    EXERCISE FOR PEOPLE OVER 60

    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 56lb potato bags and eventually try to get to where you can lift a 112lb 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.

    A very good exercise is getting dozens of bloody cameras unpacked, checked, re-boxed, wrapped, labelled and carting them off to the Hermes depot !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    On a serious note, to help lower my blood pressure I was advised by the doctor to do at least 20 mins of hard exercise three times per week.. ie .. work up a sweat..

    simply talking the dogs for a walk each day is all very well he said, better than sitting on your bum.. but does little for the heart and lungs.

    Jan's still thinking about it :cool:;)

    Ah - exercise! Whenever I feel the need for it, I just lie down until the feeling passes away.
