Exercise Program for People Over Sixty
Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side.
With a 5-pound potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out f rom your sides and hold them there for 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 a 10-pound bags.
Then try 50- pounds bags, and eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-pound potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute.
After you feel confident at that level, place a potato in each bag.
