This is so good I have to share it -- and I thank regular reader, Sam, known as Sunnysidey, for a blog link that I am filching this exercise routine from. I really believe in giving credit where it's due. A little bell in the back of my brain tells me this is not a brand not routine.
Stand comfortably in a place were you have plenty of room on either side. When you are entered and balanced, lift a five pound potato bag in each hand. Hold your arms straight out in front of you; hold the position for a minute -- or try to. Work up to a minute during repeated daily sessions if necessary. You will be able to hold the bags a bit longer, if not every day. every week with regular practice. When you reach a minute try to work up toward a minute and a half. When that is possible change to ten pound potato bags. Again work toward a minute and eventually toward a minute and a half. Change to fifty pound potato bags. This will be easier than perhaps you expect.
When you reach this pinnacle and can hold the bags for a minute and a half, add a potato to each bag. Continue in increments as before. This exercise is not restricted to the young and fit.
