“Umm *hi* don’t mind me achieving my one-arm pull-up goal!” Larson captioned the post, which shows the star performing three full reps before dropping from the bar and doing a little victory dance - and so she should. It’s an achievement that deserves to be celebrated.
For those wanting to mirror Larson’s feats in the gym, know that it’s something the actor works on consistently. She often does exercises that improve her grip strength such as rope pull-ups, and challenges herself with weighted pull-ups. Upper body and arm day training staples include deadlifts, pushups, and weighted arm circles.
Larson credits her Captain Marvel trainer, Jason Walsh, for helping her achieve her goals. The pair even climbed Grand Teton, the second-highest point in Wyoming, after only six weeks of preparation. They carried out the climb in secret after he challenged Larson to join him, and she later called it a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” They later released a video of the experience.
Now, Larson is looking to get in the best shape of her life to reprise her superhero role for the upcoming Captain Marvel sequel. The new film, which has been given the title The Marvels, is expected to bring her character together with a range of other superwomen, including Ms Marvel and Monica Rambeua.
