EXERCISE FOR PEOPLE OVER 40> Begin by standing on a comfortable surface where you haveplenty of room at each side. With a 5-lb. potato sack in eachhand, extend your arms straight out from your sides, and holdthem there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, andthen relax. Each day you'll find that you can hold this position for just abit longer. After a couple weeks, move up to 10-lb. potato sacks. Then try 50-lb.potato sacks. Then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb. potato sack in each hand, and hold your arms straight for
morethan a full minute. (I'm at this level.) After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each of thesacks.
