Brie Larson32, showed off just how strong she was during a super intense sled workout that she posted to her Instagram Story this week.
The actress discovered a love of working out while training for her role in the Captain Marvel movies.
Brie is big into weight training, including these sled workouts, pull-ups, weighted push-ups, and more.
Brie Larson knows how to put in the work. Tea Captain Marvel star, 32, showed off her impressive strength during a tough workout on her Instagram Story this week. In the first clip, Brie is in total beast mode pushing a weighted sled.
“Did a few too many reps trying to get the perfect shot @torquefitnessusa,” she captioned the first Story.
In the second video, she was pulling the sled, using a strap and belt around her waist to move the weights.
Brie can lift some serious weight, but she wasn’t always this strong. The actress told Insider that she went from being unable to “walk up a hill without being out of breath” to being able to do four, 400-pound hip thrusts during her training for Captain Marvel.
“Being able to hip thrust 400 pounds, deadlift 200 pounds, push my trainer’s Jeep, I mean, it’s an incredible experience to realize what’s inside of you is well beyond what you knew was possible.”
Brie also shared that for the second Captain Marvel film, she kept up her training and felt even more motivated.
“When people say like, ‘Oh, girls can’t do that,’ it just makes me wanna do it even more,” she told Insider. “So there were huge accomplishments this time and I just feel like my body’s just getting more and more used to this and more and more excited.”
Brie trains with her personal trainer Jason Walsh, who shares lots of videos of their workout sessions, including this one of Brie cranking out some insane one-arm pullups.
Brie also began working with a nutritionist, Dr. Philip Goglia, to fuel her Captain Marvel workouts and keep her in fighting shape.
Dr. Goglia told People that Brie’s morning routine included a sweet treat: a teaspoon each of almond butter and all-fruit jam or preserves. “The most recent science has shown that a little bit of fat and a little bit of simple sugar will actually increase intensity rate while you train early in the morning…and allow you to still continue to train and burn fat,” he said . “That really does start your engine.”
In addition, Brie usually added some protein to her breakfast with some eggs or a shake, followed by some mid-morning fruit as a “bridge meal” snack before a lunch of chicken and veggies, according to Dr. Goglia.
Brie makes sure to hydrate throughout the day, too, drinking three to four liters of water. “I think water ought to be a prescriptive thing–it’s just that important,” Dr. Goglia said.
Brie’s doing all the right things!
