Mark Wahlberg's typical daily workout schedule looks pretty extreme
Mark Wahlberg is currently in training for his new film, Mile 22.
Wahlberg plays James Silva, the film's protagonist. An elite American intelligence officer, Wahlberg's character is aided by a top-secret tactical command unit as he tries to smuggle a mysterious police officer with sensitive information out of the country.
The role sounds as if it's a physically demanding one, but the man once known as Marky Mark is no stranger to the gym, regularly posting workout footage on his Instagram accounts.
In response to a question from a fan about his routine, Wahlberg went into quite an amount of detail when listing his 'typical daily schedule' on Instagram Stories.
This will still raise an eyebrow, even if you already assumed his schedule was busy to begin with.
Wahlberg has woken up, eaten breakfast and finished training - all before 5:30am. He even finds the time to get a prayer in. There's being a morning person, and then there's this. You can't argue with his dedication, though, and his routine fits perfectly around his film commitments.
You'll notice that Wahlberg likes to eat frequent, small meals. For building muscle, spreading your amount of meals over the course of the day in smaller feeds appears to provide the best anabolic response.
If fat loss is the goal, the number of meals you eat doesn't matter so much as it's more about the calories you consume. When you burn off more calories than you take in from food and drink then you'll lose weight.
Engaging in extra activities such as golf may seem like an extra stress added to an already busy day, but there's definitely a benefit to this.
NEAT is a concept which stands for 'non-exercise activity thermogenesis'. This basically refers to activities you do outside the gym that still burn calories and energy. Increasing the amount of sport you engage in can be a great way of shifting stubborn body fat, as can walking to and from work.
Mile 22 will be in cinemas from 19 September
