Brie Larson is priming her body for ‘Captain Marvel 2’ with morning stretches

Training to look like a superhero requires commitment and hard work. But on her Youtube channel, Larson suggested her fitness routine focuses on recovery as much as anything else. 

 “I am starting training again for the sequel, so I’ve been doing everything I can to just get my body primed,” she says in her Feb. 25 video. “I’ve learned a lot from athletes in the recovery process, [like] how important it is to avoid injury in something like Captain Marvel — Yeah, it does require no lifting weights and all of those things, but it also requires the recovery.”

In the vlog, Larson demonstrates the morning stretches she’s incorporated into her fitness routine. And she notes that it’s helped her tune into her body. 

“Stretching daily has helped me a lot over the past few months,” Larson captioned the vlog. “It’s something I do before each of my workouts and even on days, I know my body just needs a little extra love. It’s a great way to calm down and listen to your body.”

Brie Larson’s morning routine also involves self-care

In a Feb. 4 video on her YouTube channel, Larson revealed the self-care techniques she incorporates into her daily morning routine. The Captain Marvel 2 star starts each day cleansing her face. And she then heads to the kitchen to make a cup of tummy-friendly matcha green tea. 

While her sauna is heating up,  Larson cracks open her journal and does a little self-reflection. “It is a time to just get all my thoughts out, connect with myself, see where I’m at, express gratitude if that’s where it’s at,” she says. “And then sometimes I throw in something different.

“Right now, one of the things that I’ve been really interested in is my intuition because I think I, as well as every person on the planet, has very strong intuition.”

After journaling her thoughts, Larson heads to her sauna to stretch, breathe, and clear her mind. She then showers, washes her face and gets ready for her morning workout. At the end of the video, Larson mentions that she drinks water throughout her morning. And she often makes herself an egg and vegan cheese sandwich for breakfast.
