Shannen Doherty dances through workout one day after chemo

She's already documented what a typical "chemo day" is like for her, and now Shannen Doherty is sharing another part of her battle against breast cancer — the day after.

On Thursday, the actress was able to push through the pain and exhaustion she felt after her most recent treatment, and she shared the inspiring results on Instagram.

"I’m not feeling too great," she explained in a short video. "I'm really tired. I was nauseous last night and achy — everything sort of typical after chemo. I would prefer to be laying in bed right now and doing nothing, but guess where I'm heading? Gonna go work out."

In another clip, Doherty showed her fans exactly what that workout entailed — and while it couldn't have been easy, it sure looked fun.

"Let me tell ya.... shaking your booty is hard work with my Neda who's been helping me move and get toxins out," she wrote in the caption alongside an example of her dance-filled routine. "Yes I was tired, yes I wanted to be in bed but I went and moved and felt way better. Any exercise during illness is good. We can do it!!!"

Doherty capped off both clips with a series of power-packed hashtags, including "#beastmode," "#fightlikeagirl" and "#warrior."

Later in the day, Doherty put beast mode behind and settled in for another important part of the day after chemotherapy — kicking back and recuperating.

"And sometimes you just want to collapse on the couch and watch tv with your mom," she added to a post-exercise pic. "I love you mom."
