Buddy Carter’s abs

Freshman Georgia Congressman Buddy Carter told a Capitol Hill gossip columnist that he begins most mornings with a workout that would leave former Rep. Aaron Schock short of breath.

Carter, a former GOP state lawmaker who was first elected to his coastal congressional district last year, told Roll Call that he begins his days with 500 pushups and 2,000 crunches.

“I do 500 pushups every morning. I should say, I do it at least 4 out of 7 [mornings]; I don’t do it every morning,” he told the paper for it’s “Take 5” feature in which members of Congress dish on their personal lives. “Obviously can’t do something every day, like that. I do get at least four or five days every week.

“And I do, a kind of stomach exercises, about 2,000 or so, again about four to five days out of the week.”

What a coincidence: that’s Tipsheet’s morning routine, too. We swear. Read More
