Workout schedule – how to build muscle strength
I came across this exercise suggested for the not so young to build muscle strength in the arms and shoulders.
The article suggested doing it three days a week.
- Begin by standing on a comfortable, flat surface, where you have plenty of room at each side. With a 1kg potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Try to hold for a full minute, 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 5kg potato bag. Then a 7kg potato bag and eventually try to get to where you can lift a 10kg potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute.
(I’m at this level).
- When you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each of the bags.
I liked it. What about you?
