Mark’s investment comes after he offered a very detailed breakdown of his workout schedule, which begins at 2:30am and ends at 7:30pm.
On the former rapper’s check list were two major workouts that lasted more than an hour, two showers, snacks and meals, a cryo chamber recovery, golf and business meetings, in a routine that has baffled his fans.
It all begins at 2:30am when his alarm goes off. Next it’s a prayer session. Then the action star has breakfast at 3:15 am, his first meal of many throughout the day.

From 3:40am until 5:15am he has a serious workout session that includes weight lifting.
Mark’s 10million Instagram followers will already know about his early workouts as he often shares videos of his gym sessions under the hashtag #4amclub.
At 5:30am it’a a workout meal and then a shower at 6am, which bizarrely appears to last for 90 minutes.
By 7:30am the Shooter actor is playing golf, which could be considered another workout, but only for 30 minutes as a snack follows at 8am. Next it’s a cryo chamber session.
The A-list actor shares four children with wife Rhea – Ella-Rae, 15, sons Michael, 12, and Brendan, 10, and another daughter Grace, nine.
