I knew Beyoncé works relentlessly for that rock-solid body, but I had no idea exactly what she did to get those legs, abs, and every other hard-earned inch. Until now.

Queen Bey’s latest Instagram video unveils Ivy Park‘s new collection (her line of activewear, in case you haven’t yet stocked up)—and in the process, divulges her go-to moves and workout wisdom.

Apparently Bey’s a fan of yoga (“I stretch my body out like the horizon,” she says); strength training; chasing her daughter, Blue Ivy, around the playground (h/t to all cool moms out there); putting in hours upon hours of dance practice; and, drumroll, please…running on the treadmill. Yes, even Beyoncé hits up the no-frills piece of gym equipment from time to time.

“When I’m about to give up, I picture that one person I love more than anyone, and I imagine myself running toward them.”

How, exactly, does Beyoncé motivate herself to last more than 20 minutes on the thing? (Asking for a friend….) “I teach my body every day that I can go a little further,” she coos in the video. “I know what it’s capable of—I’ve seen it before in miracles.”

Also, she’s a big believer in the power of visualization—especially when she hits the proverbial wall: “Even when my throat is burning and my lungs feel like they’re drowning, sweat is stinging my eyes, my feet feel like they’re gonna explode…when I’m about to give up, I picture that one person I love more than anyone, and I imagine myself running toward them,” she says. “I push past the pain and I find love.”

Consider this the fitspo follow-up to the life lessons doled out in Lemonade.

Watch it for yourself below:
