The 2019 Oscars had a number of standout wellness wins—including Melissa McCartney's Adidas track suit—but something that lives in my memory rent-free is the debut of Brie Larson's Captain-Marvel-ready arms. It was just weeks before the movie's release, and she looked every inch the superhero.

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 action-star role. Big-time. And her workouts don't involve a quick run on the treadmill and some dumbbell exercises. Instead, she literally pushes a 5,000-pound Jeep around.

Even if you're not looking to act like a human tow truck, Larson's workouts are sure to provide inspo for switching up your sweat sessions. Keep scrolling to find her workouts to bookmark now.

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

6. Weighted lunges

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