Mark Wahlberg's workout
Came across this workout... Marks always in pretty good shape he trains pretty hard, here's a sample workout:
Wahlberg warms up by jumping rope or doing a few sets of squats on the Power Plate (a machine with a vibrating platform that, studies have shown, may increase muscle activity as you do squats, deadlifts, and other exercises). Then he takes on the bags: 5 minutes each with the speed bag, double-end bag (that's the one with cables attaching it to the floor and ceiling), and heavy bag. Then mitt work, practicing punch combinations. After that, maybe some sparring. "My buddies from Boston are always dying to take my head off. Like Andy and Big Bo -- they're very tough. They'll go 10 rounds if you let them."
The boxing goes on for roughly 45 minutes. Wahlberg hits the weights even before the sweat dries from boxing. "I do 30 to 40 minutes," he says. "No rest. I superset everything." He breaks up the muscle groups depending on the day: Monday is legs, biceps, and back. Tuesday is chest, shoulders, triceps. Wednesday is legs and biceps again. He'll rest 2 days and start again on Saturday.
The iron work on its own, however, isn't enough for him. "I do everything wearing a 35-pound weighted vest," he says.

This reminds me of the workouts I used to do because I was an immature jackass and though I was impressing everyone. I've grown out of it a while ago...I'm 24.
Waring a vest when lifting is beyond retarded. Just put 35 pounds on the bar. It constricts you on deadlifts and squats, and serves no purpose on a bench other than to compress your lungs. I hear no mention of exercises where the vest is actually good: stairs, runs, etc.
All the boxing stuff is a great alternative if you hate cardio, but actual boxers run their ass off. He also makes no mention of abdominal hardening exercises, which are torture and totality necessary. This is a "fun" boxing workout, so sparring is a mistake. The headgear does no stop a hook from rattling your brain around. Also, a liver shot when you're not willing to get bashed with a medicine ball, which I'm not, is like getting punched in the nuts on your ribs.
I'm not entirely sure why I'm flaming this so hard. Sorry.

Im not going to get into the mark bashing, lol, but I will say I have always been intrigued by the vest, just never got around to buying one. There was a thread on here somewhere about it, just something that interested me.

Gunnar P just gave props to them in the new M&F, so it'll probably make a small comeback, I don't really see the true effectiveness of the device, especially for a general fitness enthusiast, maybe a surfer
