"Yes, finally, something for all of us !"... this is my kind of exercise!

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, then relax. Each day, you'll find that a 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, still holding your arms straight for more than a full minute. (I'm  at this level.)     

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