Talking Exercise for old people...

This seems a little daunting to start with but if you apply yourself you may find that it's not as difficult as you think.

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

With a 5-kg 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-kg potato sacks.

Then try 25-kg potato sacks and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 50-kg 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 sack.

Oh you are way more advanced than me! I'm here....

Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
