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!"
