Mark Wahlberg explains why he won't 'celebrate' fitness goals for long: 'It's onto the next!'


Mark Wahlberg likes to make new fitness goals every day.
The 52-year-old actor is known for staying in shape or drastically changing things up for his roles in blockbuster movies like 'Transformers' and 'Father Stu' but insisted that he doesn't celebrate his achievements for long before moving on to his next fitness target.
He told Fox News Digital: "You know what, clean living is the key. Eat right, exercise, everything in moderation. If you're going to have a couple of glasses of Flecha – neat, clean, have some water, recover – everything in moderation. You always want to celebrate your accomplishments and work hard, but on to the next.
"Don't spend too much time dwelling on something you've already done. We have new goals every day, more things to accomplish. We want to encourage people to be the healthiest, best versions of themselves."
The 'Uncharted' star also explained that "recovery" is the most important thing when going through his body transformations and suggested that keeping hydrated before going to bed - espeically after drinking a small amount of neat alcohol - is paramount to achieving the desired result.
"Well, recovery is the most important thing, but you always have to get the proper amount of rest, the proper amount of hydration, and recovery is the key, especially if you're getting older.
"If you're going to be sipping on some tequila, let's [get] some neat, Flecha tequila, have a water, and then have another and have some water. Lots of water before you go to bed, that's the key to recovery."
For his new movie 'Arthur the King', Mark went on yet another fitness journey in what he called the "most physically demanding role" of his career so far.
He explained: "I tore my meniscus the first day, and I'm producing the movie, so I couldn't shut the production down. I had to fight through.
"These guys, you know, adventure racers, endurance athletes, [are] incredible, absolutely incredible."
