Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been on the Supreme Court for 25 years today — here’s the workout she uses to stay on top of her game
Many began to speculate when Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg would step down from the bench after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement on Wednesday.
But Ginsburg is not defined by her 85 years of age. She works out with her personal trainer, Bryant Johnson, twice a week for an hour.
Her workout is a series of full body strength exercises that target arms, chest, legs, back, shoulders, glutes, and abs.
I decided to give Ginsburg’s workout a try for two weeks — here’s what happened.
If you are looking for evidence that 85-year-old Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg isn’t retiring anytime soon, just try her workout.
After Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement, people began speculating when the liberal bastion might step down from the bench. But Ginsburg works out with her personal trainer, Bryant Johnson, twice a week. She has called him “the most important person in her life.”
Johnson and Ginsburg have been doing the one-hour workout that he details in his book, “The RBG Workout: How She Stays Strong and You Can Too” for 18 years, aside from the three years he was deployed in Kuwait.
The workout starts with a five-minute warm-up and light stretching followed by a strength training session that includes push-ups, planks, chest presses, squats, and hip abductor exercises, then another round of stretches to cool down.
Here’s what happened when I tried the workout for two weeks.
