Echoing Richard Simmons except she’s actually in shape, Serena Williams appears in a video posted online this week giving a step-by-step approach to twerking.
Employing the patient tone of a fitness instructor, Williams shows you how to successfully emulate Miley Cyrus’ 2013 MTV Video Music Awards performance or the two women who thought it’d be a good idea to dance on subway tracks, your choice.
Most recently, Williams played in the Miami Open, where she lost in the early rounds.

In an extended version of the video, Williams says twerking is all about your facial expression. “It’s not really about the action, it’s really about the face,” Williams advises.
Another key point, twerking “burns between five and eight calories per minute for a 150-pound individual,” according to the Healthline.com. Whatever moves Williams incorporates into her workout, they seem to help when it comes to chasing down anyone dumb enough to steal her phone.
