Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s folk hero status doesn’t show any signs of stopping. So it was only a matter of time before we got something like this: a workout guide from her personal trainer, Bryant Johnson, called The RBG Workout. Decked out with cartoon Notorious RBGs showcasing exercises, it would make a great gift for those obsessed with the fact the 84-year-old Supreme Court Justice stays fit with an insane workout routine. Johnson himself is a former member of the U.S. Army Special Forces and has America’s beloved Justice doing full-on push-ups. There aren’t many cool workout routines for seniors so the book fills a specific need beyond taking advantage of a meme.
