For any of you who are (or any who soon will be) getting on in years, I thought I would let you, my friends, in on a little secret I've found for building my arms and shoulder muscles. You might wish to adopt this regimen - 3 days a week works well.

I started by standing outside behind the house and, with a 5 pound potato sack in each hand, I extended my arms straight out to the side and held them there as long as I could. After a few weeks of this, I moved up to 10 pound potato sacks, then 50 pound potato sacks, and finally got to where I could lift a 100 pound potato sack in each hand and hold my arms straight out for more than a full minute!

Next, I started putting a few potatoes in the sacks, but I would caution you not to overdo it at this level.
