Pass this along to your senior friends.


For those getting along in years, here is a little secret for building arm and shoulder muscles. Three days a week works well.

Begin by standing outside behind the house, and with a 5-lb. potato sack

in each hand... extend your arms straight out to your sides and hold
them there as long as you can.

After a few weeks, move up to 10-lb. potato sacks and then 50-lb. potato sacks, and finally 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.




start putting a few potatoes in the sacks, but be careful not to
 overdo it.
