Exercise for Seniors
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, 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 move up to 50-lb potato sacks, and then eventually try to
get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato sack in each hand and hold your
arms straight for more than a full minute. (I´m at this level now.)
See Part II below......
After you feel confident at that level, put one potato in each sack.
