You ready to train like one of Marvel’s strongest heroes?
Ladies, get ready.
We’ve seen Captain Marvel with our comic/hero routines that are based around the character instead of the celeb that Coach Richie writes for us, but I was waiting for some more information to come out about Brie Larson’s actual routine – and I think we’re good to go now!
I did preliminary research and I’m really excited to write this one up!
I’ve had a crush on Brie Larson since 21 Jump Street, so I’m excited to see her join the badass group of Marvel’s women heroes.
Brie Larson Stats:
Weight: (approximate) 128 lbs.
I always say that our average on height for women on SHJ is around 5’4-5’6 range, but we’re seeing more and more of the 5’7-5’8 as well.
But then there is also that taller range, and amongst the tallest (even taller than the 5’7), are ladies like Gwendoline Christie, Gal Gadot, and a few others – with Brie Larson, Nina Dobrev, Daisy Ridley, and so many more coming in around that 5’7-5’8 range.
But, either way, don’t worry.
I write these routines to be utilized by anyone and everyone!

Brie Larson Diet and Nutrition
So, while we have Brie Larson sharing a lot about her training with us via her Instagram, we don’t have as much about her diet and nutrition.
That being said, we know enough to work a lot out for ourselves.
We know she is tacking on muscle while shredding the fat in order to prepare for her role as Captain Marvel.
So how does one do that?
Well we’ve recently released the new superhero programs like the Cut and Shred, Women’s Glutes Tone and Slim, and Bulk and Strength that focus around specific goals, but we also have The Academy Nutrition Pillars (Vikings, SuperHumans, Monks, Spartans, Minimalists, Hunter Gatherers, Samurais) that allow you to manipulate for whichever goal you’re looking to hit.
In this case, utilizing something like we’ve seen done by Hugh Jackman, Olivia Munn, and Terry Crews with intermittent fasting (and I like to pair cyclical ketosis with it) can really jumpstart the fat burning.
But, if this is all a lot to take in, you can also head straight to our Nutrition Pillars as well!
And then we built The SHJ Legacy Program to help you achieve it!

Brie Larson Workout Routine Research
Okay, I’m going to flood this section with some Instagram pictures, videos and quotes from Brie Larson to get us started right off the bat.
In this one she writes:
9 months of training really does some stuff to your body.”
And this next one is pretty crazy.
Here’s some hip thrusts for you:
And finally, some celebratory overhead barbell lunges when she hit one million followers:
As you can tell, she’s doing heavy weights, and I have some more quotes for you guys from People Magazine that will help us form this workout even more.
They start with:
Larson previously trained for her role in Room, telling PEOPLE in 2016 that she gained 15 lbs. of muscle for the part that won her an Oscar.
“I was able to lift things that I never felt in my life I would be able to do,” she said.
Larson said that her morning strength-training workouts gave her a chance to clear her head before stepping into her role as a mom imprisioned for years by her kidnapper.
And it continues to:
“That became such a huge part of the routine of making this movie,” she said. “Every other day, I worked with this incredible trainer, and she would have me lift extreme weights over my head. Just having that, being able to deadlift before I went to work every morning, gave me this mental change that I never had before.”
We like deadlifts…
Do you think we have enough information? I do!
