New exercise regimen


Recommended Posts

I came across this exercise suggested for seniors, to build muscle

strength in the arms and shoulders.

I'm not suggesting you're a senior, but we all need to keep fit and

this seems so easy, so I thought I'd pass it on.

The article suggested doing this exercise three days a week.

Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of

room at each side.

With a 5-lb. potato sack in each hand, extend your arms straight out

from your sides, and hold them there as long as you can.

Try to reach a full minute, and then relax.

Each day, you'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer.

After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb. potato sacks.

Then 50-lb. potatoes sacks, and then eventually try to get to where

you can lift a 100-lb. potato sack in each hand and hold your arms

out straight for more than a full minute.

Once you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each of the sacks.

.... and you thought for one moment that I was actually being serious!!!!
