Exercise for people over 50!


Begin by standing on a comfortable surface,
where you have plenty of room at each side.

With a 5-lb potato bag 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 bags.
Then try 50-lb potato bags and
then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato bag in each hand
and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute.
  (I'm at this level.)     

After you feel confident at that level, put a POTATO in each bag.

Hope this inspires you to start today! Have a great weekend!!!
