  • Miley Cyrus posted an Instagram video showing how she’s preparing for her Super Bowl LV pregame show performance on Wednesday, February 3.

  • The 'Midnight Sky' singer is set to perform at the NFL’s pregame TikTok tailgate on Sunday, February 7.

  • To train for her performance, she runs on a Peloton treadmill while flawlessly belting out 'Rebel Girl.'

Getting ready for a live performance is no small task, and many artists have told Runner’s World that running gives them an endurance boost they need when they’re on stage. Apparently, Miley Cyrus includes treadmill intervals when prepping for her performances, too.

On Wednesday, February 3, Cyrus posted a video of herself to her IGTV and Instagram story running on a Peloton treadmill—while belting out “Rebel Girl” by Bikini Kill. She captioned the video, “#SBLV PREP ☠️ Angels like you can’t fly with rebel girls like me 😈👼.” In the background of the video, you can also hear a person suggest she match her running pace with the rhythm of the song, which she does without missing a beat.

The singer, who recently released her album Plastic Hearts, hopped on the Peloton Tread in a pink Nike sports bra, pizza socks, and black joggers and shoes. After running and singing for about a minute and a half, she hops off the Tread, only slightly winded, hydrates and catches her breath and for about a minute. She then continues practising her performance—as if she didn’t just complete some tough speedwork while singing.

A few songs later, off-camera, someone can be heard saying 'that’s an athlete right there,' and we agree—she might even be a rockstar.
