It’s a hot summer for Mark Wahlberg, whose new film Ted 2 hits theaters everywhere Friday, while he covers Men’s Fitness for the fourth time.

The A-list muscleman was excited about the magazine milestone as he appeared in Coney Island Tuesday to launch the latest franchise of his family burger business, Wahlburgers, with his brother Donnie.

“It’s cool! I only wish they’d get me to stop flexing, but they always want that flex, so it’s all good,” he said.

The handsome film star with a perennial eight-pack also shared his advice on balancing dietary disciple with high-calorie fun.

“You don’t want to live a bootcamp type of existence — you want to be able to enjoy, have fun, then get back to work.”

Wahlberg appears in the July/August 2015 issue of Men’s Fitness, which goes on sale June 29.
