A great excercie.


EXERCISE FOR PEOPLE OVER 50

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.

hehehehe,

until I came to the 100 ib bag, I thought, it is do-ABLE. Then I LOL.

Tell your daughter I started running again. Slowly at first, I run at morning tea, and my kids in school shout Go Ann Go. I don't know how far I can reach, but I am aiming on a big one.

Yesterday, i went for a four hour tramp. I almost died.
