An Exercise to Build Up Strength for Today’s Middle-Age Nerds

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

With a 5- kg 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.  After a couple of weeks, move up to 10- kg potato bags.

Then try 50- kg potato bags.  Then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100- kg potato bag 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 bag.

I'd love to hear from you. Comments make my day. Please feel free to share your thoughts and feelings!
