On July 9, Larson posted a video of herself tackling a weight-based workout with a trainer to her Instagram account. In the clip, Larson can be seen lifting one end of a barbell that's holding three 45-pound Sorinex weighted plates. In the clip, Larson lifts the end of the barbell to waist height, then squats slowly while bringing it back down to the floor, and repeats the motion.
"No toes were hurt in the making ??," she captioned the clip.

She makes stretching a priority, too.

While weight-based workouts are essential when it comes to giving Larson the strength she needs to tackle her physically demanding on-screen roles, she says that stretching is just as important a part of her everyday routine.

"Stretching is a huge part of exercise," Larson explained in a YouTube video detailing her daily stretching routine. "This is great for mornings, before workouts, as you're winding down your day, or, if you're somebody like me who's spending the majority of their time at a desk looking at Zoom all day, it's good to incorporate a couple of stretches and be kind to yourself."

She makes staying active a priority in her personal life.

It's not just when she's training for a film that Larson makes an active lifestyle a top priority. From throwing axes to hiking to swimming, Larson's personal life is full of exciting activities that keep her blood pumping outside the gym.

She doesn't deprive herself.

Larson may be in great shape, but she isn't exactly spartan about her diet. In fact, the star has recently launched a series on her YouTube channel called "But Will It Air Fry?" in which she puts various foods in her air fryer to see how they taste.

Among the treats she's tried? Waffles, cinnamon rolls, eggs, Pop-Tarts, Toaster Strudels (which she calls "the true pride and joy of my life") and turkey bacon.

In addition to the foods she eats during her taste tests, Larson says she's used the machine regularly to prepare her favorite foods for meals. "I've made a lot of fried things—a lot of breaded and fried things," she said of her device.
