After his 2:30am alarm goes off, Mark takes half an hour for prayer time, after which he grabs breakfast, at 3:15am.

By 3:40am Mark’s in the gym for his first workout of the day, which ends at 5:15am.

Then, at 5:30am he grabs a post-workout meal before getting into the shower at 6am.

At 7:30am it’s time to play some golf with friends, during which he grabs a snack at 8am.

After his time on the course, at 9:30am, Mark spends one hour in a cryo chamber for muscle recovery.

He grabs another snack at 10:30am and sets aside two hours from 11am until 1pm for family time with his wife Rhea Durham and his children, Ella, 15, Michael 12, Brendan, nine and Grace, eight.

His last snacks comes at 3:30pm, just before his last workout of the day at 4pm.
