Sitting perfectly still while watching Ciara dance in videos counts as working out, right?
Upon repeat viewings of the new video for Ciara’s “I’m Out” (featuring Nicki Minaj), I’ve realized that the choreography here is not as aggressively unachievable as the dancing queen’s usual fare. A lot of the moves are mere poses that YOU could do — and have probably already done — in the shower! Friends, it’s time for a body party. A guide:
Prepare your “audience” for what’s ahead, ’cause they don’t even know.
It’s so hot it hurts, but be coy about it.
Not for too long though. Let the water know you’re into it.
See? This is just washing your arms. You’ve done that.
Talkin’ ’bout “gimme, gimme” (dat exfoliation scrub)
Not even Hammer can touch this (Ooh yay-yay-yay)
Just stretch! You can totally do that! (GET UP.)
A different, better version of yourself will emerge in the mist.
Look at how hot you are!
Soak it in. Final rinse.
Now think about what you’ve done.
BONUS STEAM ROOM STANCE
After a few dozen showers you should be all set to try this.

Good luck. Wash yourself.
