Healthy Hints

1) Develop Super Power Shoulders

by Chris Fewkes

Here's an exercise that can improve your golf, especially your length off the tee, by building muscle strength in the arms and shoulders, and it'll only take a minute or so a day. So you owe it to yourself to try it.

Initially try the exercise every other day or 3 times a week with a rest on Sundays.

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

With a 5-lb. (2 kilogram) potato sack in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides, and hold them there as long as you can, say 30 seconds initially.

Each day, you'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer.

Try to reach a full minute, then relax .

After a couple of weeks, when you can do the exercise with out straining,  move up to 10-lb. (5 Kg) potato sacks.

Then 25-lb. (10Kg) potato sacks, and eventually try to get to where you can lift a 50-lb. (20 or even 25 Kg) potato sack in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute.

After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each of the sacks,

but ... be ... very ... careful ...
