Monday Musings - Exercise Tips


Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side.  Place your feet shoulder width apart.  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. 

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 at this level now).

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

Peace and Joy

Jeremiah 17:7-8 (New International Version)7 "But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him.     8 He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit."
