Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg became the first woman to lie in state at the U.S. Capitol Friday.
Bryant Johnson, Ginsburg’s longtime trainer, dropped and gave the Justice a quick trio of push-ups when it was his turn to approach the flag-draped coffin shortly after 10:30 a.m.
ABC7 spoke with Johnson last year about his relationship with Justice Ginsburg, who he trained for more than 20 years.
She was known to leave high-level dinners to make sure she got her workout in. “I looked and said ‘Justice, you left the president to come do the workout?’ Johnson explained. “And [she] said ‘Yes, gotta do my pushups, gotta do my planks and my workout.’ I was like ‘Yes, nice!’”
