Mark Wahlberg’s latest movie, “Mile 22,” is in theaters, and he’s actively promoting his healthy lifestyle on Instagram. The former “Funky Bunch” rapper who transformed into a successful actor, model and businessman, has shared his intense daily routine, and it starts with 30 minutes of prayer at 2:45 a.m. and bedtime at 7:30 p.m.
The movie “Mile 22” required him to be in top shape. He followed a 47-day workout challenge and kept to his routine on holidays in order to be fully prepared for the action film.
Wahlberg has managed to remain in stellar shape for a 47-year-old. Followers on social media were interested in his daily regimen and he delivered an image that shows his routine. This image was shared on Instagram to his 10 million followers.
His grueling daily routine that calls for a 2:30 a.m. wake-up, followed by 30 minutes of prayer, workouts, meals/snacks, family time, work, and bedtime at 7:30 p.m.
His routine includes precisely seven meals and snacks, two workouts, a short golf session, recovery in a cold cryo chamber to reduce muscle pain, and multiple sessions with family.
Daily Caller writer David Hookstead pointed out a slight flaw in the schedule. 11 a.m. is listed as family time, but Wahlberg doesn’t pick up the kids from school until 3 p.m., four hours later.
“Mile 22” has Wahlberg playing the role of James Silva. He’s an elite American intelligence officer tasked with smuggling a police officer out of the country. The officer has sensitive information highly sought after by enemies. Silva receives help from a top-secret tactical command unit. There’s also an appearance by Ronda Rousey who stars as Sam Snow.
His next movie, “Instant Family,” is set for release in mid-November, and he is staying active on social media leading up to the premiere.
Wahlberg was listed as 2017’s highest-paid actor, earning $68 million, just topping Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who earned $65 million.
