Ginsburg’s trainer does pushups by her casket as she lies in state

Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s personal trainer paid his respects to the late Supreme Court justice by doing pushups beside her casket as she lay in state at the Capitol.

Bryant Johnson could be seen approaching the flag-draped casket holding Ginsburg, who died last week at 87, at the Capitol’s Statuary Hall on Friday.

He then dropped to his knees and did a series of three pushups.

Johnson said in March that Ginsburg was continuing her well-documented workout routine despite the coronavirus pandemic.

“Her choice is, she doesn’t make excuses not to do it,” Johnson told Law360 of the justice’s then-biweekly exercise regimen.

The octogenarian had shared details of her famed fitness formula before, saying she would do pushups, “both front and side” planks and weight-bearing exercises with Johnson.

In 2017, Johnson released a book about Ginsburg’s sweat sessions, titled “The RBG Workout: How She Stays Strong…and You Can Too!”
