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


    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.)


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

    It is never too late to start exercising. Due to some arthritis issues I go for cardio workouts on my bike. There's something really satisfying about pedaling up and through a mountain pass.
