Oscar winner Brie Larson underwent a serious workout regime to get in shape for her starring role in Captain Marvel.

Next week, the actress debuts in her standalone MCU blockbuster, which sees her kicking ass and getting shit done as Carol Danvers in a world of aliens, allies and enemies.

However, you can't just stroll on to set and start moving like a superhero, it takes graft, and apparently, pushing a jeep with your back against it. Really.

Via LA Times, check out the five-step routine Brie had to attack as part of her preparation.

Warning: this may induce phantom back-ache or pulled hamstrings (or, if you're like us, the feeling of sluggishness and the need for a lie down!).

So there you have it, all you have to do to get into Kree warrior-like shape is complete nine months' worth of hip thrusts, push-ups, Bulgarian split squats, pull-up drills and 'sled to cars'.

Yeah right, we'll probbaly give that one a miss, thanks.

Although the actress appears to have smashed the gym in preparation for the movie, it was actually one of her co-stars that gave her the biggest problem during filming.

We'll give you a clue as to which one this might've been; it's one of the comics' most beloved – and whiskered – characters.

Captain Marvel is released in cinemas on March 8.
