This post is especially for any readers over 50 and for my friends that are doing the Fit Mommy Friday challenge.
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 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.
LOL thought you could use a good laugh. My sister sent me this in an e-mail. I just had to share.I will be 50 next year but hopefully be exercising now when I am only 49 I will be way ahead of this level when I turn 50.
