(Newser) – Asked by a fan about his daily routine, Mark Wahlberg offered up a detailed rundown on Instagram ... and, well, it's quite interesting. It starts with a wakeup time of 2:30am, includes three meals, three snacks, two showers, two workouts, and a round of golf, and ends with a 7:30pm bedtime. See a screenshot here, then check out the reactions that are pouring in:

  • "Yep, that’s a 2:30am wake up. Followed by thirty minutes of prayers, some breakfast, a strenuous work-out and, most importantly, 90 full minutes in the shower (which we assume is freezing cold)," writes Nick Pope at Esquire, pointing out that Wahlberg's first shower is pegged at 6am, and the next activity isn't until 7:30am. Speaking of those prayers, they aren't scheduled to start until 2:45am; "between 2:30 and 2:45 there's just 15 minutes where he's just staring into the darkness," writes R. Eric Thomas at Elle.
  • And what is that next activity after the 90-minute shower? This tweet sums it up: "Mark Wahlberg’s daily schedule is absolutely mad. After an hour-and-a-half in the shower: golf."
