That I fell for it.
It's tough but I did it!!
Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side.
With a 5-lb 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 10-lb potato bags.
Then try 50-lb potato bags and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute. (I'm at this level.)
After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag.
Peggy, a high school girlfriend sent me that, and, I sat and laughed at that. I thought it was really funny.
Funny yes, but it sounds a lot like the exercise routine after I messed up my right shoulder a few years ago doing military presses with 160lbs.
Getting old sucks...
I am definitely not a pro plumber, but I am a pro crastinator
I don't have potatoes, but I have onions.
Can I use onions instead?
That was funny.
I guess I missed Cookies post.
Why is she always picking on us old folks ?
Because I can.
I started reading the first post to my son Jamie, and he about had a fit. As strong as he is, he couldn't imagine lifting fifty pound sacks out like that.
And then I read the part about putting potatoes in the bag, and he breathed a deep sigh of relief. He was getting a bit worried there.
