The Importance of Exercise - Part 2

When I reached 65, I thought I needed to increase my exercise levels and booked into an aerobics class for seniors.  For thirty minutes I shvitzed by bending, twisting, pulling, pushing and hopping up and down. But then, by the time I got my leotards on, the class was over. What a klutz I was.

I then decided to make up my own exercises. I invented this one for those who need to build arm and shoulder muscles. Do it twice a week to give good results. The only equipment you will need are some potato sacks. But be careful, use some saychel.   

INSTRUCTIONS: Stand on a carpet and ensure you have plenty of room on each side of you. Hold a 5lb potato sack in each hand and extend your arms sideways, straight out from your sides. Hold this position for as long as you can, then relax. You'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer as each day goes by. Do this for 2 weeks then move up to 10lb potato sacks and repeat the exercise. Repeat this with 50lb potato sacks and then, finally, with 100lb potato sacks. When you have reached this level you can move onto stage 2 - start putting a couple of potatoes in each of the sacks, but be careful not to overdo it.
