His rugged physique helped win him lucrative modelling contracts long before his reinvention as one of Hollywood’s most bankable actors.

But while his early days as a Calvin Klein poster boy are behind him, Mark Wahlberg still adheres to the rigorous health and fitness regimen that helped win him an army of female admirers.

Speaking to the October issue of Men’s Health, Mark, 45, admits he trains intensively and refrains from excess, opting instead to limit his calorie intake and force himself into having early nights – but a series of exercise related injuries means he has to limit himself.

‘There’s no way I’m going out, eating dinner, drinking wine. I literally go home and go to bed. If I finish work at 8pm, I try to be in bed by 9pm. You gotta put the work in. Then you gotta get the rest and recovery,’ he explained.

‘I always do full-body workouts, and I gotta prevent myself from getting any more injuries: I’ve got some herniated discs, labrum tears in my shoulders, a couple broken bones in my hands.
‘And I don’t want to just look like a bodybuilder. I’ve done that before, with Pain & Gain. I want to be able to play with my kids. I want to run and play basketball.’

Early morning starts are also key to his healthy lifestyle, with the actor somehow finding the time to squeeze in a game of golf at 6am.

‘We’re usually sprinting pretty much. If you’re doing the right things, then there’s enough time in the day to get it all done,’ he said.

Frequently away from his Los Angeles home – the actor has just wrapped forthcoming movie Deepwater Horizon on location in New Orleans – Mark admits he uses every opportunity to train, however unorthodox.

He’s one of the most successful actors on the planet. But that’s not enough.

At 45 years old, Mark Wahlberg is an Oscar-nominated actor and producer, an entrepreneur, a Catholic, and a father of four who never misses family dinner.

It’s hard to believe he’s the same guy who sold drugs and pleaded guilty to assaulting two Vietnamese men as a teen. Those 45 days at Boston’s Deer Island House of Correction were the start of how that guy became this guy.

Wahlberg’s jail cell lesson: Being a screwup is a choice.

“I knew the only way I could be successful was by working hard and doing the right thing,” he says.

That resolve is evident today in everything he does, starting with the alarm clock that goes off at 4:10 a.m.

In the September issue of Men’s Health (available on newsstands and the Apple iTunes Newsstand now), Wahlberg opens up about how he became the man he is now. Keep scrolling for a sneak preview.

THERE ARE ALWAYS ENOUGH HOURS IN THE DAY—IF YOU GET UP EARLY ENOUGH

Wahlberg is up before dawn most days for a workout with kettlebells, dumbbells, bands, and a jump rope.

He helps send the kids off to school before a day’s work: Deepwater Horizon, about the deadly 2010 oil rig explosion, opens September 30; Patriots Day, based on the Boston Marathon bombing, premieres in December; and Transformers: The Last Knight is due out next summer.

Still, he’s home in time for a never-miss family dinner.

“There’s more than enough time in a day as long as you’re not burning the candle at both ends,” Wahlberg says. “As long as I’m not going out and getting crazy, I’m good. I get eight hours of sleep.”

Wahlberg is the ultimate pro—whether he’s carrying an Oscar-winning film, producing shows on TV, or simply making us laugh our asses off. (See today’s Ted 2.) But there’s much more to this father of four; namely, a struggle for redemption.

A boxy figure in a blue suit, collared shirt, and no tie emerges backlit from smoke and shadow. He walks toward you, hands in pockets, fabric draping in symmetrical billows, his gait even, steps steady, and pauses, yellow light now hitting him full in the face. Mark Wahlberg nods once, then blinks, and asks, “How was that? Again?” He turns, walks back into the shadow and smoke, stands there, waits.

He’s here on a Hollywood sound-stage, filming a promotion for the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight. For pay-per-view watchers—in other words, all of us except the precious few who could afford the many thousands of dollars it cost to be in the MGM Grand Garden Arena that night in May—the first thing we saw before the big fight, after the preliminaries, before the ring walks and the cameras panning to the celebrities in the audience, was Mark Wahlberg walking out of the smoke and shadow, his familiar drawn, beseeching, hungry face staring at us and uttering with action-hero solemnity a kind of beat poem for the pugilistic set: “A rivalry, deeper than competition, so personal it transcends sports, it speaks to the very core of human nature.”

He goes on in this macho cadence for more than 30 seconds. It’s no easy task to stand there and spout this steroidal copywriting, but Wahlberg does it with aplomb, never wavering, in two quick takes. Like after a hard left and a hard right, this promo is down for the count. The lights come up and a few dozen camera, sound, light people, and a half-dozen guys in suits seated in armchairs, a phone in each hand, can finally stand up and stretch, talk full-throatedly into their phones. Wahlberg is a pro. He got here on time. He filled out his suit like a panther does his fur. And then nailed his lines. You can’t say the same for the other guy slated to do the promo, Sean “Diddy” Combs, who, as of Wahlberg’s nailed take, was already an hour late.
