Hollywood Hunks That Work the Hardest for Their Bods
Mark Wahlberg might have a buff bod now, but getting there wasn't so simple. The 42-year-old told Men's Health magazine in April, "I'd wake up at 4:30 every morning, have a nice big breakfast — a preworkout igniter — and then I'd hit the heavy weights, depending on the day and the routine for the day. But it always involved lifting heavy, and mostly just lifting weights. And then a protein shake right after the workout. And then chicken, steak, fish, a little bit of pasta here and there.
Just really overloading, meal after meal after meal."
Wahlberg's "Pain & Gain" co-star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is known for being a muscle man, but according to his tweets in June, his transformation into the character Hercules for his upcoming film is taking a lot of hard work and dedication. In a detailed image on the social network site, Johnson wrote, "My current 22 week diet for the role of HERCULES. Cardio & iron before going to set.
(Lion blood is optional;)." In the pic, he made sure to include the various components of his diet, which he refers to as "The 12 Labors Diet"; he eats seven — yes, seven — meals a day, jam-packed with proteins and vegetables.
Though Henry Cavill looks like Superman, getting into crime-stopping shape involved a pretty grueling schedule. According to ABC News, the "Superman" star went through intense two-hour workouts, five or six days a week, for 11 months!
