Cowart's Common Room
This is good for upper arms!

I just had to pass this along for anyone, like me, who has trouble getting rid of that jiggly bit of underarm flab. I like it because it makes use of simple things you have in the kitchen and doesn't require any gym equipment.

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.
