Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s push-ups

During an MSNBC interview, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who is 83, was asked if she still does 20 push-ups every day.

“Yes,” she replied, “but we do 10 at a time. And, then, I breathe for a bit, and do the second set.”

Bryant Johnson, who has been Justice Ginsburg’s trainer for two decades, says, “I mean, she’s not the heaviest or the stoutest lady, but she’s tough. She works just as hard in the gym as she does on the bench.”

During the same interview, Justice Ginsberg was asked what she would like to be remembered for, and she said: “Someone who used whatever talent she had to do her work to the very best of her ability—and to help repair the tears in her society, to make things a little better through the use of whatever ability she has.”

We read about RBG in the book Notorious RBG—The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg by Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik.
