Andre Rush is a freelance White House chef who is adept at ice sculpting, cake decorating and building his muscles to a staggering 24-inch biceps. He’s been cooking for high-profile figures such as Obama since 1997, he is 46-year old.
Rush is a retired Army master sergeant who spent 24 years in the military. His stints include being a Senior Enlisted Aide and an advisor at the prestigious West Point Academy. In 1994, he became a cook and began honing his craft as a chef, master cake decorator, desert and ice sculptor.
He once made a 16-foot long cake replica of a Humvee, as reported by The Washingtonian. The artist has also worked with charcoal, acrylic paint, and watercolors but prefers culinary art.
Rush credits his build to his commitment to doing “2,222 pushups every weekday as a part of the #22PushupChallenge to raise awareness of the estimated 22 military veterans who die from suicide every day. He does up to 200 push-ups at a time, with a three to 10-minute break in between each set”, as documented by Men’s Health.
Rush also “hits the gym almost every day for an hour or two and abides by a “72-hour” rule, meaning he works out a certain body part every three days.”
