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 weeks, move up to 10-lb. potato sacks. Then try 50-lb. potato sacks.

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.)

Once you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each sack.

A very small potato. Ha, ha.

Reminds me of my grandfather. He held my aunt, when she was a small baby, out at arm's length, and said if he did this every day, eventually he would be able to lift a grown woman that way.

BTW, your link puts unwanted software on a computer, (trojan).
