I’ve seen this video around a lot on tumblr, and it’s genuinely a really good abs workout. It’s quite hard to follow though, so I’ve written it up for anyone who wants to give it a go. If anything seems unclear, watch the video. I’ve written most of this in relation to the lyrics because that’s easiest for the moves which are held. Beyoncé - Run the World (Girls) 

I did not devise this routine myself, I have only notated it so it is easier for people to follow if they wish to.
