    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 don't have much strength or energy these days.

    I wonder if I could start with mashed potato bags and work up to tater tot bags.

    Speaking of burlap, remember when Lucy and Ethel wore dresses made of same?
