Brie Larson's workout to get superhero abs isn't for the faint of heart.

On Wednesday, the 32-year-old Oscar-winner shared a video to Instagram of the intense workout she uses to achieve her "Captain Marvel" physique.

In the video, Larson is seen lying on a workout bench with her feet attached to weighted cables, which she pulls in to complete a reverse crunch.

"Working up to 10 reps, 3x at body weight," she captioned the clip, with Kacey Musgrave's "Slow Burn" playing in the background.

Larson's post was met with applause from fans for her dedication to her role in the Marvel Comic Universe and for the motivational video.

"Wednesday motivation," one Instagram user commented, while another added, "Strongest Avenger!"

"You rock these workouts!" another said.

"I don't know how you manage to do that. I admire you a lot, Brie," another wrote.

"You’re an inspiration! Go Brie!" someone else commented.

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 told 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 wasn't much of a gym-goer.

"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."
