Apparently he was overheard in a bar saying he can do Michelle in 3 minutes.

That's a workout right?

that was pretty hilarious

anybody notice the bumpers and oly platforms in the back ground???( could make a follow up snatch joke but ill refrain)

He looks too skinny to be a crossfitter but who knows. Dont really like him but if he was a crossfitter i would instantly change my mind.

I saw that picture on the photographer's blog. Apparently the story goes like this:

They were backstage before a big speech, and staffers were egging each other on to try and do ONE pullup on the bar. On his way to the stage, Obama hopped on the bar, whipped out three pullups in his suit, then walked onstage for the speech.

That sooo sounds like something a Crossfitter wouldn't be able to resist!

Nah, a CFer would do 20-30 pull-ups, not just 3.

From looking at his build, I seriously doubt that he's a Crossfitter. I was actually surprised that he could do pull-ups, he seems to be the skinny-fat type.

I doubt he's the "skinny-fat type." If nothing else, I know he plays basketball nearly every day. I realize it's possible for fat people to play basketball, so my logic isn't rock solid; but it's probably hard to be skinny and play basketball every day and be the skinny-fat type.

Haha, doing pull-ups doesn't mean you Crossfit! I have heard he runs a few times a week and lifts a few times a week. As for being skinny-fat, haven't you seen the picture of him recently at Hawaii? He has a six-pack. Not a TOTALLY RIPPED six-pack, but one nonetheless--probably better than most men his age can boast, anyway.
