EXERCISE FOR PEOPLE OVER 50

As always, before starting any exercise program, consult with your doctor first....

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.

Received as an email :) I thought it was pretty funny :)

APP, I believe I can do that, probably not for very long though. I loved it, you must post that on Pins & Needles. Take care

I'll chat with you later on Pins and Needles ;-)
