Brie Larson is taking up a new hobby.

On Monday, the 32-year-old Oscar winner shared a carousel of photos on Instagram from her very first pole dancing class. The photos show the actress showing off her "Captain Marvel" strength, holding herself up on a pole dressed in a sports bra and blue hot pants.

"Made an im-pole-sive decision to try a new workout class," she wrote for her more than 7 million followers.

Larson's post was met with applause from fans for the workout motivation and praise for being "ripped."

"Abs," one Instagram user commented, while another added, "You look shredded."

"Captain, you’re so ripped," someone else commented.

"Queen of trying new stuff!" one person chimed in.

"Omg, that is so impressive. Well done, Brie!" another fan penned.

"Dude, you're actually so inspiring," someone wrote.

Larson routinely shares photos and videos of herself trying new and "impressive" superhero-worthy workouts.

Last week, the Oscar-winner shared a video to Instagram of an impressive ab workout. In the clip, Larson uses a chin-up bar to hoist herself up and then slowly extend her legs downward, activating her core.

"Trying new things," she captioned it.

"Absolutely killing it," one fan person applauded, while someone else added, "This is insane."

"Holy heck how is that possible?! I can’t even do a push-up," another commenter shared. "You inspire me."

In a recent interview with Insider, the actress said that while training for her role in 2019's "Captain Marvel," she pushed her body "far beyond" her expectations.

"I started this journey thinking I'll get strong and I had no idea. I went far beyond what I ever believed was possible for my body," she said. "Being able to hip thrust 400 pounds, deadlift 200 pounds, push my trainer's Jeep, I mean, it's an incredible experience to realize what's inside of you is well beyond what you knew was possible."

Larson also admitted that before joining the Marvel Universe, she didn't enjoy going to the gym.

"I affectionately called myself 'an introvert with asthma' before I got to play Carol Danvers and I started training first out of sheer panic," she said.

"That's part of why it's no surprise to me that this character has been able to reverberate outward because she first and foremost changed my life," she added. "So it makes sense to me that she could change other lives too."
