Michelle Obama Is Cutting Back on Cardio

View Slideshow
USA PRESIDENTIAL VACATION

Michelle Obama is changing her workout regimen. As the first lady turns 50 (with Oprah, in Hawaii), she’s cutting back on high-impact cardio and weight training in order to focus on balance and flexibility. "I'm seeing myself shift from weight-bearing stuff – even though that continues to be important – and the heavy cardio and running, to things like yoga that will keep me flexible," she told People in a hard-hitting interview — Botox! Menopause! — on newsstands Friday. But things are still expected to get fairly aerobic at Obama's no-eating-just-dancing birthday party on Friday. For the record, this all counts as news because working out/dancing— okay, "physical activity"—  is the first lady’s signature policy initiative.
