Mark Wahlberg is no stranger to the gym, but just don’t make him do it in the middle of the day. Especially not after he’s played a few rounds of golf.
The Transformers star posted a video to Instagram Tuesday of himself huffing and puffing on an exercise bike. He’s in great shape, but he hates working out at 11:30 a.m. He wants to get back to his 4 a.m. workouts. You know, the time the rest of us normal people work out.
“I’m training late in the day now,” he says. “I ain’t got no energy. Golf first. It sucks the life out of me. I’m going back to the 4 a.m. club.”
It’s easy to mark this off as a celebrity complaining, but Mark Wahlberg is obsessive when it comes to his schedule. In 2018, he released his daily routine, and it nearly broke the internet. The man wakes up at 2:30 in the morning!
This is the itinerary he posted to Instagram, in case you want to hate yourself.
2:30 a.m. wake up
2:45 a.m. prayer time
3:15 a.m. breakfast
3:40-5:15 a.m. workout
5:30 a.m. post-workout meal
6 a.m. shower
7:30 a.m. golf
8 a.m. snack
9:30 a.m. cryo chamber recovery
10:30 a.m. snack
11 a.m. family time/meetings/work calls
1 p.m. lunch
2 p.m. meetings/work calls
3 p.m. pick up kids from school
3:30 p.m. snack
4 p.m. workout No. 2
5 p.m. shower
5:30 p.m. dinner/family time
7:30 p.m. bedtime
He’s clearly changed his routine, but Mark Wahlberg still packs more in the morning than the rest of us do on a Monday. While his work ethic puts us to shame, at least we got some good jokes out of it.
Mark Wahlberg Drops First-Look Trailer for ‘Uncharted’
It’s taken 13 years, but we are finally getting our first look at the movie Uncharted based on the popular video game series of the same name.
Mark Wahlberg, who plays Sully in the film, posted a first-look trailer last week. Hollywood doesn’t have a good history when it comes to video game adaptations. But this looks pretty good. Especially considering it’s been stuck in development hell since 2008.
The video game series follows Nathan Drake as he travels the world in search of treasures, fighting bad guys and solving ancient puzzles to avoid booby traps. Think Indiana Jones without the “it belongs in a museum” bent. Sully is an old friend who can get his hands on nearly anything Drake needs for a mission.
Producers approached Mark Wahlberg to play Nathan Drake originally but he declined. Writers cranked out another draft for Chris Pratt who also turned it down in 2015. They finally found their Nathan Drake in 2017 with Spiderman’s Tom Holland.
The movie releases on Feb. 18.
