5 Ways Mark Wahlberg Stays Wicked Strong

From Men's Journal

How does Mark Wahlberg—actor, producer, athlete, businessman, father—get it all done? For starters, he wakes up earlier than you do.

Time Management

Nothing impedes on family time, so I sacrifice my mornings. Breakfast is at 3:45 a.m., by 4 I’m training, 5 a.m. is prayers, and I’m golfing at 6. Thursdays are for recovery, and Sunday is the Lord’s Day. I thrive on the grind.

If it was a heavy-lifting day, I’ll have an extra scoop of protein powder.
