A New Exercise

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

With a 5-pound potato sack 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-pound potato sacks. Then try 50-pound potato sacks, and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-pound potato sack in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute. (Our Blog Manager is at this level presently.)

After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each of the sacks.

    It’s been a while since I checked in. My family and I moved and started a new business. Thanks for sharing the laughs!
