From time to time, President Obama likes to hit the gym and throw the weights around. We know this because journalists keep telling us about it (in 2008 and 2009 and 2011 and 2012), but never have we seen the man in action — until now. Thanks to a clandestine camera phone in a Warsaw gym, we now know what the Commander in Chief looks like when he's grimacing through a workout and yawning between sets. We also have a decent idea of how much he lifts. It's hard to pinpoint the weight on those dumbbells, but it doesn't look like much. We're going to give the president the benefit of the doubt here and assume they were labeled in kilograms.
