When I was watching the Oscars last weekend, the standout wellness wins—including Melissa McCartney’s now-iconic Adidas track suit—weren’t the only things that caught my eye. When Brie Larson arrived, I may or may not have experienced a full-on jaw-drop: I couldn’t take my eyes off her ridiculously toned arms. So much so that I ignored the next 10 minutes of the show because I was too busy stalking her Instagram page to steal the real-life Captain Marvel’s gym routine.

Larson has admitted she’s never been a fan of hitting the gym, but that all changed when she started amping up her training sessions with trainer Jason Walsh to prepare for her starring super hero role. Big-time. This girl’s workouts don’t involve a quick run on the treadmill and some dumbbell exercises. Instead, she literally pushes a 5,000-pound Jeep around. Basically, she’s officially my inspiration for all things fitness-related from here on out, and these badass workout videos will most definitely make her yours, too. Keep scrolling to find her workouts to bookmark now (if you have a Jeep that is…).

1. Jeep workout

Oh you know, she’s just pushing a 5,000-pound jeep will a full tank of gas uphill for 60 seconds. No big deal.

2. Rock climbing

She might be Captain Marvel, but she’d definitely make a great Spidey with these rock climbing skills.

3. Sledgehammer swings

…and a great Thor. This is 165 pounds of pure metal.

4. Weighted ball throws

There’s only one way Larson likes to play catch: with a weighted 12-pound ball.

6. Weighted lunges

Lunges are already hard enough when they don’t involve holding heavy weights over your head.

7. Pull-ups

Nine months of training will get you an impressive amount of flawless pull-ups.

8. Weighted push-ups

She busted out these push-ups with perfect form and heavy chains wrapped around her core.

If planks kill your wrists, add these exercises to your workouts. Or, find out how to deal with exercise headaches.
