Cowart's Common Room

I know a lot of the Coos would like to be a little more fit and lose a bit of weight and I've found this really helpful.

Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side. With a 5lb potato sack in each hand extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold for as long as possible. Try to reach a full minute, then relax. Each day you will find that you can hold this position fo just a little bit longer. After a couple of weeks move up to 10lb sacks for a few weeks and then to 50lb sacks. I'm at this level.

Then when you're feeling really confident try putting some potatoes in the sacks.

Blossomcottage's Avatar Oh its like the exercise I used to try and get my ex husband to do ( he never did mind you) I wanted him to run 5 miles a day and then hopefully by the end of the week he would have been 35 miles away!
