Exercise for people over 50

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

With a 5-lb. 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 weeks, move up to 10-lb. potato sacks. Then try 50-lb. potato sacks.

Eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb. potato sack in each hand, and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute.
(I'm at this level.)

Once you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each sack.


When you lose your path...
Take off your shoes!

Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow;
It only saps today of its strength.
