Mark Wahlberg shares his new 'toned-down' health and fitness routine
| Last updated
Mark Wahlberg has shared his new dialled down daily routine, but if you think that means he's taking things easy then you’re mistaken. You can see a mere mortal attempting his old routine here:
The 51-year-old hit headlines back in 2018, when he revealed the incredible lengths he goes to to keep in shape, with a 2.30am wake, hours in the gym and daily cryogenic chamber sessions.
Fast-forward four years and the Hollywood star has eased things up a little bit and says he's seeing even better results.
Now, when I say ‘eased things up a little bit’ I do mean a little bit - Wahlberg’s new routine sees him waking up between 3.30am and 4am, he then starts his day with an hour or so of prayer, before knocking back a cocktail of supplements and vitamins including turmeric and vitamin D.
He then treats himself to an espresso and works out for about an hour-and-a-half, before finishing off his morning with a round of golf.
Wahlberg now sticks to a strict window to eat - known as intermittent fasting - which sees him only eating between midday and 6pm. But as you can probably imagine, he’s not chowing down on junk food and sweets - Wahlberg follows a healthy high-protein diet consisting of chicken, turkey, egg whites and rice.
With such an early start, it makes sense that Wahlberg heads to bed around 7.30pm, insisting that he ‘always gets eight hours’.
Speaking to the Wall Street Journal about his new routine, he said: “I don’t have to do as much cardio, I don’t have to spend as much time in the gym and I feel like I’m getting better results.
“I’m trying to share that information with everybody because I’m really, really seeing the benefits and pretty quickly.”
Wahlberg says at least five days a week he sticks to his 18-hour fast, but on days where he’s trained particularly hard he might make his fast shorter by a couple of hours to allow him to refuel properly.
The actor also said he finds himself most productive in the morning - which is good, given he goes to bed at 7.30pm - and that’s the time when he tackles his emails and takes his calls.
He explained: “In the morning. Getting up early, there’s no one around. [I’m] going through all my emails, reaching out to everybody I work with in various respects.
“I can make a lot of those calls in the morning, if I’m going back and forth to the golf course, or when I’m in the car.”
