Exercise for people over 60

Exercise for Seniors1. Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

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