NO PAIN, NO GAIN: Mark Wahlberg shows off his SIX PACK in new pics, fans say he’s ‘defying age’
The 'Father Stu' star's weight has practically fallen off after spending a bit of time in the gym
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Mark Wahlberg is an example that with the right diet and training, you can still achieve a well-toned physique at the age of 51. The 'Boogie Nights' star recently showed off his huge biceps on Instagram, wearing only blue shorts that revealed his ripped abs.
The 51-year-old is a fitness enthusiast and has business interests in Performance Inspired Nutrition and F45 Training, which he credits for his physique. In the pictures, Mark can be seen showing off his monster six-pack on his Instagram page.
The 'Ted' star captioned the post alongside two bicep emojis, "@performinspired & @f45_training F51!" Social media users praised Mark after he posted the impressive pictures.
One user wrote, "Damn son. Defying the ageing process." Another said, "No Pain No Gain! you only reach your best when you push your limits! my profile has your movie quote. thanks for the motivation"
A third user chimed in, "Where can I sign to look like that at 50?" A fourth commented, "It's amazing how you take care of yourself. Great job my friend."
Mark's athletic look is the complete opposite of his round shape for 'Father Stu'. The star revealed that he had to eat 11,000 calories a day to reach the weight required for the film role. While speaking to Jimmy Fallon, Mark said, "unfortunately, I had to consume, for two weeks, 7,000 calories, and then for another two weeks, 11,000 calories. And it was fun for about an hour. It's such a hard, physical thing to do. Losing weight, you just kind of tough it out - you just don't eat, and exercise."
Mark added, "and this, even when you're full, I would wake up after a meal and have another meal. I was eating every three hours. It was not fun." The actor is an avid gym lover, and frequently shares videos of his workouts on his Instagram handle. On August 3, Mark shared a video with the caption, "2 workouts, 1 day! Inspired to be better. @f45_training @performinspired 🔥 #F45Partner #PIPartner."
Spilling details about his workout, Mark shared told Men’s Journal, “My workouts start with RAMP, which stands for range of motion, activation, and movement prep—things like Spiderman stretch and hip bridges, plus foam rolling. Then we switch between bilateral and unilateral strength moves using mostly heavy bands, TRX, dumbbells, and kettlebells. The lower body work includes balance and agility drills.”
Mark first showed his body in the music video 'Good Vibrations' and in several underwear commercials for Calvin Klein (1992). He also shot a workout video titled 'The Marky Mark Workout: Form... Focus... Fitness.'
