Mark Wahlberg packed on nearly 40 pounds for his role in Pain & Gain, which is very impressive by any standard. Where most people turn to expensive trainers and complicated programs, Mark went with the oldschool mentality: Eat Big, Lift Big, Get Big. That’s just what he did.
Mark focused on a split routine utilizing lots of supersets and high intensity movements. He aimed for linear progression on his lifts and went as intense as possible. He used a A/B/A split for training, keeping it simple and oldschool. In order to support this type of training, he would eat 10-12 meals a day, drinking mass gainers and eating a lot of protein.
