Mark Wahlberg isn’t just one of the hardest-working men in showbiz, he’s one of the fittest.
Mark Wahlberg stars in four movies this year, including Entourage (June 3) and Ted 2 (June 26). In other words, it’s just a normal year for the prolific actor. The only thing our May 2013 cover star takes as seriously as his craft is his training. Previously, we documented Wahlberg’s road to getting as big as possible for Pain & Gain. To maintain a leaner, but still muscular physique, Wahlberg’s training has since evolved, incorporating more body weight and suspension trainer work.
That’s not to say his training sessions are easier these days. By keeping rest periods around 30 seconds between sets, Wahlberg maintains a high intensity to get a solid pump while burning fat.
