Mark Wahlberg pumps more iron than any good golfer I know, but the more important fitness lesson I've learned through playing a few rounds of golf with him is what he eats during a long day on the course.
"Nutrition is 85 percent of getting yourself in shape" says Wahlberg, who maintains the bodybuilder physique you'll see in his new movie "Pain & Gain" (opens today) by eating smart, as well as working out five mornings a week.
Sliced turkey and chicken breasts, veggie wraps, salads, almonds, cashews, pistachios and trail mix were among the tasty treats Wahlberg shared during our back-to-back 10-hour days of golf recently.
"Walking a course like this is definitely good for you," Wahlberg said as a guest for the day at spectacular L.A. (Country Club) North. "Walk when you play and pay attention to what you eat, and any golfer will see fitness benefits."
See my interview with Mark, which appeared in our May issue's "Get Fit" package.
Without healthy knees, it's difficult to play as much golf as you want. So what do you do, as you get older in order to keep your knees primed for 18?
Even though you're not jumping or running in this sport, the torque and lower-body rotation necessary to swing the club makes knee health paramount.
We asked Mark Verstegen (@APCoach), founder of Athletes' Performance in Phoenix, for advice for keeping two of the most important joints in your body strong. I caught up with Verstegen this week at the SKLZ & Athletes' Performance event in New York City, as they debuted some new products and discussed the new top-notch training facility they're opening together out in Carlsbad, Calif.
Verstegen stressed the importance of strengthening your knees, even if you're not currently experiencing pain.
Watch the video below to see Mark and AP's Dan Cowan demonstrate a great exercise for all golfers.
