Type of exercising good for older folks
This is for older people only ...... younger people try it at their own
But those who are getting along in years, and would like to adopt this
regimen, three days a week works well.
Begin by standing straight, 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.
After a few weeks, move up to 10-LB. Potato sacks, and then 50-LB.
potato sacks, and eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-LB
potato sack in each hand and hold your arms straight out for more than
a full minute.
After you feel confident at that level, start putting a couple of
potatoes in each of the sacks, but be careful not to overdo it.
