Exercise For The Over 40’s

Thanks to my sister Ruth for this classic!

Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where there is plenty of room on each side.
With a 5-kg 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  30 seconds, 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-kg potato sacks.

Then try 25-kg potato sacks and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 50-kg potato sack in each hand . (I’m at this level.)

After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each sack!
