Ready for a work-out?

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

With a 5lb 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 10lb potato bags.

Then move up to 50lb potato bags, and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100lb potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute. (I’m at this level now.)

After you feel confident at that level, put one potato in each sack.
