Brie Larson is gearing up for her starring role in Captain Marvel, and apparently she's method acting. By which we mean strength training at the gym like a real-life superhero.

The actress took to Instagram to show off what nine months of intensive training can do to a person's body—and she looks incredibly strong and inspiring.

To quote the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt theme song, females are strong as hell.

Also, FYI in case you want to know more about this movie—it's set in the '90s (YASSSS), and is about Carol Danvers—better known as Captain Marvel—a pilot who gains superpowers after getting into an accident. Naturally she ends up fighting an alien war, as ya do.
