Exercise for Seniors

Try out this great exercise routine:

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

2) 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.

3) After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato bags.

4) 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.)

5) After you feel confident at this level, put a potato in each bag.
