Mark Wahlberg showed off his shredded physique in an Instagram photo this weekend, and the shirtless snap caught the attention of none other than Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
“We are looking for some skill players,” Brady, who’s not in bad shape himself, quipped. Wahlberg, who’s currently filming his upcoming Netflix movie “Wonderland,” later responded to Brady, “Let Coach know I’m coming for that spot!”
Mario Lopez also weighed in, commenting, “Show ’em what fellas in their 40s are all about! You look awesome bro!”
Wahlberg has been following a rigorous diet and fitness routine for his new role as an ex-con turned undercover detective in the crime drama due out next year.
He regularly posts on Instagram how he hits the gym at 4 am and then again at 4 pm every day. Wahlberg shared his workout with 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,” he added.
In addition to advocating for clean eating and plenty of exercise, Wahlberg’s also thrown his support behind particular multivitamins and protein powders. His Whole Food Multivitamin has perfect 5-star reviews on Amazon.
