Mark Wahlberg Takes a Dip Into Icy Cold Water
Mark Wahlberg does what’s necessary in order to maintain the Greek-God-like physique of his. And if that means taking a dip into a cold plunge tank and sitting there neck-deep, then so be it. Taking to Instagram, Wahlberg posted a video where he was seen doing exactly this.
He captioned the post, “I thought Boston was cold.” In the video, Wahlberg compares the feeling to that of being in the Atlantic, before getting corrected by his wife who reminded him it’s actually the Pacific. Although the Boogie Nights actor was breathing heavily throughout the dip, he wasn’t one to back out from a challenge.

Seven times Mr. Olympia, Phil Heath, is also on Wahlberg’s side when it comes to this recovery method. He also shared a video talking about the benefits of the cold plunge as he got into 39-degree waters for recovering his body. He recommends everyone try it out and that people must challenge themselves every day.
Another Recovery Method Used By Mark Wahlberg
Back in 2018, Wahlberg appeared on Ellen where he talked about how he uses a cryo chamber to let his body recover after a tough workout session at the time. Wahlberg stated,
“The cryo chamber was like a 150 [degree] below zero. You go in for three minutes, but you can move around, you can listen to a song. And it really kind of helps with your recovery…You go in, you know, you have a mask on, gloves, socks, a hat…I have a pair of underwear on.”
When Ellen DeGeneres asked him how his “stuff” deals with the cryo chamber, the actor replied, “It just shrivels up a little, but it’s okay.” Well, there is no stopping Wahlberg when it comes to treating his body like a temple! He truly is an inspiration.
