Celebrities have a phobia of many things, with obesity and aging being high on the list of priorities. I bet you understand the reasons for that very well. Acting or even singing requires a high degree of mobility that only someone who is physically fit can afford. This means that a celebrity must have the right weight and strength to handle the liveliness of live performance and the movements required during shooting. Mark Wahlberg is one of the most successful actors in the United States. The 44-year-old has won the hearts of many people not only in his country but also around the world.
Besides his great talent, the former pop star has stolen the hearts of many because of his wonderful body shape. The question is how the movie star manages to keep his weight and even lose superfluous pounds when he notices that it is getting out of control. Fortunately, he didn’t keep it a secret. He does this through intensive physical training and a healthy lifestyle, free of food that would predispose him to overweight gain. In this article, we take a look at Mark Wahlberg’s training and weight loss body and reveal some deep-seated facts about how he does it.
Mark Wahlberg’s High-Intensity Workout
Mark is known to many as a heavyweight actor who loves to lift weights, changing his weight and physique at will to fit into the different roles he is to play in different movies. The actor trains with unimaginable intensity and unsurpassed hardcore dedication to achieve what many stars wish for but cannot achieve in the time given to them to prepare.
The actor had to become as big as possible to play the role he was given in the movie Pain & Gain (2013). For this film, the actor had to adopt a training regime that included the use of 8 different training programs and training equipment. To warm up the face, he made a foam roll quad, with it band, hamstring, piriformis and back each lasting 20 to 30 seconds. Also, he performed lateral tape runs (1 set of 10 repetitions), power plate lower body activation (60 seconds), reverse lunge (1 set of 10 repetitions), rope skipping and TRX hip and side stretching (1 set of 5 to 10 repetitions).

The actor then completed the workout with chest press in a seated position, leg press, standing biceps cable curl, triceps push down and side lift in a seated position. If you are familiar with these training expressions, you will appreciate that these are not just ordinary workouts. They are highly intensive workouts that you cannot do without investing a lot of effort, time and dedication.
Mark Wahlberg Weight Loss
It was usually a 5-day training routine, but the movie star admits that he had to eat an extra meal to gain muscle and weight before the movie. His diet consisted mainly of a lot of protein, vitamins, healthy carbohydrates, and good fat, as well as sufficient fluids. This training catapulted the actor to 221 pounds, but then, when another movie role (The Gambler 2014) demanded that he slim down, he had to choose a different diet plan and high-intensity exercise routine to reach 165 pounds in weight.
