'Body By Jake'

Prez Obama Can Pump Some Iron!

EXCLUSIVE

060514_jake_steinfeld_launch_v3
President Obama
wasn't going soft with those puny dumbbells, he was going smart -- at least according to the fitness guru behind "Body By Jake."

Jake Steinfeld
weighed in on Obama's now famous workout in Poland -- and while a lot of people are giving the Prez crap ... Jake's giving him props for hitting the gym at all.

When we spotted Jake in Bev Hills ... he was quick to defend B.O. pumping iron with light weights ... because he says sometimes it's better to go for higher reps when you're squeezing in a quick workout on the road.

As for the President's chosen exercises and form -- you gotta hear why Jake was actually impressed. 

He also reveals who he considers our "most fit" Commander-in-Chief ever.

Hint: It's NOT William H. Taft.

William Howard Taft was a great man from a legendary family in Ohio. He was a gentleman and statesman in the best sense. And he was the only person to serve as President and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. He served in both roles with 'honor and distinction', too.

Obama is a thick slob compared to Mr. Taft.

People will just look for ANY silly reason to criticize Obama. And do guys who overwork their their chests and arms know how dumb they look?

Obama was doing half reps on military presses. He is a p.u.s.s.y.

One of the Reich Wing's presidents could lay on a raft in a pool 24/7 eating Krispy Kremes and will never had a peep uttered about him by the rabid right. Our president is secretly taped working out and gets raked over the coals. What I want to know is how ANYONE can fail to see the insanity that is this party!
