    GETTING FIT FOR YOUR NEXT HUNT !!

    Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you
    have plenty of room at each side.


    With a 2kg 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 5kg potato bags.


    Then try 25kg potato bags and then eventually try to get to where you
    can lift a 50kg potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight
    for more than a full minute. ( I'm at this level now, and feeling really good..)


    After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag. :biggrin2:
