Exercise for people over 40 years

EXERCISE FOR PEOPLE OVER 40

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

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.


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


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.)




After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag.

My husband and I are both laughing right now! As I began reading, I was thinking to myself that I just did this exercise, last night, standing in line at Walmart, waiting to be checked out, fighting the pre-Superbowl crowds. I like your way better!
