The grind is serious.
Mark Wahlberg took to Instagram to answer some fan questions and revealed an impossibly taxing daily fitness regime.
The actor told fans that he starts his day at 2:30 AM. Soon after rising, he goes in for a half hour of prayers. Breakfast begins at 3:15 AM and is then followed by a grueling 95 minute workout. Subsequently, the actor eats another meal, takes a shower, grabs a snack, plays golf and then undertakes "cryo chamber recovery." The actor is referring to cryotherapy recovery - a method of relieving muscle and joint pain which involves using liquid nitrogen to plunge the air temperature below - 100 degrees celsius. The treatment is favored by professional athletes but the way Wahlberg is living, we'd say it's right up his street.
He went into further detail about his daily food intake sharing, "I start out with steel oats, blueberries and peanut butter for breakfast, then I have a protein shake, three turkey burgers, five pieces of sweet potato at about 5:30 in the morning. At 8 o'clock, I have about 10 turkey meatballs," he continued. "At 10:30am, I have a grilled chicken salad with two hard-boiled eggs, olives, avocado, cucumber, tomato, lettuce." He wrapped it up by saying, "At 1 o'clock I have a New York steak with green peppers. At 3.30pm, I have grilled chicken with bok choi. At 5.30/6 o'clock, I have a beautiful piece of halibut or cod or a seabass, with some vegetables, maybe some sautee potatoes and bok choi. And I have a lot of Aquahydrate during the day. That's it."
Wow. Who else felt special for waking up before 8:00 AM and getting 1 cookie instead of 2 at lunch today?
