The Strength Workout That Helped 'Captain Marvel' Star Brie Larson Get THAT Body

Have you seen the photos of Brie Larson on the Captain Marvel red carpet this week? If not, stop everything you’re doing and go marvel (pun intended) at the actress’s impressively ripped body.

I mean…those arms deserve their own Instagram.

But Brie didn’t pop out those muscles overnight. In fact, before she was cast as the title character in Captain Marvel, she wasn’t “particularly active” reports the LA Times. So she’s been working hard with her trainer Jason Walsh to reach super-hero-status strength.

Their workouts leading up to the film involved three months of “foundational training,” then three months of “maintenance” training while Brie travelled between Atlanta and L.A., and then three months of focused “Captain Marvel” training, which involved two months of technical work for stunts and fights. 

Their go-to moves during training? Weighted hip thrusts, pushups, Bulgarian split squats, pull-up drills, landmine deadlift, and sled pushes, Walsh told LA Times.

And her hard work definitely paid off. After training, Brie said: “My highest right now is 100kg in deadlifts, 180kg hip thrusts,” she says. Not to mention, she was able to push a 2,200kg jeep using just her body. Talk about superhero strength…

If you’re interested in trying Brie’s specific workout, Walsh teamed up with Disney and the Playbook app to share a free two-week training program based on how he trained the actress. (You can also check out Walsh’s 7-move strength workout here.)

Brie previously said: “Going through a movie that requires so much and takes this long, I’m realising I’m way stronger than I knew.” If that’s not #WHStrong, I don’t know what is.
