Exercise For People Over 50 (Or those who feel like it)

All of my doctors as well as the Pickle Queen have been after me to get more exercise. I know that Gator Babe would like to see Catfish get more exercise as well. I’ve been on this exercise program for most of the winter and strongly recommend it to those whose ‘partners’ are on their cases. I think Catfish could handle this program too.

DO NOT OVER DO ON THIS EXERCISE

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 for 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 little longer.

After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb. potato sacks. When you have mastered the 10-lb potato sacks, try 50-lb. potato sacks. Eventually you will be able to 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 this level, put a potato in each 5-lb potato sack and start the process over again. If you have problems, try a “B” sized spud.

Keep your fork
