Exercize advice for senior citizens

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
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!
