Meet presidential chef Rush and his 24″ biceps.
Rush joined the army at 21, cooking for top military brass before landing in the Whitehouse kitchen.
He’s cooked for US presidents including Clinton, Bush, Obama, and now Trump. He has a reported bench press record of 700 lbs.
He uses some unconventional training methods including thousands of push ups and biceps curls. His high volume training is contrary to many bodybuilding training expert opinions, but it works for him.
He eats a strict diet that’s heavy on muscle building protein.
He says he’s never taken steroids. “If I had ever taken steroids, I would hate to see what kind of monster I would be right now.”
He further elaborated in a recent social media post:
ALL NATURAL… OUT OF THE HORSES MOUTH! Lol –@realchefrush

PEOPLE DO WHAT THEY HAVE TO OR WANT TO.
DON’T HATE, BECAUSE REGARDLESS THEY STILL HAVE TO PUT IN TREMENDOUS WORK!!
IT’S CALLED LIFE GUYS, I RESPECT EVERYONE.. IF YOU ASK ME A QUESTION.. I ANSWER.. TOO EASY..
SO KEEP GRINDING, KEEP LIFTING, BE KIND, GIVE BACK and DESTROY EVERYTHING YOU DO IN LIFE! –
And live I said to @huge285 on @official_rxmuscle IF I DID Do ANYTHING.. –
I would be “A F$$$ING MONSTER” –
Correction .. IM ALREADY A MONSTER.. wait and see..
He does 200 pushups at a time, with a three to ten minute break in between each set on top of his normal weightlifting routine.
He hits the gym almost everyday for 2 hours and follows the 72 hour rule. Meaning he tries to target each muscle group every 3 days.
Not surprisingly his favorite day is arm day.
Chef Rush is a master ice carver, sommelier, pastry chef, chocolatier and sugar sculptor, among other specialties.
