Hope and change? It's 'sigh and groan' while Obama pumps iron

Jet lag couldn’t get in the way of President Barack Obama pumping some iron while in Warsaw.

He took to the gym Wednesday at the Warsaw Marriott Hotel, to the delight of some onlookers.

“Hotel guests were not asked to leave the gym during this off-the-record movement, nor were they asked to refrain from taking pictures,” Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said in a statement.

Now, thankfully, we all can get a good look at what a presidential workout looks like — and get the word on what it sounds like.The clip of his workout was first leaked to Fakt, a Polish tabloid, which reports that Obama likes to make gym noises, as he “heavily sighed and groaned” while doing his exercises. Another fun fact: He writes down his routine on a piece of paper and carries it around with him.

His form wasn’t terrible, but he could probably use some lessons from Hans, Franz and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
