MARINE CORPS EXERCISE REGIMEN FOR PEOPLE OVER 70

For those of us over 70, this is a great exercise regimen. For you young’uns out there (under 70), just keep it in mind, until you reach that magic 70 number !

Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room on each side.

 

With a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides. 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 then 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.

 

After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag.
