offers. "And the yawning and plodding made it look as fun as a Rand Paul filibuster. Maybe you could enlist the secret service for a group class? Try some Olympic weight lifting? Your wife seems pretty into hula hooping. Kidding, don't do that. But find something a man would do that's enjoyable as that."

Hey, now, real men Hula-Hoop, too! In any case, Men's Journal provides a "modified" version of Obama's workout, complete "with modifications for men looking to get fitter than POTUS."

Hey, we salute all forms of presidential fitness. And last we checked, Barack was looking pretty good for a second term commander in chief!!
