    A great exercise, especially for us older adults (post 45+ish crowd)

    Came across this exercise suggested for older adults, to build muscle strength in the arms and shoulders. It seems so easy, so I thought I'd pass it on to some here at SMF. The article suggested doing it three days a week.

    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, 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 sacks.

    Then try 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)

    After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each of the sacks....

    Does a glass of rum and coke count as one, or two, spuds? [​IMG] Terry
