Carrying around all that extra weight, wouldn't that do something?

I don't think that it'd give you spectacual gains but I would imagine it would still have its benefits and your body will adapt to having the extra load on it. I'd reccomend a weight vest to make certain exercises harder (push ups, skipping, chin ups, etc). There was a guy on my football team who would wear one around the halls in the morning but I never noticed a difference from when he started (then again, all he did was jsut walk around).

I tried that years ago with a 30 pound vest. Traps and shoulders got extremely fatigued. Gave it up after 3 days.
Finally just resorted to running up the stairs of a 12 story DOD building twice a week. First time 1 step at a time, second time skipping a step. Thighs actually pumped up as well as doing several sets of squats.
Stopped after 9/11. The vest was black with 12 pockets for lead weights. Kept getting stopped and questioned in the stairwell. Vest looked like something a suicide bomber would wear.
