Pain & Gain is a 2013 American comedy crime film directed by Michael Bay and starring Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, and Anthony Mackie. The film is loosely based on a story Pete Collins published in a 1999 series of Miami New Times articles and compiled in the book Pain & Gain: This is a True Story (2013), which details the kidnapping, extortion, torture, and murder of several victims by an organized group of criminals comprising bodybuilders affiliated with the Sun Gym.The film’s title is a play on the common adage, frequently used in fitness: “No pain, no gain”.
At 6’5, 265 pounds, Johnson already looked the part for his role in Pain and Gain, the new Michael Bay movie that hits theaters this weekend. Wahlberg, however, had recently slimmed down to a trim 160 pounds to play average guy John Bennett in Ted. In two months, the actor packed on 40 pounds of muscle to achieve the hulking, action-hero physique necessary to avoid being dwarfed by his mammoth co-star.
“I actually planned on getting bigger than I did [for the movie], but I was getting ready to film Broken City right before, and the director wanted me to be thinner. I weighed 185–190 at the time, and got down to 165 for the role in Broken City, so I had to start from a place that’s below my normal body weight. But I was still able to get up to 212 for Pain & Gain. I took a lot of Mass Gainer. It’s funny, because I already had my marked products done when I started training for the movie, so I basically had my own line just in time. But I was eating 10 meals a day. I mean, I’d go to bed at 10 o’clock after eating a meal and then wake up at 2 o’clock to eat, still full from my last meal”, said Wahlberg.
“I was training five days a week. I’d start with benching, and then I’d do my squats and lunges, then I’d do a lot of old-school stuff. I’d literally do a row of machines at the Sports Club/LA. One set of every single machine all the way down the row. I’d leave the hotel at 4:30 in the morning—just as the nightclubs were letting out on South Beach. I’d walk in the gym as the door opened at 5:00 AM every day. ”
