Mark Wahlberg is super fit at 50 – and he’s revealed all his tricks in a brand new video shared on his Instagram account.

The Uncharted actor filmed a video of himself shirtless, flaunting his highly toned abs to promote his health brand Performance Inspired.

In the video, Mark raises his arms to flex his muscles, and says: ‘This is 50’.

He then takes a razor to shave his moustache, commenting: ‘Guess what? This s*** is gone’.

Mark recently discussed his struggle to lose weight after he gained an impressive two stone to play Father Stu.

He is amongst the ranks of Christian Bale, Jared Leto and Jake Gyllenhaal when it comes to complete body transformations for a role.

Speaking about the weight loss, he said: ‘I would say it’s easier to stay in shape than it is to get in shape,’ Mark began.    

‘I put on 30 pounds after for another film, that was really difficult. I’m not getting younger,’ he added.

Taking to Instagram in May, Mark showed off his dramatic weight change for the role.

The Departed star shared shocking before-and-after comparison photographs, and revealed in the caption he’d gained 13.5kg (30 pounds) in six weeks for the role of boxer-turned priest Stuart Long.

In the caption, he wrote: ‘From this 3 weeks ago, to this, now. Thanks to @chef_lawrence_d cooking.’

Mark has previously gained and lost weight for movies such as Pain and Gain, Spenser Confidential, The Gambler and The Fighter. 

In 2018, the star broke the internet with his incredibly fastidious workout routine, which included him setting his alarm to wake him up at 2:30am each morning for a work out.
