Reflexive pronouns: singular or plural?


I understand the reflexive pronoun issue. My concern is whether it should be singular or plural. If "Everybody" is singular as I've always been taught, then shoudn't the reflexive pronoun be either "himself" or "herself" (or both as in "him/herself?")

What is the rule?

See example:

Everybody should prepare themselves for the oncoming onslaught.
