The White House Chef with 24-inch biceps has to slit sleeves of chef coats to fit in them
| Last updated
Andre Rush is a military veteran and celebrity chef who has worked at the White House and cooked for four presidents over the course of his lifetime.
Cooking had previously been a hobby for him that he'd inherited from his mother but becoming a chef would end up taking him all the way to the top.
Eventually, Andre worked his way up to cooking at the White House in 1997, preparing food for then-president Bill Clinton, who he says 'ate really healthy'.
Rush would go on to cook for presidents George W Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump during their times in the White House.
According to the chef, Bush 'liked BBQ stuff' while Obama 'ate healthy', and while Trump apparently loved a McDonald's he also ate 'balanced meals on a daily basis'.
The chef shot to viral fame in 2018 after being pictured cooking for the White House iftar, a meal Muslims eat to break their fast during Ramadan.
More specifically people couldn't take their eyes off Rush's huge biceps, which measured up at an incredible 24 inches.
This sparked a whole wave of interest into just who Rush was and the chef had told Men's Health that he was getting 'hundreds of emails and texts and calls'.
There is one big drawback to having arms like Rush's, however, and that's that he has to cut slits into the sleeves of his chef jackets to make them actually fit properly.
To get biceps like Rush's takes a lot of hard work and some serious dietary changes to have plenty of protein - just remember to make space in your jacket sleeves for your new arms.
Just in terms of diet, on a typical day he eats 12 to 14 hard-boiled eggs each morning, two of them whole and the others just the egg whites while drinking a peanut butter shake with protein powder, blended quinoa and non-fat milk.
He follows that up with Greek yoghurt, oatmeal and lean turkey, and also takes turkey into the gym with him to snack on.
In the afternoon he eats four whole roast chickens, which actually sounds rather exhausting.
On top of the diet required, Rush said that to get his biceps in such incredible shape and keep them there he does 2,222 push-ups each weekday.
In addition to building up his arms to incredible size, it's also done for something called the #22pushupchallenge, which raises awareness for the welfare of military veterans.
The challenge was started after it was found that on average 22 military veterans were taking their own lives each day.
Rush does these in intervals of up to 200 push-ups at a time with a few minutes break in between, while he also heads off to the gym on regular workouts on top of that.
If you want arms like the chef's then you've got to live like him too.
