More from the Jeff Files...

Yes, occasionally, one of my brother-in-law, Jeff's, endlessly forwarded emails turns out to be USEFUL!

invisiblebarbells.jpgExercise for People Over 40 (really, try this)

Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side. With a 5-lb potato sack 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 sacks. Then try 50-lb potato sacks and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato sack 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 of the sacks.

Oh good, I was wondering if I was the only one to "get" this. My husband read it and didn't get it at all. Even when I told him to re-read the last line, he STILL thought it was legit. DOH!

That was pretty funny. How long 'til the next worthwhile one?
