My body is not ready for this, Rey.

Daisy Ridley's Instagram is a treasure trove of goodies.

She posts memes.

She keeps things relatable.

But, most importantly, she gives us amazing glimpses into the Star Wars universe she lives in as Rey, our Jedi heroine.

And today, she showed us a training video of her wielding something that LOOKS like a substitute lightsaber and...ummm, it looks like Rey is going to kick some ass in Episode VIII.

She starts things off light, just a quick effortless little spin.

And then shit gets real FAST. Look at how smoothly she's spinning that fake lightsaber.

And then she finishes it off with A PERFECT SPIN AND HOP.

That fake lightsaber is like an extension of her arm. It's like FULL OF THE FORCE, YA KNOW?

And guess who Daisy's training with?

So @liangstunts (TRAITOR) is WUSHU FRICKING MASTER and I always try to get him to teach me things... This was today!!! Obvs not great but HE'S amazing and he's also featured at the end 😄😄😄 our stunt team are the most incredible group of people, so lucky I get to train with them!"

That's right, she's training with the infamous Tr8r, AKA Liang Yang.


And he's so proud of his lil' Padawan.

Let's all take a moment to acknowledge how unprepared our bodies are for the badassery Rey will be bringing us in Episode VIII.
