    EXERCISE FOR PEOPLE OVER
    50

    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 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. (I'm at this level.)

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

    I'm over 70 and this is my exercise program:

    When I get the urge to exercise, I lie down until it passes.

    I get my exercise flying off the handle, jumping to conclusions and throwing fits.

    OK! Lets get serious! Here is my exercise program every Monday, Wednesday and Friday..


    Up at 5:00 AM and go to the gym, Lafitness.


    1. Laps in the pool for one hour non stop .


    2. Hot tub for 15 minutes.


    3. To the main floor: 8 upper body weigh devices, weights from 30 pounds to 130 pounds.


    4. To the mats for several stretch exercises and stretch a device that you sit on and perform stretches.


    5. Back to the hot tub for 10 minutes


    6. Back to the pool for an additional 20 minutes.




    Home for toast and coffee. At one time I used the; Tread mill, elliptical and stationary bike for 30 minutes each. However, had some minor knee problems so I backed off.



    I also might mention that I have a 4 year old Yellow Lab, We go for a walk EVERY day weather permitting. We go to a Township Park that has various trails in the woods. I let the dog run off lead, we usually go for at least one hour.





    SO, WHAT DO YOU DO?

    It seems that most people aren't very serious about this post, but it really is important. Almost everyone should do at least 30 minutes of aerobics three times a week, a weight workout at least twice a week, and flexibility and balance exercises almost every day. It sounds like a lot, but it can be done in what really isn't much time. As the saying goes " what will fit into your schedule better, exercising an hour a day, or being dead 24 hours a day."

    Got a personal trainer two times a week and do water jogging 3 times a week. If it wasn't for Johnny Walker Black & all the great restaurants around the Villages I would soon have a AAA profile.
