For those of us over 70 - this is a great exercise regimen - for you young'uns
out there (under 70), just keep it in mind until you reach that magic 70 number !

Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room
on each side. With a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight
out from your sides. 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 currently at this level.)

After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag. :)
