It wasn’t an easy job for Brie Larson to get ready for her lead role in the new movie “Captain Marvel.” She was required to undergo nine months of intense training to build up her physical strength.

“My highest right now is 215 lbs in deadlifts. 400 lb hip thrusts. Being able to lift weight like that really changed my perspective and understanding of myself,” she said recently.

Larson even recently posted some training videos on her Instagram account. No wonder she looks so fit!

The actress has been filming “Captain Marvel” since early 2018, even though the development of the movie started way back in 2013. The movie is due in theaters on March 9, 2019 in the U.S. and UK.
