    Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side. With a 5-LB potato sack 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 sacks. Then try 50-LB potato sacks and then eventually try to 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. (I'm at this level.)

    After you feel confident at that level, put a
    potato in each of the sacks.

    I loved it. I think even I could handle that exercise.

    I put this joke on one of the boards a very long time ago.

    Would you believe one of the respondents chastized me for suggesting such an impossible exercise regimen. She went on to tell me that even a HEALTHY PERSON couldn't lift that much weight and someone could get hurt!

    I'm going to have to copy and paste this on to word, then email the attachment to all my friends who don't "get" these DDs. I'm STILL laughing!

    You had me going too. I was like, no way, are you crazy and then of course the punchline comes in.

    Way too funny. Thanks for the hump day morning laugh.

    OMG Rocky,

    You had me going too . I figured you have got to be kidding me. The 5 lbs was bad enough and when you got to 50 ane 100 I figured this person must be super human. Not me for sure. Luv the punch line (-: !!
